Xbox Games with Gold July: Arcade game madness, plus Virtua Fighter and Splinter Cell

Advertisement

Microsoft seems to be encouraging outdoor activity this month, given the poor selection of free games it’s offered up for Games with Gold in July. Luckily, we have plenty of sporting action to keep us occupied for the next few weeks until August’s Games with Gold are announced.

As ever, in July there will be two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 titles available to download for free from the Xbox Live store – exclusive to XBL Gold subscribers, of course. The first Xbox One game, Android Assault: Cactus, is free to download from July 1st until the end of the month. It’s a cartoonish twin-stick shooter which sees players blast their way through an endless number of alien hordes, presumably to save the human race – or something to that effect. The next Xbox One title is also an arcade game: Death Squared is a co-operative puzzler featuring cute robots and mind-bending 3D mazes. It will be available from July 16th until August 15th.

That’s it for current gen games. Onto the 360 titles, then, the first of which is Virtua Fighter 5, the fifth instalment of possibly the least loved beat em’ up video game series in existence. That’s free from the 1st to the 31st. Halfway through the month comes Splinter Cell: Conviction, a solid if uninspired entry into the Sam Fisher saga. It’s no Double Agent, put it that way.

This is a conspicuously weak lineup from Microsoft, both in terms of the games themselves and how much they are worth (about £55). June’s games were by no means fantastic but put together they were worth well over £100. If you’re quick, however, you can still nab June’s best free game, Smite: Gold Bundle, which will be available until mid-July.

Watch the video below for a quick overview of the kind of gameplay you can expect from July’s Games with Gold titles.
