Now Playing: Xbox Games With Gold For July 1-15 Live

July is officially upon us, which means a couple of new Games with Gold are now available to download. Xbox Live Gold subscribers can grab two new free titles for Xbox One and Xbox 360, with another pair of freebies set to arrive partway through the month.

On the current-gen console, Gold members can download the fast-paced twin-stick shooter Assault Android Cactus at no charge until July 31. 360 owners, meanwhile, can grab Sega's classic fighting game, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, for free until July 15. The latter is also playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.

In addition to those titles, players will be able to grab two more titles for free beginning July 16. On the Xbox One side, Gold members will be able to get the colorful puzzle game Death Squared for free until August 15, while Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction will be available to download on Xbox 360 through the end of July. Like Virtua Fighter, the latter is also backwards compatible with Xbox One. You can see the full list of July's free Games with Gold below.

On top of this month's freebies, Gold members still have a few more days to claim a holdover from June's Games with Gold lineup. The Smite Gold Bundle is available to download for free until July 15. The bundle includes an assortment of items for the free-to-play game, including additional gods, skins, and announcer packs.

Let's just face it: The GWG titles for the Xbox 360 have just sucked ever since M$ mandated that they be compatible with the XB1!!

this is the crappiest GWG I've seen so far. For being the underdog Microsoft needs to shine in this area...

Seems almost all the news on Gamespot these days are about Fortnight, or the free games for the month on PNS and XBL. Has something happened behind the scenes or just lazy?

@Rayzakk: I think everyone ran for lives and found a better job somewhere else and they are VERY understaffed

I think this month looks pretty decent. The only one of these I probably won't like judging by gameplay videos is Death Squared.
