Microsoft Germany reveals August Xbox Live Gold promotion

Microsoft Germany reveals August Xbox Live Gold promotion

Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games - two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360 - as part of the Games with Gold program for the month of August.

It seems that the Xbox One's library of backwards compatible games is always growing, and that's a good thing. If you're not interested in that whole 3D fad, check out the critically acclaimed sidescroller Limbo, the nostalgic shoot-em-up Metal Slug XX, the charming yet surprisingly dark So Many Me, or the futuristic arcade title Ultratron. For $9.99 a month, you can access over a hundred games already available plus Dirt Rally, Dead Rising 3, Limbo, Ultratron, So Many Me, Metal Slug XX, and Pharaonic starting on August 1. It competes with Sony's PlayStation Now, but unlike that service, Xbox Game Pass does not offer game streaming. If you've already played through Dead Rising 3, see if you can do it again this Summer in Nightmare Mode! Like previous Dead Rising games, you'll have the ability to craft insane weapons and unleash hell upon thousands of flesh-eating threats. First up, for Xbox One we've got the adorable Slime Rancher which tasks you with, well... ranching together Slimes. "Navigate your way through this black and white artistic masterpiece, solving puzzles and avoiding various dangers as you try to find a way out of the forest and into the light".

Indie platformers So Many Me and Ultratron are also two new additions.

Thibaut Courtois backs Alvaro Morata to "score a lot of goals"
We conceded three goals in half-hour and it's not simple, it was a hard situation but the reaction was very good", Conte admitted. We need to give him time to adapt, but we must be pleased with his performance today".

Luckily, the in-game money collected can be used to build up powers, and aid in health regeneration. "As you progress, the puzzles only get more challenging, making each solution that much sweeter to discover". Go solo or team with a friend for an old school couch co-op adventure.

Pharaonic. "Sprint, dodge, and fight your way through ancient Egypt in Pharaonic, a single-player 2D sidescrolling action RPG". They're ready for you to wax nostalgic with now!
