Xbox Live Games with Gold July 2015

Posted June 26, 2015 by Sean Capri in Video Games

On the heels of the well-received news of backwards compatibility coming to Xbox One, Major Nelson has announced July’s free Games with Gold titles. And no, we’re not playing pool any longer.

Xbox One

Starting July 1, Xbox Live Gold members can download launch title Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and two weeks later, So Many Me will be available as a free download from July 16th to August 15th. You may recall Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag ranked number six on our Top 10 Games of 2013. Interestingly, this comes on the two-year anniversary of the Games with Gold program which launched with Assassin’s Creed 2 as one of the two offerings.

Xbox 360

July’s two Xbox 360 Games with Gold are both monstrously violent and feature hordes of monsters. Plants vs. Zombies, the weaponization of salad ingredients slaughtering waves of undead, will be free until July 15. The gore continues on July 16 with Gears of War 3 and will be free until July 31st.

Gears of War 3 rounded out our Top 20 “Must Play” Games of the Generation and is particularly exciting as an Xbox 360 download that will surely be backwards compatible starting this holiday season. Be sure to queue up these free last-gen games – they may just wind up on your Xbox One.
