Microsoft’s revealed what games Xbox Live Gold owners will get access to next month. As a bonus, it’s been juuust long enough for someone to convince themselves Beyond Good & Evil 2 is still in development.


Remember, though Microsoft advertises these as “free” games, you need an active Xbox Live Gold subscription to play them. If the subscription lapses, you can still play games you’ve already downloaded. If you’re playing on Xbox One, you also get access to the Xbox 360 games, thanks to backwards compatibility.

Here’s the full lineup for next month:

Xbox One

  • Warriors Orochi Ultimate 3 (August 1-31)
  • WWE 2K16 (August 16-September 15)

Xbox 360

  • Spelunky (August 1-15)
  • Beyond Good & Evil HD (August 16-31)

For those who haven’t had the pleasure of already doing so, I highly encourage you to play Beyond Good & Evil when it drops.

It might have been labeled as an “XBLA” game, but it is anything BUT an afterthought of a game. One of the greatest action-adventure games of all time. I just played the game for the first time last month, and was absolutely blown away by it.

Game’s only about 12 hours. Sit down and play through it the week it drops!
