July’s Xbox Games with Gold Selections Revealed


Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, announced the July Xbox Games with Gold offerings on his blog today.

Xbox 360 owners will be able to download Gotham City Impostors  for free for the first half of the month. Starting July 16, BattleBlock Theater  will be available until the end of the month.

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood  will remain free for Xbox One owners throughout the rest of June and will still be available in July. The other current free Xbox One game, Halo: Spartan Assaultwill only be available through the end of June. In July it’s being replaced by Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition.

I like both Gotham City Impostors  and BattleBlock Theater  (I don’t care for The Curse of Brotherhood  and I haven’t played Guacamelee), but I can’t help feeling a little cheated by Microsoft. PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting Towerfall Ascension, Strider, Dead Space 3, Vessel, Muramasa Rebirth, and Doki-Doki Universe  (Europe is getting Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes  on the Vita) in July, which makes me happy as someone who has access to both of Sony’s latest consoles, but I wish Microsoft would make my Gold membership feel more worthwhile sometimes.
