Xbox One Releases
On the Xbox One page, you can download Forza Horizon 2 from 1st August to 31st August. It’s a 2014 open-world racing game that combines realistic driving mechanics with some of the arcade-serial ideas like Burnout. For Honor is a melee game that compares the characters of three gangs against each other: Vikings, Samurai and Knights. A fourth gang will be added this fall in a free update along with a new and robust breakthrough mode. August 16 to September 15 is the timeframe for releasing the free version of For Honor.
Xbox 360 Releases
The latest free Xbox 360 game in August is a co-op game, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two that lets you save Wasteland with a magic brush. It is free from 16 to 31 August.
If you’re going through this before August 1, it’s not too late to play some of the free gold games in July. At this time, Xbox Live Gold members can download Death Squared and Assault Android Cactus for Xbox One & Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
