Paying subscribers to Xbox Live can grab four games for “free” in September, two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. At least one of them is a very good game, maybe more!
Microsoft announced September’s offerings today in a blog post. The two Xbox One titles are:
- Earthlock: Festival of Magic – A Kickstarted turn-based RPG that you can learn more about here.
- Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China – The first of a trilogy of Assassin’s Creed console sidescrollers that were just OK. We reviewed this one.
The Xbox 360 games, which will also run on Xbox One, are:
- Forza Horizon – A more casual take on Microsoft’s Forza driving series, though we’re more partial to the game’s sequel. Bear in mind that a third instalment is about to hit Xbox One and PC on September 27.
- Mirror’s Edge – Just a terrific first-person parkour game by EA. The recent sequel got a lukewarm response, but the first game is generally beloved.
