Today is your last chance as a member of Games With Gold to download two free games, including one popular exclusive Xbox One. In particular, the August Games with the gold titles – Gears of War 4 and Castlevania: Lords of the Shadow – will no longer be available for download today. The former is available on Xbox One, while the latter is an Xbox 360 game that can be played on Xbox One through backward compatibility.
Of course, with the release of Gears 5 next month, getting Gears of War 4 for free is a great opportunity if you haven't played the third person shooter yet. Gears 5 is a direct sequel to Gears of War 4 so if you haven't played the latter, you might be a little lost when the new one comes out in September.
Gears of War 4: "A new saga begins for one of the most acclaimed video game franchises in history," an official product description reads. "After fleeing an attack on their village, JD Fenix and his friends, Kait and Del, must rescue the loved ones and find the source of a monstrous new enemy.
" Never Fight Alone: Enjoy two player, op campaign with friends locally via split screen or over Xbox Live. Player 2 can choose Kait or Del Horde 3.0: Join with four others and fight wave after wave of increasingly difficult enemies, selecting your battle class, leveling up your skills and deploying fortifications everywhere on the map. Explosive Versus Multiplayer: Compete online in new and favorite types of games, all at 60fps on dedicated servers. A new visible ranking system means fairer matches for social, competitive and professional players. "
Bastards: Lords of the Shadow: " Leave as founder the gates of the Brotherhood of Light Method, which they called him Gabriel and raised him as his own. Over the years, he has developed an unprecedented mastery of martial arts. Prone to gloomy moods, he was deeply affected by the death of his only true love, Marie. He has now embarked on a search at the request of the Brotherhood's elders to find out why the world is in chaos, and inside it is a burning desire for revenge on those who have taken his beloved. "
While these two games will no longer be downloadable for free, Xbox Games With Gold is currently offering Hitman: The Complete First Season Earth Defense Forces 2025 and Forza Motorsport 6 free.
