With Fast & Furious: Crossroads set to release on in August on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, we think that there’s a chance it’s predecessor could pop up.
Fast & Furious: Showdown is the 2013 instalment in the series, and it would be great to get a taste of the gameplay for free ahead of the big reveal.
On the topic of 2013, we saw a Halo title feature as a free title for a whole month.
One option could be Forza Motorsport 4 – especially with the huge announcement on the newest version of the game. Now would be a great time to remind players how far the series has come!
Plus, the game has featured in console bundles for some time now, one of which you can check out right here!
You will also be able to find some impressive Xbox deals and discounts in our GWG August section on site, so what are you waiting for?
As far as a pattern goes, we’ve seen the Games With Gold line up revealed on the last Tuesday of the month, with the off exception.
The way that the dates are lined up for August, we’re expecting the line up to be revealed on Tuesday 28 July.
With two of the games set to expire on 31 July, we can expect the first set of games to arrive early on Saturday 1 August.
The other games with a later start date will likely arrive on 16 August, after Dunk Lords expires.
