This Thursday will see the release of the next game given free to all Xbox Live Gold members as part of the ongoing Games with Gold offer, but currently we don't know which games will replace Assassins Creed 2 in the promotion. Until perhaps now.
As spotted by NeoGaf, Polish gaming website Xbox 360 Online Center is claiming information from "a reliable source" that August's offerings will be Capcom's Dead Rising 2 and the very popular Xbox 360 exclusive Crackdown.
Crackdown, of course, is the open world third person action game from 2007 where you play a super-powered Agent dealing with the unsavoury element of Pacific City - or more accurately, bouncing around a massive city playground collecting orbs and throwing cars at unsuspecting criminals. The more recent Dead Rising 2 has a similar open-world shtick, only you're dealing with hordes of zombies as motorcyclist Chuck Greene in a Las-Vegas inspired city while trying to protect your daughter from becoming a member of the undead. While dressed in a mankini, if you choose.
There's no info on which one we'll get first, or indeed if this information is accurate but we'll let you know when we hear any confirmation from Microsoft on our continually updated list of free games and don't forget to let us know which games you'd like to see turn up on the Games with Gold scheme.
In the meantime, will you be picking up these two free games? Are they better or worse offerings than we've seen so far? Sound off in the comments.
I would hope so since I wouldn't mind trying Crackdown.
Update: It's confirmed now!
