The Games with Gold line-up of free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games is about to be refreshed for July 2020.
The next wave of Games with Gold releases will be available to download from July 1, 2020.
The new games include WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship on Xbox One, which will be available for the entire month of July.
This will be accompanied by open-world action game Saints Row 2 on Xbox 360, which is available until July 16.
Xbox 360 platform game Juju and Xbox One basketball release Dunk Lords will join the service later this month.
With the Games with Gold line-up about to be refreshed by Microsoft, subscribers only have a few hours left to download the current batch of free games.
This includes Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse on Xbox One, and Sine Mora on Xbox 360.
They’re not the highest profile Games with Gold releases, but both games are enjoyable in their own right, and well worth a download.
Until Dunk Lords reviews drop, WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship is arguably the pick of the bunch in July 2020.
Featuring dynamic weather and improved physics, the rally racing game has a 76% score on Metacritic.
“Play the most complete and authentic WRC simulation yet,” reads the official description.
“Featuring a dynamic weather system with true-to-life physics, preparation and management before each stage are vital as you compete in the sun, rain, and snow. With 50 teams, 14 rallies, and over 100 stages, WRC 8 has the deepest content ever available in an off-road racing title.”
Dunk Lords is one of the more intriguing Games with Gold releases in July 2020. The two-on-two basketball game is clearly inspired by NBA Jam, only with more emphasis on fighting.
“You can ball… but can you fight?” reads the Dunk Lords description. “Find out in this fantastic two-on-two basketball beat ‘em up.
“Choose from 20 of the baddest ballers around, each with special attacks and insane abilities, and battle it out on 15 unique courts.
“Play powered-up pickup games with four friends or guide your young star, Slice, to the very top in Story Mode. Make sure not to miss out on this new-to-Xbox title!”
Saints Row 2 is another decent game with something of a cult following among fans. It’s similar to GTA in style, only a little more over-the-top.
