We’re days away from the end of July which means it’s time to find out again what games will be free next month on Xbox One and Xbox 360 for Gold subscribers. Last month, we got Grow Up, Runbow, Kane & Lynch 2, and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game. Microsoft won’t be announcing the free titles until the first week of August, but we’re hoping to see one of these Xbox Games With Gold August 2017, if not all, included in the line-up.
Released on Xbox 360 on 2013 and Xbox One on 2014, Diablo III continues the tale from the first two games, taking place in Sanctuary 20 years after it was saved from demonic forces by brave heroes. Players will choose their class then battle across the world either solo or online with friends to defeat the evil that plagues the Sanctuary.
Developed by Tiger & Squid and published by Team17, Beyond Eyes is a modern fairy tale about finding courage and friendship. In it, players will carefully guide a 10-year-old blind girl named Rae as she hunts for her cat Nani, who has wandered away from home and into the surrounding wilderness and villages.
The world is white creatively representing the character’s disability but items can be highlighted to indicate where they are located. Challenges include identifying the sound of how far cars are and whether or not it’s safe to walk across the street.
Alice: Madness Returns
Alice: Madness Returns is the video game sequel to American McGee’s Alice and prequel of Alice: Otherlands. Played from a third-person perspective, it follows the titular character who is suffering from the trauma after her family died in a fire. She was discharged from a psychiatric clinic and now lives in an orphanage with other mentally traumatized orphans under the care of Dr. Angus Bumby. In order to get rid of the trauma, Alice must return to Wonderland, where a new evil force has corrupted it.
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Condemned: Criminal Origins is a survival horror game produced by Monolith Studios and published by SEGA featuring melee combat, and puzzle solving which includes looking for fingerprints and gathering evidence. It follows SCU agent Ethan Thomas as he hunts for a serial killer in the fictional town of Metro while using his instincts and technology as well as fighting the violent inhabitants of the neighborhood.
