Summer is gaining momentum and July is just around the corner – so are Xbox Games with Gold for the upcoming month. Microsoft has announced that Xbox users will be able to claim 4 awesome games at the start of the month of July:
- Planet Alpha
- Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break
- Conker: Live & Reloaded
- Midway Arcade Origins
The indie adventure platformer unlocks the door to a beautiful world filled with aliens, mystery, and danger. Marooned alone on this planet, you must interact with the world around you to harness the energy of both day and night. The elements of sci-fi add a sprinkle of otherness that makes Planet Alpha (Eneba store price €19.99) an engaging experience worth every moment spent here. While the ruthless enemies are playing a wild goose chase with you, there is no other option but to persist and survive in the breathtaking world of Planet Alpha.
Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break
Ever wondered what would happen if competitive tower defence met arcade action? Well, that’s Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break (Eneba store price €4.06) to you, people. Sprawling, full of top-tier comedy and with some bizarre moments served as a side dish throughout the gameplay. The most fun aspect of the game is that you can design and customize your very own levels and even share them with your friends. This online competition is as hectic as it gets, so if you enjoy creating and participating in the craziest arcade experiences, then grab Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break for free while you can.
Conker: Live & Reloaded
What could be more fitting for July than adventures with a knucklehead squirrel that somehow got its hands on weapons of mass destruction? In Conker: Live & Reloaded (retail price €9.99), you can play solo in the daring single-player mode where you are provided weapons, abilities, and vehicles. Bear in mind, though, that you must choose one of the six combat specialists and the gear you receive will be based on this choice. Otherwise, feel free to go nuts (pun intended) and have a good laugh witnessing the most creative parodies of overused movie tropes and more.
Midway Arcade Origins
Seems like Microsoft decided July is the perfect month for arcade gaming since the last (but not least) game is also an arcade title. In fact, Midway Arcade Origins (retail price €19.99) houses a compilation of 30 timeless entries of arcade games from the golden age of arcade gaming. For free you can relive the childhood memories with cult-classic releases like Defender, Gauntlet, Rampart, Spy Hunter, and more. If you are not familiar with any of these titles, all the better because you can try out and see what gaming was like a couple of decades back!
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!
