Another month has passed and it is already time for another wave of free games for Xbox Live Gold members. Just as announced, the first two titles of the August Games with Gold are now available to grab, with them being the popular racer Forza Horizon 2 for the Xbox One and EA's co-op action horror experience Dead Space 3 for the Xbox 360.
Note that Xbox One owners can also claim and play Dead Space 3 natively thanks to backward compatibility. Here are the store links to directly claim the games:
A world of beauty and freedom awaits in Forza Horizon 2! Explore a beautiful open world with dynamic day, night and spectacular weather effects in stunning 1080p. Drive 200+ cars in epic road trips through a massive, wide-open world of freedom. Action-packed driving gameplay rewards you for showing off your style as well as your skill.
The Forza Horizon 2 Standard Edition includes the full game of Forza Horizon 2, the official Forza Hub app for Xbox One, and the Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack, which features 10 specially tuned and liveried cars, including the 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia, the 2015 Lamborghini Hurácan and the 2013 McLaren P1™
Dead Space 3 brings Isaac Clarke and merciless soldier John Carver on a journey across space to discover the source of the Necromorph outbreak. Crash-landed on the frozen planet of Tau Volantis, Isaac must comb the harsh environment for raw materials and scavenged parts. The ice planet holds the key to ending the Necromorph plague, but first Isaac must overcome avalanches, treacherous ice-climbs, and the violent wilderness. Facing evolved enemies and the brutal elements, Isaac can choose to team up, not only for his own survival, but for that of mankind’s. Play together with a friend or alone as Isaac Clarke using the seamless drop in, drop out co-op functionality.
Those that missed out on the previous Games with Gold promotion have until August 15 to claim Death Squared for the Xbox One, which is slated to be replaced by the Ubisoft fighting game For Honor.
Lastly, keep in mind that only claimed Xbox 360 games will remain playable even if the Gold subscription is discontinued, while claimed Xbox One games still need an active subscription to play.
