Microsoft details Games With Gold for August 2018
Summer is heating up, and it’s time to cool off with some sweet deals from Microsoft.The Washington-based gaming giant has a new batch of deals for gamers who have active Xbox Live Gold Subs.
As for the major bonuses, players can claim free copies of For Honor and Forza Horizon 2. Xbox One owners will also have the chance to check out Dead Space 3 and Epic Mickey 2, both of which being Xbox 360 titles that are available to play through backwards compatibility.
And as with all the Games with Gold deals, once you claim these titles, they are yours for as long as you want.
