August Games with Gold brings Portal Knights, Red Faction II, and more

Today, Microsoft announced the August 2020 Games with Gold, giving Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers a look at what games will be heading their way for free next month.

The two waves of upcoming freebies will include the usual four titles that are split between the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 duo are also part of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility, program, offering native play on the more modern console.

Here are the announced titles and their arrival dates:

Portal Knights (Xbox One: August 1 - 31)

Prove yourself a Portal Knight by levelling up your character, crafting epic weapons, and vanquishing foes in real-time in this cooperative, 3D sandbox action RPG. Explore dozens of randomly-generated islands! Build almost anything! In a world torn apart by the Fracture and terrorized by the Hollow King, you and your friends are its only hope!

Override: Mech City Brawl (Xbox One: August 16 - September 15)

No gears, no glory! Control gigantic robots and duke it out across fantastic cityscapes in this 3D mech-based brawler! Epic and explosive battles await with distinctive mechs in local and online versus mode, party co-op with two to four players, and a single-player campaign.

MX Unleashed (Xbox 360 and Xbox One: August 1 - 15)

Rainbow Studios returns to its heritage to bring the definitive next-generation off-road game to life. Featuring enormous free world environments and an extensive racing career mode, MX Unleashed is one big off-road playground. If you want more intense action, battle it out with a monster truck, helicopter, or bi-plane!

Red Faction II (Xbox 360 and Xbox One: August 16 - 31)

Twenty-second century Earth. Five years after the rebellion on Mars. For the last 15 years, Sopot, the corrupt dictator, has oppressed the people of the Commonwealth. His relentless pursuit of unification with the neighboring United Republic has left the country soaked in unnecessary bloodshed and poverty.

Defend your country as Alias, a demolitions expert, with the help of your five squad members, each specializing in their own method of destruction. Fight through diverse levels using vehicles, an arsenal of specialized weapons and massive explosives in your rampage to overthrow the government.

Some of the current July Games with Gold offers still have some time before expiring, with WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship and Dunk Lords available for Xbox One owners while Juju can be claimed by Xbox 360 players.
