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

Well July is here and that means it’s cold here in South Africa, but it also means we currently have lockdown measures in place which means a lot more of us will be staying in and playing games. This month Xbox Games With Gold has come through for its subscribers by giving them Four new games to enjoy.

In the mix this month we have a beautiful alien world filled with mystery and danger in Planet Alpha. We have Competitive tower defense meets arcade action in Rock Of Ages 3: Make & Break. Some platformer action in Conker: Live & Reloaded and finally a compilation of classic arcade games in Midway Arcade Origins.

Planet Alpha (1st of July to the 31st of July):

PLANET ALPHA, a beautiful alien world filled with mystery and danger. Pursued by relentless enemies, you must harness the power of night and day as you struggle to survive. You have awoken on a strange alien world. Injured, alone, and stranded you venture across this foreign land, navigating beautiful and varied terrain as you try to stay alive. The world of PLANET ALPHA is affected by the solar cycle, and as you progress you’ll discover a unique gift – you can manipulate the time of day and use it to your advantage. Explore a unique world and piece together your story. What will you discover on PLANET ALPHA?

Rock Of Ages 3: Make & Break (16th of July to the 15th of August):

Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break is competitive tower defense and arcade action rolled up with ACE Team’s quirky, Monty Python-esque humor into one giant, creative game for the ages! Jump into the expansive, gut-busting story for an eclectic adventure featuring bizarre and irreverent takes on legendary characters, or for the first time, create and share your own levels to compete with friends and strangers online in a real-time mix of hectic tower defense and epic boulder-racing arcade action.

Conker: Live & Reloaded (1st of July to the 15th of July):

Conker: Live & Reloaded is a platform video game developed by Rare and exclusively released for the Xbox in June 2005. The player may participate as a member of the SHC or the Tediz. As well as a choice of a soldier, the game has a choice of “classes” which significantly affect play style. Each class has its own special equipment, special abilities, and physical capabilities, each being designed for a distinct purpose. They are also designed to have advantages against certain classes while being vulnerable to others.

Midway Arcade Origins (16th of July to the 31st of July):

Midway Arcade Origins is an arcade compilation released on November 6, 2012, in North America and in Australia. It is the successor to the Midway Arcade Treasures series and includes a selection of games that were included in those compilations, with the sole exception of Vindicators Part II which will be included in Midway Arcade Origins.
