Members of the Xbox Live program get a great incentive called Games with Gold. Their subscription entitles them to a handful of free games every month. Ever since backward compatibility came to the Xbox One, the Games with Gold titles that are free for Xbox 360 owners are also available to Xbox One owners, so they essentially get double the number of free titles that they can download throughout the month.
Microsoft has now confirmed the Xbox Games with Gold for August 2017. Slime Rancher is the first title that’s free for Xbox One, it will be available for download free from August 1st through August 31st.
Xbox One owners will also be able to download Trials Fusion from August 16th to September 15th for free. Bayonetta goes free for Xbox 360 from August 1st to August 15th while Red Faction: Armageddon goes free the following day and will remain available for free until August 31st.
As previously mentioned, both Xbox 360 titles will be compatible with the Xbox One as well. Bayonetta and Red Faction: Armageddon will be available for Xbox One owners as well for free as part of the Games with Gold program.
The games must be downloaded in the time periods provided and once they are downloaded, they will remain free to play for life.
