Xbox Games With Gold - August 2017

Microsoft has announced the Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup for August 2017.

Microsoft have announced another decent lineup games coming to Games with Gold in August. From August 1st you can pick up the sandbox slime sucking adventure, Slime Rancher on Xbox One. The game has been a big hit in Steam Early Access, and has already sold north of 800,000 copies on PC.

Coming to the 360 on the same day is the original Bayonetta. PlatinumGames’ masterpiece is getting on a bit now – and its story and aesthetics might not be to everyone’s taste – but the game remains, well, a masterpiece.


From August 15th, Xbox Live Gold Subscribers can also get Trials Fusion on Xbox One, and Red Faction: Armageddon on Xbox 360. Both 360 titles are backward compatible and playable on Xbox One.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
