September's Xbox Live Games With Gold Include Original Mirror's Edge And New RPG

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.
