One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in September 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Summer may be ending but the great titles will keep on coming thanks to a solid collection featured in Septemberâ€™s Games with Gold. On Xbox One itâ€™s the complete auto sport experience with Forza Motorsport 5: Racing Game of the Year Edition followed by the supernatural adventure of Oxenfree.
Then on Xbox 360, and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility, the arcade boat racer Hydro Thunder Hurricane splashes down and the iconic multiplayer shooter Battlefield 3 enters the fray for you to add to your ever-growing gaming library.
All games will only be available for a limited time as part of Games with Gold, so get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action.
