September’s Games with Gold freebies include new career opportunities in the prison industrial complex

It’s almost next month, and that means payday, debit orders that more or less make payday totally irrelevant anyway, and one more lunar cycle closer to your ever encroaching demise. And, if you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscribers, some free games to (kind of) make up for it – including Introversion Software’s build-and-manage-your-dream-penitentiary sim Prison Architect. What, you don’t have a dream penitentiary? No, you’re a weirdo.

As per regularly scheduled programming, the next compilation of Xbox Live Games with Gold is available exclusively for Gold subscribers, and for a limited time, and features two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games that are also backwards compatible on Xbox One.

What’s what:

  • Prison Architect (1 – 30 September, on Xbox One)
  • Livelock (16 September – 15 October, on Xbox One)
  • Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars (1 – 15 September, on Xbox 360 with backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
  • Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World (16 – 30 September, on Xbox 360 with backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
