Microsoft unveils Games With Gold for August 2018

Microsoft has released its Games with Gold line-up for August, and you know what, it’s a corker of a bundle.
Forza Horizon 2 (10th Anniversary Edition) and For Honor are leading the march for Xbox One this month. With Forza available throughout August and For Honour available for August 16th to September 15th.
Off the back of these strong titles the two Xbox 360 offerings don’t let up on strength either with Dead Space 3 and Disney Epic Mickey 2 (both of which are backward-compatible on Xbox One).
While Dead Space 3 had the unfortunate burden of micro transactions at it’s launch, as a free offering and given it’s much needed patches post launch, it has become a great part of a trilogy and well worth a play.
Epic Mickey 2 is very much more of the same if you liked the first. Plenty of nods to yester year Disney cartoons and movies and lots of collectables. I found the AI in the game to be a little bit flawed, but given the age rating and accessibility, these are minor points.
As always, go to, or your xbox console to download these come 1st August
