Microsoft today confirmed the titles that Xbox Live Gold members will receive for free as part of their subscription. Members will get four new free games this month – two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. Since the Xbox 360 titles are backwards compatible this means that Xbox One owners actually get four free games as part of their Xbox Live Gold subscription. There are some great titles included in this month’s lineup.
Xbox Live Gold members who have an Xbox One can download Earthlock: Festival of Magic for free during September. It’s a $29.99 value. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China which normally costs $9.99 is going to be available as a free download from September 16th to October 15th.
The $19.99 Forza Horizon is free for Xbox 360 starting September 1st. It will remain free through September 15th. Starting September 16th, owners of the previous generation console can download Mirror’s Edge for free until September 30th. That’s a saving of $14.99. Both of these games will be available to Xbox One owners as well for free.
You will need an Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to get these games for free. They only have to be downloaded in the period they are available for free, once you have downloaded them you can continue to play at your own pace.
