Xbox Games with Gold for August 1st

By Alan Ng - Jul 25, 2014

While PS4 and PS3 owners are bracing themselves for the highly anticipated PS Plus August 2014 update, it is almost that time again for Xbox One and Xbox 360 users to get excited for the incoming Xbox Games with Gold August 2014 update.

Microsoft hasn’t announced the list yet, but we know we could be hours away from the announcement, especially if we go on previous trends for the month before. Microsoft announced the Xbox Games with Gold July update on June 26, so some smart gamers out there are now predicting that we’ll see the Xbox One Games with Gold August update announced on the same day, exactly one month later.

As for the contenders, there seems to be some momentum suggesting that Rayman Legends could be one of the free games that is going to be offered by Microsoft. The colorful game from Ubisoft would be a big hit in our eyes but at this moment, they are mere rumors without any substance.

Another game that has been mentioned is Zoo Tycoon on Xbox One, a game that released in November 2013 but could be another game that users appreciate in terms of offering something different compared to Guacamelee for July’s update.

When the news is finally announced, it should go live on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire website so you may want to bookmark it now and keep checking throughout the day.

What are you expecting to see for the August update on Xbox One and Xbox 360? Were you actually happy with Guacamelee, or disappointed? Let us know if you would be happy if Rayman Legends and Zoo Tycoon were two games that were included on the list.
