Xbox Newsbeat 28 July – 01 August 2014

Action News Xbox One Racing Sports Xbox 360 Microsoft


Time to get the blood pumping and hold out your cups so I can fulfill your thirst for knowledge, it is time for Xbox Newsbeat! Newsbeat is your one stop, all-access shop for all the best news being churned out over at Microsoft HQ (seriously, they are like the Willy Wonka of gaming goodness). This week we have three headlines for your reading pleasure, two for Xbox One and one crossover article that handles both Xbox One and Xbox 360 (back of the line, Windows Phone) so without further adieu, lets beat some news!

August Games with Gold

So lets start off today’s admittedly small helpings with some awesome news. As many of you are aware, Xbox Live Gold subscribers get access to a few free games every month via the Games with Gold Program. The program is available to both Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners, and are usually filled with pretty sweet games. Here are this month’s offerings;

Xbox One:

Crimson Dragon (Available all month, from today)

Strike-Suit Zero: Director’s Cut (Available all month, from today)

Xbox 360:

Motocross Madness (Available from today until August 15th)

Dishonored (Available from August 16th)

You read correctly, Dishonored is available for free! Games for Gold really deliver each month, and is probably the best reason to get an Xbox Live Gold membership (especially if you own both consoles).
