News regarding the Games with Gold August 2020 lineup is expected very soon from Microsoft. The tech giant revealed its plans for July on June 25, meaning we could even get the big update in the coming days. However, it should be noted that unlike Sony, Microsoft doesn’t alway until a specific date to announce its news. So there’s a chance gamers will have to wait for the Xbox Live Gold update until the final week of July.
Microsoft has yet to tease what they have planned and there have been no leaks to confirm what is coming next.
And with so many titles to choose from, it’s almost impossible to predict what Microsoft could be planning.
Until we find out more, Xbox One gamers can still claim the latest Games with Gold titles, including WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship, and Dunk Lords.
WRC 8 will be replaced on August 1 with a new title, followed by Dunk Lords on August 16.
Last year’s GwG lineup included Big Crown: Showdown and Inside, so there’s a chance of a nice mix of indie titles coming our way.
Meanwhile, the classic titles supplied from the Xbox 360 included Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Meet The Robinsons.
While gamers wait to find out what is coming next as part of the Xbox One free games lineup, we already know of another exciting bonus being planned for August.
As confirmed earlier this month by Square Enix, Xbox One gamers will get the chance to play Marvel’s Avengers before it releases in September.
And while there will be more opportunities to join if you pre-order the game, there will still be an open beta held on the Xbox platform.
More details on the upcoming beta can be found below: “August 7-9: PlayStation Advantage Closed BETA: The first BETA weekend will be available for those who have pre-ordered Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation 4. Pre-load will be available on August 6.
“August 14-16: PlayStation Advantage Open BETA & Xbox/PC Closed BETA: The second BETA weekend will be open to the entire PS4 community as part of our PlayStation Advantage partnership.
“Additionally, those of you who have pre-ordered Marvel’s Avengers on Xbox or PC will be able to jump in and play. Pre-load will be available on August 13.
“August 21: Open BETA for All: August 21 – 23 will give all fans across all platforms a chance to jump in and play the Marvel’s Avengers BETA! Pre-load will be available on August 20.
“You will need a Square Enix Members account to participate in the Marvel’s Avengers BETA. We use the Square Enix Members account to validate pre-order codes and content, as well as to deliver post-launch content, like new heroes, new missions, and new regions at no cost.
“We recommend that anyone planning on buying the game go ahead and register their account early, so they’re not caught in potential launch-day delays. In fact, everyone who signs up for an account will receive an exclusive Thor nameplate in the game.”
Just another Xbox Live Gold bonus to look forward during August 2020 on Xbox One.
