Here are your Xbox Games with Gold for September
A new month is almost here, and that means a new batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Look, I’m just going to be honest: I know nothing about the two Xbox One games we’ll be getting, so I’m just going to let the Xbox Wire blog post on this Games for Gold line-up explain them to you.
In a world ravaged by war and dominated by magic, you are the last hope for the Empire of Man. Choose your hero among four different character classes and prepare for legendary battles with up to four friends against the all-powerful Chaos hordes in this action role-playing game.
In this action-adventure title based on the rich indigenous culture of the Tarahumara people, fight back against a strange foulness that is corrupting their land. As the local shaman, Sukurúame, draw upon the power of the demigods, solve puzzles, and fight hand-to-hand in environments inspired by real Sierra locations.
Warhammer: Chaosbane will be available from 9/1 through 9/30, while Mulaka from 9/16 through 10/15.
The two free Xbox 360 titles we’ll be getting I’m far more familiar with. First up from 9/1 through 9/15 is Zone of the Enders: HD Collection, the first time Hideo Kojima’s cult classic sci-fi mecha games—Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner—got improvements over the original PlayStation 2 releases. While the games certainly aren’t for everyone, if you’re getting them for free anyhow, you should really give at least one of them a try.
The other Xbox 360 title, available from 9/16 through 9/30, offers up my favorite fighting game of all time: Samurai Shodown II. While this isn’t my preferred way to play the game at this point, the Xbox 360 port is still an absolutely decent way to play what some consider the pinnacle of SNK’s 2D fighting game era. Seriously, don’t sleep on this game if you like fighters at all.
And remember, unlike Xbox One games, and Xbox 360 releases you get through Games for Gold are yours to keep forever, even if you no longer subscribe to Xbox Live Gold.
