Gamers are eagerly waiting for Microsoft?s Xbox Games With Gold lineup for August 2016. There are a number of games that are highly demanded by fans, and Microsoft might include them in the next month?s lineup of free games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Some highly anticipated games that have not been released on the service include Halo Wars, Watch Dogs, Forza Horizon 2, Crackdown 2 and Ryse Son of Rome.
There is a chance that Microsoft will include Halo Wars in the Xbox Games With Gold library in August. The company has already launched a beta session for its sequel, and the game has been confirmed for a February release. Microsoft could give away to title in order to boost the ?potential sales of Halo Wars 2.
Crackdown 2 might be the next game Microsoft would want to give away in August as an Xbox Games With Gold title. Crackdown 3 is already under development and due sometime next year, and adding the game to the library next month would certainly support the upcoming title.
Meanwhile, Games With Gold members have been asking for Forza Horizon 2 and Forza Motorsport 5 because Microsoft has yet to give away a game from the franchise. As the company is bringing new Forza entries soon, it would be a wise decision for Microsoft to add any of these titles to their library in August. The matchless racing experience would be a great treat for players, and it will certainly keep them busy throughout the month.
For fans who want some strong AAA titles to be added into the Games With Gold library, Watch Dogs is a great choice. Its sequel, Watch Dogs 2, is already slated for a November release, so it would be interesting to see whether the company will use the original game to fuel the hype.
Skate 3 and Bioshock games including Bioshock 1, 2 and Bioshock Infinite have long been confirmed by the company as upcoming backwards-compatible games, but none of the titles have appeared in the Xbox Games With Gold library yet. All these titles have been in demand for a long time, and there is a chance that Microsoft may give away these games in August with Xbox One backwards compatibility support. Another game, Ryse Sone of Rome, is anticipated by subscribers who failed to purchase the Xbox One launch title.
