Xbox has just announced the new titles coming to Games With Gold for July 2017. Remember, all four are available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
Coming to Games With Gold on July 1st is Grow Up, a sequel to Grow Home from Ubisoft. In Grow Up, players take on the role of B.U.D., a robot who needs to pick up the pieces of his ship M.O.M., after it crashes into the moon. B.U.D. can grow plants in order to reach the moon. Grow Up originally released last year on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PCs on August 16th. The title will be available for free as part of Games With Gold the entire month of July.
On July 16th, players can download a new title joining the Xbox One library as part of Games With Gold: Runbow. In this independant game, up to nine players race and attack each other to reach the end before anyone else does. As players run amok, the background changes color making some obstacles appear and disappear. Runbow has been released on the Wii U, Windows PCs, and the New Nintendo 3DS as early as 2015. Runbow will be available as a free download as part of Games With Gold until August 15th.
On the Xbox 360 side, starting on July 1st, players can download Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. Developed by newly-independant studio IO Interactive and released in 2010, Kane & Lynch 2 has players controlling Lynch for most of the game while the pair brings their special brand of chaos to the streets of Shanghai. The title also offers cooperative play both online and off, and online competitive play for up to 12 players. Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be available as a free download on Games With Gold until July 15th.
On July 16th, blocky swashbuckling is on the agenda with LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean. Players can play cooperatively offline while sailing through the stories of the first four films in the Pirates saga. Originally released in 2011 for eight different platforms, this LEGO title follows the tried-and-true formula of the older games and acts out the stories with no dialogue and toned-down violence in comparison to the films. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean will be a free download until August 1st.
While we now have four titles to look forward to receiving, don’t forget you still have a few days to claim Dragon Age: Origins before it goes away on July 1st, and WATCH_DOGS will still be around until July 16th.
