Every month, Microsoft and Sony try to entice game enthusiasts with their free video games. However, Microsoft closed out the month of July by announcing the free titles for its Games With Gold during August 2017.

Four free games

As reported by Gamespot, Microsoft confirmed four free titles for the month of August, two of which will go to the Xbox 360 and two for the Xbox One. First up, Monomi Park’s life simulation video game “Slime Rancher” leads the way for Xbox One. Nonetheless, the game’s official description revealed that Beatrix LeBeau is having a tough time being a rancher, particularly when the character moves a thousand light years away for her line of work.

Also, Monomi Park previously expressed their intent to support the tech company's Xbox Play Anywhere, and this could indicate that the life simulation game might turn into a free Windows 10 video game in the future.

Next on the list for the Games With Gold August 2017 is Ubisoft's platform racing video game “Trials Fusion.” Microsoft made it known that in “Trials Fusion,” players would prepare to show off in ways they never imagined with the intuitive and addictive gameplay of the title. However, Monomi Park’s game will be free for the entire month, while Ubisoft's title will be available on Xbox One from August 15 until September 15.

Meanwhile, Platinum Games’ hack and slash video game“Bayonetta” will be free on Xbox 360 for the whole month of August.

Geek of Doom reported that playing the game as a witch with deadly weapons and magical powers, players flow gracefully in battle from one enemy to the next. Nonetheless, according to Windows Central, Xbox 360 players can also add “Bayonetta” for free to another backward compatible game for the Xbox One.

The last title in Microsoft’s Games With Gold August 2017 is Volition’s third-person shooter video game “Red Faction: Armageddon.” Just like “Bayonetta,” “Red Faction: Armageddon” will be free on Xbox 360.

Xbox Deals With Gold

Adding up to the free titles for Games With Gold August 2017, Microsoft’s director of programming for gaming network Xbox Live, Major Nelson, announced Xbox Deals With Gold for the week, including the basketball simulation game “NBA 2K17,” the racing video game “Forza Horizon 2,” and the first-person shooter video game“Call of Duty.”
