August is almost here and that means a new list of Xbox Games with Gold will soon be announced. Along with the summer heat we?re also getting plenty of fan speculation about just what new titles will be offered as part of the program.
We?ve assembled some of the leading theories from around the Internet on which games you?ll be getting next month below:
RED DEAD REDEMPTION
The website Bitbag speculates that the action-western Red Dead Redemption, which was planned for inclusion on the July list of Games with Gold, may finally make its appearance on the August list.
SLEEPING DOGS: DEFINITIVE EDITION
Another rumored title that many hope to find on the list of Games with Gold is the Square Enix game Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition. The remastered single-player action-adventure is a prime candidate for inclusion and the rumor-mill seems to agree, with several sites mentioning it as a lock to appear in August.
RYSE: SON OF ROME
One of the exclusive launch titles for the Xbox One may also be getting the Games With Gold treatment, according to Ecumenical News. The third-person hack-and-slash action-adventure Ryse: Son of Rome is yet another one of the games that some expect to make the cut.
BIOSHOCK OR SKATE 3
Bitbag also speculates that two long-rumored backwards compatible titles could be introduced as part of the Games With Gold program. Both a Bioshock Collection and Skate 3 are fan-favorites that would be enthusiastically received. While it would be great to see both of these games added to the August list, it is more likely ? given fan interest ? that if either makes an appearance it would be one or the other.
CP Entertainment points to the fact that since typically Games With Gold offers four new titles each month either one of these games could round out what would be an amazing August line-up.
This list is currently based on the speculation of others, of course, but could give us a bit of insight into what we may be getting when the full list is announced next week. What games would you like to see added to Xbox Games With Gold in August? Let us know in the comments section below.
