Xbox Live Gold members are in for a treat in August. As usual, the Games with Gold program brings four new free games to the table. Let’s dive in and see what these new games are.

Play Slime Rancher for free

Xbox Live Gold members can play Slime Rancher for free on the Xbox One from August 1 until August 31.

Slime Rancher challenges you to become a farmer on a strange planet. As a player, you’ll take on the role of Beatrix LeBeau and wrangle slimes.

In this first-person sandbox experience, each day brings new challenges. Your task is to gather a fortune in the business of slime ranching. Here’s how a typical day might look like:

  1. You wake at the crack of dawn to feed the slimes. They are grumpy, some of them are vegetarian other are not. If you don’t feed them on time, they get jumpy and you’ll have a hard time containing them.
  2. Explore the untamed wilds of the Far, Far Range. You’ll discover new types of crops and weird slimes. Careful though! There are feral slimes out there ready to get you.
