Xbox Live Games with Gold for July 2016 Offers Two Brand New Games

by Kyle Hanson


Earlier today we got a peak at what games would be included as part of Xbox Live Games with Gold for July 2016. Now, Microsoft has released the full list, with four titles spread evenly across Xbox One and Xbox 360. This is one of the rare months where Xbox One gamers get a brand new title for free, in fact, they’re getting two, so keep reading to see the full list.

On Xbox One, starting July 1st and running until the 31st, Xbox Live members can pick up The Banner Saga 2 for free. Following that will be the previously announced Tumblestone, a brand new indie title that is also available on PS4, Wii U, and PC. That game will remain free until August 15th.

On the Xbox 360, which continues to release games that are also backwards compatible on the Xbox One, players will receive Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and TRON: Evolution. Rainbow Six will be free starting July 1st and going until the 15th. TRON will then take its place and remain free until July 31st.

Interestingly, these all fit perfectly with the previously discussed leak from NeoGAF. It seems that someone has some inside info that they are not afraid to share with the public. It should be interesting to see if the Xbox Live Games with Gold titles for August 2016 get leaked as well.

Overall this looks like a decent month for Xbox Live Games with Gold. The Banner Saga 2 and Tumblestone are both essentially free at launch, which is really great stuff for fans. Free stuff is always great, but it remains to be seen if this selection of games will beat out Sony’s for their PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection. Keep an eye out for our monthly matchup between the two services, once they have both been revealed.
