Free Games for August 2020
With August just around the corner you may be asking yourself, what free games will I be able to get my paws on this month for PC, Xbox and PlayStation? Have no fear, my friend; I have you covered.
Xbox - Games with Gold
This month for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 as part of Games with Gold you will be able to download:
Portal Knights | Available for Xbox One between the 01st August and 15th August
Released in 2017, Portal Knights is a sandbox game in which you need to explore, build and fight your way to victory against hordes of monsters. To help you in your quest, there is also an RPG style development system and the ability to build tools, weapons and buildings to help ensure your survival against all the things out to get you.
Override: Mech City Brawl | Available on Xbox One between the 16th August and 15th September
Released in 2018, Override: Mech City Brawl is a 3D mech brawler that comes complete with both a single-player campaign and online multiplayer. What makes this game an exciting choice is although there is a 4-player co-op, instead of working with three friends, you all control a separate part of the same mech while plaything together.
MX Unleashed | Available for Xbox One and the Xbox 360 between the 01st August and 15th August
Released in 2018, MX Unleashed is said to "bring the definitive next-generation off-road game to life. Featuring enormous free world environments and an extensive racing career mode, MX Unleashed is one big off-road playground."
Red Faction II | Available for Xbox One and the Xbox 360 between the16th August and 31st August
Released in 2002, Red Faction II is a first-person shooter in which you take control of the protagonist Alias and set out on a covert operation to reclaim super-soldier research in the name of the Republic of the Commonwealth.
All of the games are included as part of this month’s Games with Gold. And can be downloaded by anyone with an active Xbox Gold (or higher) subscription.
PlayStation - PS Plus
For August, for the PlayStation 4, as part of an active PS Plus subscription you will be able to download:
Releasing on the 6th of August this year (that's right, you can download it on day one). Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockdown is a massive online multiplayer that sees 60 people compete. Whether it be puzzles, races or other party games, the insanity is real. The chaos is ever escalating. And just like Highlander, in the end, there can be only one (victor).
Released earlier this year (March for the PS4 and April for Xbox and PC), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered is a stand-alone campaign that does what it says on the tin, and remasters the original Modern Warfare 2 campaign experience from 2009.
Call of Duty is available to download right now, with Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout been released to download on the 06th of August.
In addition to the Xbox and PlayStation games, this month, the Epic store will be giving away:
Released in 2011, Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP is an indie game in which you must traverse a mysterious realm using your sword to battle enemies and a magical practice known as sworcery, to help you solve puzzles.
Released in 2015, Barony has been described as "the premier first-person roguelike RPG with cooperative play. Cryptic items, brutal traps and devious monsters, like those found in classic roguelikes and CRPGs, await you. Conquer the dungeon alone, or gather a perfect party in co-op with iconic and exotic RPG classes."
Both will be available to download immediately and will be available to download until the 06th of August. With more free games yet to be announced for the rest of the month.
