Paying subscribers to Xbox Live can grab four games for “free” in September, two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. At least one of them is a very good game, maybe more!

Microsoft announced September’s offerings today in a blog post. The two Xbox One titles are:

  • Earthlock: Festival of Magic - A Kickstarted turn-based RPG that you can learn more about here.
  • Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China - The first of a trilogy of Assassin’s Creed console sidescrollers that were just ok. We reviewed this one.

The Xbox 360 games, which will also run on Xbox One, are:

  • Forza Horizon - A more casual take on Microsoft’s Forza driving series, though we’re more partial to the game’s sequel. Bear in mind that a third installment is about to hit Xbox One and PC on September 27.
  • Mirror’s Edge - Just a terrific first-person parkour game by EA. The recent sequel got a lukewarm response, but the first game is generally beloved.

Editor-in-Chief. Playing: Destiny 2 (need to get back to Ashen, Spider-Man, RDR2, Iconoclasts, Arkham Origins, Sushi Striker, Samus Returns, AC Odyssey, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint)
