It is another month, and that means a new roster of Games with Gold. Xbox Gold subscribers have five new games to download and enjoy. This month there is a little something for everyone to enjoy. For August, we have everything from side-scrolling adventures to epic hack-and-slash monster fighting mayhem.
Let’s take a look at the games Xbox has given us to finish off our summer strong:
For Xbox Live subscribers who love a good Japanese style hack-and-slash adventure, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is part of this month’s Games with Gold. Warriors Orochi 3 includes characters from Dynasty Warriors 7, and Samurai Warriors 3.
Warriors Orochi 3 takes places a few years after the events of Warriors Orochi 2. The warriors have begun to rebuild their lives after the “good ending” of the previous game. It seems that there is peace, at least until a new enemy appears. Can you beat the monstrous eight headed hydra which has come to wreak havoc on China?
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will be available on Games with Gold from August 1st to August 31st 2016.
Fans of the WWE wrestling franchise can now download WWE 2K16 with their Games with Gold subscription. 2K16 includes the largest roster of playable characters of all the WWE titles. The roster includes 120 playable wrestlers, including several characters in their video game debut. Subscribers who download WWE 2K16 on the Xbox One will also have no loading screens between entrances.
WWE 2K16 will be available on Games with Gold from August 16th to September 19th 2016.
It would not be Games with Gold without a new puzzle game every month. Tumblestone is a colorful and action packed block matching game. This game features a single player story mode, as well as some online multiplayer to enjoy with friends. Solve progressively more difficult puzzles, and uncover the mystery of the Tumblecrown.
The makers of Tumblestone are not responsible for broken controllers or friendships.
