It’s time for some more free games if you have an Xbox Gold membership. Microsoft has announced which games will become available to download completely free, two on July 1 and two on July 16. Here are the games that will soon become available for subscribers; all Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible and playable on Xbox One:
- Grow Up – Xbox One (July 1-30)
- Runbow – Xbox One (July 16-August 15)
- Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days – Xbox 360 (July 1-15)
- LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game – Xbox 360 (July 16-30)
Normally, these four games would run for a grand total of $60, but they will be completely free next month. It is not the most exciting collection of games, but it is tough to argue with free.
Grow Up is the sequel to Grow Home, an adorable procedurally-generated exploration game where you control a robot named B.U.D. Scale giant plants and marvel at the beautiful world the game creates.
Runbow is probably the gem of the bunch. It originally released on the Wii U in 2015, and we were quite taken with that version. This side-scrolling racer features some innovative mechanics and cameos from several other indie games. This is the game’s debut on the system.
Kane & Lynch 2 returns to the cover-based shooting combat of the first game, and actually tells a decent story about it’s two desperate and despicable leads.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is in the same vein as all the other LEGO games out there, but this time transported into the world of the Johnny Depp film series. Goofy, self-aware humor and destructible environments abound.
You can grab each of these free games next month on Xbox Live. Here’s the release video to give you a taste of what each game has to offer:
