Following the unveiling of the company’s new Xbox One X, the Project Scorpio gaming console which will go on sale in November for $499, Microsoft has revealed the four games that’ll be made available to its Xbox Live Gold members in July.
Xbox Live Gold members gain access to these four games as part of the Games with Gold program.
Two games each have been announced for Xbox 360 and Xbox One but due to Backward Compatibility, Xbox One owners can also download and play the games being released for Xbox 360.
So, for Xbox One owners, there are four titles to play this May while Xbox 360 just get their hands on two.
“Summer has officially arrived and we’re giving you plenty of reasons to stay inside with four exciting games coming to Games with Gold in July,” the company stated.
Free Xbox Games for July
The Games with Gold for July offers upto $60 worth of games for free for Xbox users.
Grow Up (Xbox One)
Runbow (Xbox One)
Kane & Lynch 2 (Xbox 360; Backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game (Xbox 360; Backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
Xbox One console users will exclusively enjoy Grow Up which will be available from July 1-30, and Runbow which will be available from July 16- August 15.
Grow Up involves users playing as a Botanical Utility Droid (B.U.D.) whose spaceship has been destroyed and scattered, and is traversing through space with his friend P.O.D. to recover parts of the ship while addressing challenges along the way.
Runbow is a fast-paced action game which can be played by 9 players at a time either on LAN or online in one of the four modes: Arena, King of the Hill, ColourMaster and The Bowhemoth.
Xbox 360 console users won’t be able to get their hands on the two aforementioned games but will get to play Kane & Lynch 2 and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game from July 1-15 and July 16-30, respectively.
While the former is an action shooter, which can either be played alone or alongside a friend over Xbox Live, the latter is an adventure game in LEGO form wherein you play as characters from the pop movie alongside your friends in co-op play.
