Mickey’s Dead Space
It has been quite some time since Xbox Live’s “Games with Gold” service has seen a month as eclectic as this. While I enjoy having a diverse selection of games to pick from, there is likely going to be only one game that speaks to each user while the other three seem like a wash. On the Xbox One side of things, the venerable Forza Horizon series gets some representation with Horizon 2 being up for grabs while Ubisoft’s interesting, yet flawed, For Honor sits alongside it.
For 360 users (and Xbox One via backward compatibility), you’ll be able to nab the conclusion of Visceral’s Dead Space trilogy and get the lackluster follow-up to Warren Spector’s Disney game, Epic Mickey 2. I can’t say I’m particularly interested in any of these games, but everyone is likely to find at least something to entertain them.
You can catch the dates for them below:
- Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox One) – Aug 1 – Aug 31
- For Honor (Xbox One) – Aug 16 – September 15
- Dead Space 3 (Xbox 360) – Aug 1 – Aug 15
- Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two (Xbox 360) – Aug 16 – Aug 31
