Your Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup for the month of August has been revealed, and hot damn, this is the best month of free games we've seen on Xbox or PlayStation in a very long time. Leading the charge on Xbox One is Forza Horizon 2 and For Honor and, honestly, we can't think of two heavier-hitting headliners than those! You guys have a great month of gaming ahead of you!
The backward compatible titles are just as great, with Dead Space 3 headlining next month. Most Dead Space faithful have completed the first two games, while the third was critically less successful. It is still worth playing though. Here's the full lineup, with brief breakdowns of each game from the Xbox Wire:
