September's Free Games With Gold Xbox One, 360 Titles Revealed

Here's what's in store for Xbox Live Gold members next month.

60 Comments

With September approaching, it's nearly time for the next batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Microsoft has announced the four titles that will be available across Xbox One and Xbox 360 through Games With Gold, and there are some quality ones in there.

September starts off with Forza Motorsport 5: Game of the Year Edition, an Xbox One launch game, being free for Gold members. The timing is perhaps a bit odd, with Forza Motorsport 7 launching in early October, but this may be meant as a teaser for that game. The Game of the Year Edition comes with a Top Gear DLC car pack that introduces another 10 vehicles to the game.

Halfway through the month, on September 16, Xbox One owners will also be able to grab Oxenfree. The atmospheric, dialogue-driven adventure game first released early last year, making it the much newer of the two Xbox One games for the month.

On the Xbox 360 side, the first half of September brings Hydro Thunder Hurricane, the water-based racing game. It'll be followed by Battlefield 3 starting on September 16. Both of these games are playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

Most of August's free Games With Gold titles remain available for a short while longer. One of those games, Trials Fusion, will remain free through September 15.

Must be nice. Waiting on Sony to announce their garbage free games for this month. At least last month was good with Just Cause 3 but I'll be very surprised if PS4 goes back to back months with good games.

@titankiller1: Announced.

Both lineups look comparable: a launch title surrounded by some notable smaller indie games.

Forza 5 AND with the bulk of the DLC. What a score! I recently sold my copy to get 6, but I wouldn't mind going back to play the DLC. Awesome!

@angrycreep: Im the other way round. Can't stand the open world horizen series , but love the traditional competitive racing track FORZA. Horizen bores the absolute sht out of me.

Haven't played Forza since Forza 2. Forza 5 will probably get me in the mood again for racing games on Xbox.

I'm actually excited to get Hydro Thunder. When I was 16, I worked at Chick-fil-A in the mall, and we still had one of the few arcades around. I had a friend that worked there, and he would put games on free play for me. The version they had in the arcade had huge speakers in the seats, and you could feel the waves when you were bouncing around. It was a lot of fun. This should be at least good for nostalgic value.

@7tizz: youre right. I don't have an xbone. I own an initial release 2TB xbone s, I just have zero interest, and my friend's and family that visit my place have next to no interest in racing (boat, or vehicle) video game's. and we've delt/deal with enough warfare in real life to deal with even more of it in video game's that we try to get away from such thing's to begin with in.

@budah78: nether I, nor any of my family member's have had any Nintendo product's since the gamecube, and ds. the wii may have been an upgrade in hardware, but do to the motion control, it was a severe downgrade in game quality, playability, and length. and the 3ds was hardware theft that the court ordered a fine, and restitution. and a portion of any future sale on said system to go to the 3d feature copyright owner from over a year before the 3ds's development initiation.

@7tizz: mostly r.p.g.'s (fable, final fantasy pre 15), and strategy (planetside, civilization). and maybe some simulator's (dating) , puzzle (clicker heroe's, tumbleblock's), and space based (homeworld, freelancer) game's. and if they ever make a remake, or game like basewar's, a.k.a. cyberstadiem basewar's (95%same as normal baseball, 5% robot's upgrading robot's between game's, and seeing if 1 is out or not at the bases), then maybe that as well.

@7tizz: i'm not just an exclusively x-box fan gamer. i'm a multi platform gamer since 1990 when nobody even heard of Microsoft yet. some game's are best designed for a mouse and keyboard pc/mac setup like civilization, age of empire's, empire earth, homeworld, and eve-online the second geneses, while other's are best played with a controller, like fable, final fantasy 3 to 12, and bioshock. while other's are exlusive to specific system's like basewar's to the n.e.s., halo to x-box's, eve-online the second genesis to pc/mac, and let it die is to the playstation 4.

@brimmul777: It's okay, the cars handle well... but it's missing a lot of content compared to other games... aside from that it's just as good when it comes to the actual racing as any other Forza title.

@brimmul777: It's the worst in the series if you ask me and I've played every single one. Honestly it was THE reason I bought an XB1 at launch and I sold my copy 3 weeks later.

@taker1985: Considering I have Horizon 2 and 3, 6 Apex, and Forza 4, that's what I'm hoping happens. I keep seeing large amounts going to 5, but can't use it yet.

Not too shabby. Forza 5 is a very solid game as is Battlefield 3. I don't really know about the other two games but I'll give them a try.

@lilhurk1985187: Wow. Just in the previous 4 months we had these - for free....

Bayonetta

Dragon Age: Origins

Assassin's Creed III

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Grow Up

Watch Dogs

SpeedRunners

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

...plus about 8 others that every gamer may or may not enjoy (it's called personal taste) including Slime Rancher and some Lego games. You want to lighten up mate - stop sitting there moaning like a spoilt child. Did you pout and stamp your feet while you were typing this?

@mpl911:

Bayonetta:Good game

DAO::Great game

Assassins Creed 3: Crap

Star Wars TFU: Crap

Grow up:Indy trash

Watch Dogs: crap

Speed Runners: Indy Trash.

Only 2 of the games in the past 4 months have been good. I would say that this means 4 months of crap minus 2.

@lilhurk1985187: Your opinion is your opinion of course, but did you actually try all those games? I tried Grow Home., which. as you say, is an indie title, but thought it was really good. Also, WatchDogs, although not popular when it came out, I thought was excellent. I certainly passed a good 15 or so hours of my time enjoying it before I started to find it a little repetitive, and for free, you can't really complain about that.

Or perhaps you can.

@lilhurk1985187: 4 out of 4 are good. Problem is, I already own 3 of them. Played Hydro Thunder this morning, and it's classic arcade fun, it plays a lot like the Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast game, so it's pretty nostalgic, if you have memories of that era.

Looking forward to Oxenfree, the only one that I don't already own, seems like a 2D life is strange (which I love)

Wow, Forza 5 is a good entry for gold subscribers into the Forza franchise, and seems like last year with Horizon 1 being GWG to coincide with FH3, they're doing the same here.

Battefield 3 is a multiplayer classic. Forza 5 is a driving classic..it was one of those games that really wowed me with graphics and depth in customization, tracks and cars.

Oxenfree is a great addition too
