After releasing Big Crown Showdown and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night as some of the gifts for Xbox Live Gold subscribers last month, the next set of games to be released for free under the Games With Gold promotion have now been announced by Microsoft. Xbox 360 owners will be treated to Torchlight and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. If you own an Xbox One, then you will be able to download the gritty action shooter that is Gears of War 4, as well as the celebrated racing simulator that is Forza Motorsport 6.
As with the previous Games With Gold updates, these new games will be available on Games With Gold from August 1st and 16th, and will be on promotion until the dates stated in the trailer below. As an added bonus, the Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One through Backward Compatibility. You will be able to access them completely free of charge, as long as your Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Games Pass Ultimate subscription is active.
