ANOTHER DUD MONTH - Xbox is really leaning on Game Pass nowadays

We didn't get any of our predictions right, which is a bit of a shame, but that's what's on offer.

July 2021 Games With Gold Predictions

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Admittedly, this is a big stretch. That being said, with Elden Ring getting a gameplay trailer and a release date finally, it may be time to revisit Sekiro.

Sekiro blends From Software's challenging combat to a robust stealth system and tops it off with plenty of interesting lore and interesting boss battles. This may be a long shot but we can also hope to see something this cool. This is especially worth including with all the updates the gamer has recieved.

Return of the Obra Dinn

Games With Gold always includes a cheap current generation indie, Return of the Obra Dinn is this and so much more. It's a brilliant puzzle game that will stay with you for days after you've finished it.

If this isn't announced this month, it's worth picking up regardless as it's a genuinely brilliant and creative game.

Two Xbox 360 Games

These are probably the hardest as they are often the most random choices of the month. Occasionally, they are an old AAA, sometimes an indie, often a LEGO game. With that in mind, here's what could come up.

Lego Marvel Avengers

Being a LEGO game and one we've never seen in Games With Gold, this makes sense to show up this month

Alan Wake

Alan Wake, the often overlook survival horror game is pretty great. Even though it's fairly old now, this would be a worthwhile addition. From the minds behind Control, this is worth giving a go.
