Hey, look you guys! Free things!

Microsoft has announced next month’s four free games as part of their Games with Gold promo, and at least three of them are actually pretty cool. And since my birthday is next month, I might’ve been stoked to pick them up. Only, I don’t have either an Xbox 360 or an Xbox One. But for those of you who do, and have a current subscription to Xbox LIVE Gold, get ready for some sexy cars, sexy running, and even sexier RPGing.

The two Xbox 360 titles I won’t be getting for free are Forza Horizon (free download from 1-15 September), and the fantastic Mirror’s Edge (16-30 September). The two Xbox One titles, which, you guessed it, I will also not be getting for free are Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (16 September to 15 October), and a charming little indie RPG called Earthlock: Festival of Magic (available throughout September).

Oh, and Xbox One owners can play all four games on the console thanks to backwards compatibility.
