Microsoft has released its game lineup for next month’s ‘Games with Gold.’ The September 2017 list features Forza Motorsport 5 chief among the rest, bringing the popular racing game to Xbox owners with an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Though the Forza racing game is only available for Xbox One owners, the list also includes titles for Xbox 360 owners. The total value of this bundle is $94+, according to Microsoft.
Much like Sony’s monthly PlayStation Plus game releases, Microsoft’s Games with Gold is a monthly promotion that gives Xbox Live Gold subscribers free games as an extra perk for subscribing to the service. The games are available for a limited duration typically ranging between two weeks and one month, and can be downloaded sans cost at any point during that period.
Forza Motorsport 5 is being offered as the Racing Game of the Year Edition, a title that would ordinarily cost you $39.99 USD if you bought it new through normal channels. The game will be available to download for free starting on September 1 and remaining available the entire month. Only on Xbox One.
Joining that is Battlefield 3 for both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. The game, which is a bit dated at this point, now retails for $19.99 USD, though of course it is free through this program. The game will be available to download from September 16 to September 30.
Less notable but no less welcomed are the games Hydro Thunder Hurricane and Oxenfree. The first of the two is described as an arcade boat racing game that features, among other things, rocket-powered speedboats. Oxenfree, meanwhile, is a ‘teen supernatural thriller’ involving a portal to paranormal forces.
