If you're eager to learn what wondrous and mysterious titles will be a part of September's Games With Gold lineup, well, then you're just going to have to keep waiting because they haven't been announced yet! But we have learned of one, which is Snowcastle Games' Earthlock: Festival of Magic.

Having been in progress for more than four years, Earthlock finally releases on September 1st. It will do so directly into the Games With Gold program, according to an official Xbox Wire blog post. The game centers around the main character, Amon, and his friends on their journey to save Umbra.

Recently we also received Tumblestone directly on its release date. Though it has happened a few times in the past, if this trend continues, which allows indie developers to get more exposure for their titles at launch, Xbox gamers may have the chance to receive some pretty cool titles when they're new.

As for the other three titles — if you count them up, we are missing one Xbox One game and both Xbox 360 titles —according to the same blog post, we'll hear about them next week. If you haven't yet, don't forget to grab this month's remaining eligible titles, which are Beyond Good & Evil HD, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate and WWE 2K16.
