August Games with Gold: Crimson Dragon, Dishonored free on Xbox Live Gold

Microsoft confirms next month's selection of free titles

Microsoft have confirmed the four games that will be made available for free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in August.

Xbox One players will be able to download Crimson Dragon, the spiritual successor to the Pazer Dragoon series, and Space Suit Zero: Director's Cut, an ID@Xbox space sim. Both games will be available for the entire month, August 1-31.


Xbox 360 players will get dirt bike game Motocross Madness, and the critically acclaimed first-person stealth action game, Dishonored.

Motocross Madness will be available from August 1-15, followed by Dishonored from August 16-31.

Games With Gold was launched on Xbox One in June. A single Gold membership provides owners with access to the free games for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, although the service will differ on the two consoles in one important way. On Xbox 360, users are still granted access to free game downloads even if their subscription lapses, but on Xbox One users are required to maintain their subscription in order to access freely downloaded games.
