Games with Gold Revealed for August 2019

By Sean Carey,
August's Games with Gold games have been revealed with two big titles — albeit slightly older titles in the line-up.


Starting from the 1st and available for the entire month, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download one of the best Third-Person Shooters released on the Xbox One, Gears 4 — so you quickly squeeze in that playthrough before Gears 5 releases in September. In addition to Gears and available from August 16th - September 15th, Gold members can download Turn 10's brilliant entry into the Simulation Racing Game genre, Forza Motorsport 6.

For the Xbox 360, (but also plays on the Xbox One) we have Torchlight, Runic Games' Role Playing Dungeon Crawler, available from August 1st to the 15th. Following on from last month's Games with Gold, we are also getting another Castlevania game, the Hack & Slash game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow — which features a production credit from legendary games producer Hideo Kojima. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow can be downloaded from August 16th through to the 31st.

What do you think of this month's selection of Games with Gold? Are you happy, sad or frustrated? Let us know in the comments below.
