Xbox Live's August Games With Gold Marches Forward With For Honor

Forza Horizon 2's 10th-anniversary edition and Dead Space 2 are also coming.


It's that time of the month, folks! Microsoft has unveiled the lineup for August and it more than makes up for the lackluster list of games given to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in July.

Next month, Gold players will be able to download  Forza Horizon 2: 10th Anniversary Edition and For Honor standard edition for Xbox One. The full lineup and dates are below:

  • Forza Horizon 2: 10th Anniversary Edition (Xbox One - $19.99 ERP): August 1 - August 31
  • For Honor Standard Edition (Xbox One - $59.99 ERP): August 16 - September 15
  • Dead Space 3 (Xbox 360 - $19.99 ERP): August 1 - August 15
  • Epic Mickey 2 (Xbox 360 - $19.99 ERP): August 16 - August 31

For Honor is an incredibly solid grab right now with the E3-revealed Marching Fire expansion coming later this year. It will require a purchase or the season pass, but it brings a handful of new factions and a new game mode to a game that has progressively gotten stronger over time.

Don't forget to comb over the list of games for July's Games With Gold so you can grab the titles still available. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
