It’s almost time to expand your game library with a few new free titles from Xbox’s Games with Gold for the month of August. There’s a little something for everyone this month, from a life sim coming out of Early Access to a critically acclaimed action game.
Check out the full list of August’s Games with Gold and their dates below:

On August 1st, open-world farming/ life simulator Slime Rancher will be coming out of Early Access for its full launch, and it’ll be free on Xbox One the whole month. Care for your own galactic farm full of slimy creatures where each day is filled with new challenges and possibly… feral slimes?
