With August around the corner, Microsoft has revealed the next quartet of games that’ll be free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, and the first two games are now available to claim one day early: Portal Knights and MX Unleashed. August’s Games with Gold includes the regular offerings of two Xbox One games and two backward-compatible Xbox 360 games that’ll grab the attention of anyone looking to do some down and dirty motorcycle racing or mass destruction on the red planet.
Starting today and all through August on Xbox One, you can grab 2016’s Portal Knights, a survival action role-playing video game, while the more recent Override: Mech City Brawl will allow you to smash big colorful robots from the middle of the month and throughout September. Thanks to backward compatibility, you can kick up some mud with the best motorcross bikes that 2004 had to offer in MX Unleashed, which is also available for free starting today, or you can terraform Mars with explosives in the first Red Faction sequel starting August 16.
You can also grab a holdover from July’s Games With Gold, the arcade-style basketball game Dunk Lords, until August 15.
