Xbox’s Larry Hryb has revealed the Games with Gold lineup for September 2017. As always there are two Xbox One games available throughout the month, and two Xbox 360 backward compatible games. September brings us a mix of indie and AAA games in the form of Forza Motorsport 5, Oxenfree, Battlefield 3, and Hydro Thunder Hurricane.
Forza Motorsport 5 headlines the games on Xbox One and is available to download for free with a Gold membership starting on September 1 and lasting through the entire month. On September 16, Night School Studios’ supernatural graphic adventure Oxenfree will be available. Oxenfree flew under the radar of a lot of people so definitely pick it up if you have the chance.
Over on Xbox 360, Hydro Thunder Hurricane starts off the month of September. It is a boat racing game published by Microsoft Studios. The heavy-hitter on Xbox 360 next month is Battlefield 3, which comes to the Games with Gold program in the middle of the month on September 16.
If you don’t already own these games, it’s a pretty solid Games with Gold lineup with Forza Motorsport 5 and Battlefield 3. Oxenfree is another fantastic title that players should enjoy if they like decision-based narrative adventures. I’m not sure how appealing Hydro Thunder Hurricane will be to a majority of players, but it’s free if you want to try it out.
