The last month of the summer is just behind the corner and it’s about time to gear up for the upcoming cold season with some nifty games. Microsoft announced the lineup of 4 games with gold that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to claim in August:

  • Darksiders 3
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Lost Planet 3
  • Garou: Mark of the Wolves

Darksiders 3

The hack & slash adventure game is nothing but a grand time spent in the fictional world where deities embodying the Seven Deadly Sins have up-fallen the surface of our earth. In this iteration of the trilogy, you step into the shoes of Fury, a top-class warrior lady whose iron strength is the only thing that can exceed her charms. For an action-packed leisure time in August, Darksiders 3 is a grand addition to the library.


Now, if you want a cute yet entertaining adventure, then Yooka-Laylee is a perfect pick. This full of heart open-world platformer unlocks the door to a myriad of activities to keep you occupied for hours: interact with characters and the colourful environment, looting collectables, and more. Yooka-Laylee is designed with the intent to give a player complete control over the sequence of player’s actions, so no two players would have the same experience playing.

Lost Planet 3

Fans of survival games can rejoice over the free Lost Planet 3, characterized by the extreme and unpredictable conditions your controlled character must handle to see another day. In this part of the series, the colonial history of E.D.N. III on this strange, hostile planet unfolds some grim truths that Jim Peyton and his crew must face. The colonization is not bound to go as smooth as one may have anticipated…

Garou: Mark of the Wolves

Last but not least of August’s gold games is Garou: Mark of the Wolves, an arcade 2D fighter that’s the last iteration in the famous Fatal Fury series. With a roster of over 12 fighters, the game offers a memorable multiplayer experience for those that adore frenzy, challenge, and adrenaline as a side dish to the whole package. A perfect pick for those that love arcade fighting games with plot twists.

All of the games mentioned above are free to download only with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you don’t have an active sub yet, be sure to check out our special offerings on various Xbox Live Gold gift cards!
