The August 2019 Games with Gold have just been revealed by Xbox’s Major Nelson, and they include the first-party titles Gears of War 4 and Forza Motorsport 6. Gears of War 4 will be free to grab on August 1 along with the Xbox 360 game Torchlight, and this is a well-timed promotion as Gears 5 will be released on Xbox One on September 10. 

As for Forza Motorsport 6, it will be available on August 16 with the Xbox 360 game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. We expect the 2015 racing game to reach end of support later this Fall. Forza games usually disappear from the Microsoft Store after four years, and that’s what happened last year with Forza Horizon 2 which was one of the Games with gold for August 2018.

Overall, these four games represent 6200 in gamerscore and $95 in value, which is more than what we had with July’s Games with Gold. As a reminder, you have until tomorrow, July 31 to grab Inside and Meet the Robinsons for free with your Xbox Live Gold subscription.
