Chances are you might still be enjoying the Games with Gold July lineup (Spelunky, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, WWE 2K16 and Beyond Good & Evil HD) but we’re always excited to look forward and anticipate what the next month might bring. Microsoft’s free game service has been giving out more AAA games than the competitor in recent months so there’s a good chance we might see another AAA or two. Here’s our predictions for what we might see come to Games with Gold in September 2016.
UPDATE: It’s been confirmed that Earthlock: Festival of Magic will make its debut on Xbox One on September 1 with Games with Gold.
Ryse: Son of Rome
Ryse: Son of Rome plunges you into the chaos and depravity of the late Roman Empire. The game tells the story of Marius Titus who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarians. Seeking revenge, Marius must embark on a perilous journey of revenge, betrayal, and divine intervention. He joins the Roman army in Britannia and quickly rises through the ranks to become a General. As his war against the barbarians escalates, his quest unravels: to find his vengeance, he has to return to Rome. As Marius, you’ll engage in brutal combat and lead your forces into massive battles to save Rome from threats to its very existence.
Ryse is a graphical beauty on the Xbox One and is even today still one of the most beautiful games on the current generation of consoles. It didn’t get received all that well by critics but as a GWG game, who can really pass up on it?
