July’s Xbox LIVE Games with Gold promo includes The Banner Saga 2


Originally expected to launch only at the end of next month, Microsoft and Stoic Studios have announced that the viking-’em-up RPG The Banner Saga 2 will instead debut on Xbox One on 1 July already as one of the monthly Xbox LIVE Games with Gold freebies. By Thor’s hammer, what a savings.

The Banner Saga 2 will be free all month for Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers next to Quantum Astrophysicists Guild’s blockbustin’ puzzler Tumblestone, also on Xbox One, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Tron: Evolution on Xbox 360 and Xbox One with backwards compatibility.

The availability dates are:

  • The Banner Saga 2 from 1 – 31 July
  • Tumblestone from 16 July – 15 August 15
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 from 1 – 15 July
  • Tron: Evolution from 16 – 31 July
