As long as you don’t mind older games, there’s a little bit of everything in September’s Games With Gold offering.
With Forza Motorsport 7 out in October, Xbox is looking to get more people in on the franchise with the fifth entry in the Motorsport series being free to Gold subscribers in September. As an Xbox One launch title, the game is a little sparse compared to 2015’s Motorsport 6, but it’s still a good entry point. Oxenfree is also a neat horror-lite title that released back in early 2016. I recommend beating it in one seating if you have the time one afternoon.
- Forza Motorsport 5: Racing Game of the Year Edition (available September 1-30)
- Oxenfree (available September 16 – October 15)
September’s 360 titles are both pretty dated, but they still might have a little something to offer folks who missed them the first time around. Battlefield 3 is decidely scaled back from its next gen sequels, but some of its multiplayer maps are incredible – just watch out for its trainwreck campaign. Hydro Thunder Hurricane is worth goofing around with as a lighthearted couch competitive experience.
Both Xbox 360 games will be fully playable on Xbox One via the backwards compatibility program. If you’ve yet to download August’s free games, be sure to pick them up before they’re gone.
