Games with Gold August 2017 revealed for Xbox One and Xbox 360

Microsoft has announced all of the free games coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 as part of Games with Gold next month.

Headlining this month’s selection of freebies is Slime Rancher, a first-person adventure where you can raise your very own adorable farm of slimes. It’s weird, but really fun.

Next up is Trials Fusion, the latest entry in the arcade series. Giving things a futuristic spin, you’ll be shredding across a multitude of different planets on a variety of vehicles.
