Microsoft has announced the four games with gold that’ll be available to its Xbox Live Gold members in August 2018, which are worth more than $119 in value and 4000 in gamerscore.
Both Xbox 360 and Xbox One users will gain access to two titles each to play for free as part of the ‘Games with Gold’ programme.
However, Xbox One users stand to gain more as they’ll not only be able to play the games being released for their console but also games for Xbox 360 — courtesy backward compatibility.

- Dead Space 3 ($19.99; Xbox 360 with Backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
- Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two ($19.99; Xbox 360 with Backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
