Spelunky, WWE 2K16 Among Xbox Games With Gold Lineup For August 2016


Spelunky, WWE 2K16 and Koei Tecmo hack-‘n’-slash title Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate are among the titles included in Xbox Games With Gold for August, 2016, Microsoft has announced.

Split across Xbox One and Xbox 360, it should be noted that all four games will be playable on Microsoft’s current-gen system thanks to the hardware’s backwards compatibility feature.

And so, from Monday, August 1, Xbox Live Gold members will gain access to Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, the latest installment in Koei’s ever-popular Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors crossover. Meanwhile, on Xbox 360, timeless dungeon-crawler Spelunky – which has players burrow through procedurally generated tombs and caverns for plundered loot – will be available up until August 15, when it’ll be replaced on the Games With Gold roster by Beyond Good & Evil HD. It’ll be free to download through August 31.

Finally, WWE 2K16 will pummel its way onto the digital selection alongside Beyond Good & Evil HD on August 16, offering fans ample time to catch up on last year’s installment before the arrival of WWE 2K17 in October.

So, there you have it; Microsoft’s Xbox Games With Gold have been revealed for August, 2016. But what are your initial impressions of the lineup?
