Microsoft has revealed its free games for August as part of the ongoing Games with Gold initiative for Xbox Live Gold members. The latest giveaway consists of two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games, with the latter pair also available on Microsoft's current home console via the magic of Backwards Compatibility.
With World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) Summerslam event just around corner on 21 August, Xbox One owners who are partial to a slice of pro-wres action will be able to re-create the event's biggest match-ups in WWE 2K16. 2K Games' 2015 title will be available to download from 16 August until 15 September.
For non-wrestling fans, Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate rounds out the Xbox One line-up – arriving on 1 August and up for grabs until 31 August. In a press release, Omega Force's hack-and-slash game is described as a blend of "the long-running and beloved Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises, [featuring] over 120 playable characters and a free, open mix-and-match party system, you'll be able to carve up your foes any way you please".
The Xbox 360 games on offer are the influential indie Spelunky, and Beyond Good and Evil HD – a remastered version of Ubisoft's much-loved 2003 cult classic. Microsoft expanded on the two games in a blog post:
"On Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backward compatibility, start the month by diving underground in Spelunky. The hit indie platformer allows you to blast through rock to find your shortcuts and challenges you to avoid traps, find loot, and defeat your enemies. With each level being procedurally generated, the experience is new and different every time. Which begs the question, which way will you reach the end and find fantastic treasure?
Last by not least, on August 16, get ready for the critically acclaimed, beloved Beyond Good & Evil HD. Play as Jade, an investigative reporter trying to uncover a sinister government conspiracy, armed with her camera, her wits, and a retractable battle staff. Get help from your uncle Pey'j, a pig, to save the planet!"
Beyond Good and Evil HD is available from 16-31 August, while Spelunky is free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers from 1 August until 15 August.
