UPDATE: The official lineup is different form this leak. Find it right here.
We should, within the next few days, get the official lowdown on next month's Xbox Live Free Games with Gold. We should, for that matter, be hearing about our new PlayStation Plus free games as well, since the PSN store updates on Tuesdays and next Tuesday will be the first day of August. As far as Xbox games go, we may have just seen our free games for next month a few days early. Spanish Xbox site SomosXbox published an article with a promo banner displaying two new Xbox One games, and two new Xbox 360 games.
If this leak turns out to be accurate, Xbox One owners are in for a really great August. After last months' mediocre showing, this should more than make up to the people who've been craving some flagship first-party games. This month's first-party offering is an Xbox 360 backward compatible game, but it's a great one. Keep scrolling to the supposed Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for August:

Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor, a woman named Delilah, is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—your only contact with the world you've left behind. But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the world, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have."

- "While investigating the growing list of serial killers, Agent Thomas concludes that something is twisting the bodies and souls of those that society has left behind. The homeless, addicted and deranged are rising from the city’s underbelly and committing mindless acts of violence. Could there be an unseen connection between the increasing brutality of the latest serial killings and the increasing crime rate? This question is pushed to the forefront after Agent Thomas is framed for the murder of two police officers. Now he must solve the murders to stop the killings, and exonerate himself from the crimes of which he is accused."
