Get The September 2020 Xbox Live Free Games With Gold Before They're Gone
The Division is one of next month's freebies. Yes, the first one.
With Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate, you get a number of online benefits and perks, one of them being access to four free games every month. The September 2020 Games with Gold lineup includes two games for Xbox One and two legacy titles that are backward-compatible. The Division--not The Division 2--leads the way on Xbox One and will be followed up by point-and-click adventure game The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. Third-person shooter Armed and Dangerous will also be free until late next month.
The Division will be free all month for Gold subscribers. Though it's a solid game, it's a rather uninspired choice considering much of the fun of the series hinges on online multiplayer, and The Division 2 took its place last year. If you haven't played the original, however, there's fun to be had in the campaign--but you can regularly find it in bargain bins for only a few bucks.
From September 16 to October 15, you can grab The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, a humorous point-and-click adventure game starring four unlikely heroes who set out on an adventure to stop a magical force that has turned the kingdom upside down. It's a rather silly adventure game, seeing as how monsters have been turned into puppies and castles now look like huge dollhouses.
For the first half of the month, the charming Xbox 360 puzzle-platformer de Blob 2 was free to claim, but that offer has unfortunately expired. Zany third-person shooter Armed and Dangerous will be free in the second half of September. Filled with wild guns and spoofs on popular fantasy and science fiction media, Armed and Dangerous doesn't take itself too seriously.
