Now Playing: Free Xbox One And Xbox 360 Games With Gold For July 2019 Out Now

The start of the new month is always an exciting time for Xbox Live Gold members, as a new batch of Xbox One and Xbox 360 Games with Gold will be free to claim and add to your library. July's second batch of games are now available, along with one game that's available the entire month. Here's what's on deck for Gold members in July:

First up is Inside, Playdead's critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer and follow-up to Limbo. Inside features a creepy, mysterious environment where you control an unarmed boy as he makes his way through a strange facility. The setting is dark and largely monochromatic and noise is minimal, but Inside's ending is one you won't soon forget. It's available to claim now on Xbox One.

Then there's Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which initially released in 1997. Considered one of the best 2D action side-scrollers of all time, Symphony of the Night is a cult classic and a must-play, especially if you've been enjoying the newly released Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Thanks to backward compatibility, you can play Symphony of the Night on both Xbox One and Xbox 360. [Update: Castlevania is no longer available as of July 15.]

Starting in mid-July, two more games will become available. The first is Meet the Robinsons, which is based on the animated film of the same name. You'll play as Wilbur Robinson, who's in the midst of some time travel chaos that requires him to track down a villain called the Bowler Hat Guy. The action-adventure game includes 40 missions and six different environments in which Wilbur must solve puzzles and battle enemies while armed with various scientific gadgets. You can play Meet the Robinsons on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Big Crown: Showdown is the fourth and final game Gold members can claim in July. Available to play locally or online with up to four players, Big Crown: Showdown pits you and your friends against each other across three wacky medieval worlds and 15 insane courses. The goal is to stay on the course as it constantly shifts and throws hazards your way while also attempting to shove your friends off. Big Crown: Showdown is available to play only on Xbox One.

I have Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, twice for my PS and the import Saturn version I got both CD's. I'll get this again is free and is one of those classic games that never gets old no matter how old the game is. I'm also getting Inside I have never played this game and it looks really good

Played Inside today for the first time, and 100%. Was waiting for the game to be on game pass and this is even better.

It's a shame I already own most of these games but I highly recommend Inside.

I already have SOTN, but if you haven't played it yet, this is a fantastic freebie. Haven't tried INSIDE yet, but I've heard a lot of good things.
