Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metro: Last Light Coming To Xbox Games With Gold For August


As the month of July begins to wind down to a close, Xbox spokesperson Major Nelson has taken to his official blog to unveil the four titles making their way onto Games with Gold for the month of August.

For Xbox One, members will be able to download Hideo Kojima’s acclaimed prequel Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes beginning August 1 – what better way to prepare for The Phantom Pain‘s release, after all? – while How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition will become available on August 16 for free download, with the zombie title remaining on the storefront right up until September 15.


On the other hand, Xbox 360 owners are getting a double helping of 4A Games’ beloved, jet-black Metro series. First up is Metro 2033, a dark and grimy first-person shooter that takes place in the fallout of a nuclear attack. It’ll be available to Xbox Live Gold Members from August 1 until August 15. The following day will herald the addition of its acclaimed sequel, Metro: Last Light, which will occupy Xbox 360 owners with its compelling story and supernatural tenets right up until August 31.

Based on novels by Russian author Dmitry Glukhovsky, the Metro series is a stellar addition to Xbox Live’s Games With Gold promotion, and we’d highly recommend it to fans of the post-apocalyptic genre on the hunt for a meaty story. For more information relating to the original pricing of the games and their studios, head on over to Major Nelson’s official blog post.
