Microsoft Publishing on the official Xbox News Blog site announced Games with Gold selection of August free games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
As always, this month’s Xbox Live Gold lineup includes four games (two each from Xbox One and Xbox 360). In August 2022, users are waiting for:
- a cat cafe simulator set in the magical world of Calico (Xbox One) – from August 1st to 31st;
- Roguelike platformer ScourgeBringer (Xbox One) – August 16 – September 15;
- Action in the open world Saints Row 2 (Xbox 360) – from August 1 to 15;
- Co-op stealth action Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine (Xbox 360) – August 16-31.
Microsoft reminds that regardless of the platform of origin, all projects from the Games with Gold August selection are available on Xbox One as well as on Xbox Series X and S as part of the backwards compatibility program.
Users can still activate games from the July lineup: Beasts of Maravilla Island Photo Adventure (until July 31), Torchlight Fantasy Action RPG (until July 31), and Relicta Puzzle (until August 15).
Keep in mind that starting October this year, Microsoft will no longer include games from the Xbox 360 in monthly collections for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. The platformer explains this by saying this “limit reached”.
