Xbox Games with Gold offers Dishonored, Strike Suit Zero, and more this August
The August Xbox Games with Gold have been revealed and it’s quite a great selection of titles, but some are definitely better than others. Xbox One Gold members will be able to get Crimson Dragon and Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut throughout the entire month of August completely free. Xbox 360 owners also benefit from two free games if they happen to own a Gold membership. From August 1st until August 15th they can pick up Motocross Madness, and starting with August 16th and up until the end of the month they’re in for a real treat with Arkane Studios’ Dishonored. I’m pretty sure that a lot of Xbox One owners will fire up their old Xbox 360’s next month just to get on the free steampunk action. You will find a short description for each game below.
Crimson Dragon: “Several generations have passed since the human colonists of Planet Draco lost contact with Earth. Now they face the return of an old threat, a colossal destroyer known as the White Phantom. In “Crimson Dragon,” control your dragon and fight off the violent enemy life forms. Teach your dragon new skills, and train it to face combat in harder missions.”
Strike Suit Zero Director’s Cut: “In the year 2299, an interstellar war rages. Take control of the Strike Suit – a craft with the ability to transform into a hulking suit of space armor – in a bid to save Earth from destruction. Immerse yourself in massive fleet battles where your dogfighting skills will directly affect the fate of the cosmos. The Director’s Cut is the definitive version of the game featuring a next-gen graphical overhaul, restructured campaign and additional content – including the Heroes of the Fleet campaign.”
Motocross Madness: “Take your bike freeriding across massive environments, from the deserts of Egypt to the snows of Iceland. Drift, trick and turbo boost your way across 9 expansive offroad tracks in single player events, ghost challenges and 8-player multiplayer races. Combine stats with your friends in Bike Club to unlock rewards then compete across all events to reach the top of your club.”
Dishonored: “An immersive first-person action game that casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. With Dishonored’s flexible combat system, creatively eliminate your targets as you combine the supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.”

Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, and BattleBlock Theater will remain free for Gold members until the end of the month.
