Calico, Saints Row 2, and Monaco round out the list
Microsoft announced the four VIDEO GAMES with Gold options for August 2022, and you also know very well what? Its much better than it’s been lately. (A caveat-filled summary, to be certain.) Through the month, Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can nab Calico, ScourgeBringer, Saints Row 2, and Monaco: Whats Yours is Mine at no extra cost.
Can you recognize these games? For once, I knew all of them.
Calico is really a community life sim game devoted to a cat cafe, that is a cute premise. On the other hand, weve got ScourgeBringer, a frantic action roguelite game that Id recommend playing in the event that you arent too burnt from the genre its fun for a little. Because of its balanced tone, Saints Row 2 may be the fan-favorite entry based on who you ask, and Monaco is really a still-pretty-unique co-op heist game thats obtaining a sequel each one of these years later.
When to claim the games in August
- Calico (August 131)
- ScourgeBringer (August 16September 15)
- Saints Row 2 (August 115)
- Monaco: Whats Yours is Mine (August 1631)
Earlier this month, Microsoft said it could stop including Xbox 360 games in its usual Games with Gold rollouts the business has already reached the limit with regards to 360 games to provide out, presumably because of partner interest. Starting in October 2022, Games with Gold will concentrate on Xbox One titles and exclusive savings every month.
Its nice in order to avoid repeats, but I am hoping that is more of a confident shakeup and less of a value reduction. In a few ways, its surprising that Games with Gold remains to be in a post-Game-Pass world. If youre in the habit, keep hoarding these games when you still can.
And when you revisit Saints Row 2, spray a building for me personally, would ya?
