What are this month's free Games With Gold games?

The August 2018 Xbox Live Games With Gold line-up hasn't yet been released by Microsoft but the rumour is that it will be awesome.

Last month had a distinctly indie vibe to it but it's not clear what Xbox are planning for August.

Games with Gold typically release the names of games on the 22nd of each month but we are still waiting at the moment.

The announcement has been as late as the 27th before. Until then, take a look at July's games below.

What is Xbox Games With Gold?

Games With Gold is Microsoft's answer to the free games you get with Sony's PlayStation Plus.

You can get the free games on Xbox if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold - something that's required for online play.

Then, each month you receive four free games, two on the latest console and two for the previous generation.

These are yours to keep for as long as you have your Xbox Live Gold membership running.

Sony's PlayStation Plus also do their own monthly free games bonanza.
