Microsoft has revealed Games With Gold's free games for September 2021 that all Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X will get next month. Like previous months, September's lineup includes four games, and in this case, two of these games are Xbox One games while the other two are Xbox 360 games. While PlayStation Plus has been offering PS5 games since the release of the console, Microsoft continues to limit Games With Gold to Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the original Xbox. When this will change, remains to be seen.
For September, all Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be treated to the following four games: Warhammer: Chaosbane, Mulaka, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, and Samurai Showdown II. According to Microsoft, the four games represent $100 in value, but this is assuming you're paying the maximum price for each game. In addition to $100 in value, the foursome of games bring with them 4,000 Gamerscore points.
