Xbox Games With Gold For August 2020


Here are the games that you’ll get if you are an Xbox Live Gold Subscriber.

It’s August and Xbox has decided to grace us with some amazing games this month, some you know and some you maybe haven’t heard of yet. There is some fast-paced racing action, and some FPS action to look forward to among others. But enough chit-chat here is the list of Xbox Games With Gold Games For August.

MX Unleashed (1st of August to the 15th of August):

MX Unleashed is a racing game with sharp controls which allow players to weave around obstructions in the course as well as other opponents controlled by artificial intelligence. The turns are very tight and the responsiveness of the controls allow the player to do as many tricks as possible before landing after a jump.

In the career mode, the player must place in the top three to unlock another race, with unlimited tries allowed to make the podium finish. The freestyle mode is much different. There are a variety of challenges one has to complete in order to unlock more challenges and move on to another freestyle map.

The challenges include a series of targets that the player’s bike must land on after every jump, a timed freestyle measured by the number of points scored in the time frame, a race against a vehicle that is not a dirt bike, and a contest in which the player must hit ten targets after jumps before the other seven racers. Successfully completing a challenge will unlock a more difficult version of it, as well as more challenges.

Red Faction II (16th of August to the 31st of August):

Twenty-second century Earth. Five years after the rebellion on Mars.

For the last 15 years, Sopot, the corrupt dictator, has oppressed the people of the Commonwealth. His relentless pursuit of unification with the neighboring United Republic has left the country soaked in unnecessary bloodshed and poverty.

Propaganda is plastered throughout communities and a Public Information Building, built as a tribute to the self-centered chancellor, spews news broadcasts with claims of victory as more and more soldiers fall victim. Fed up after years on the front lines, a group of super-soldiers injected with nanotechnology vow to replace the dictator and restore peace.

Defend your country as Alias, a demolitions expert, with the help of your five squad members, each specializing in their own method of destruction. Fight through diverse levels using vehicles, an arsenal of specialized weapons, and massive explosives in your rampage to overthrow the government.
