This month's games have finally arrived and you can expect to see Darksider 3, Yooka Laylee, Lost Planet 3 and Garou: Mark of the Wolves

This is a pretty solid month all around.

When Is The Xbox Games with Gold August 2021 Reveal?

Major Nelson, otherwise known as Larry Hyrb, is the one you want to watch when it comes to Games With Gold announcements.

Every month, at around the same time, he reveals what we will see and gets the inevitable backlash from fans as the games don't live up to what they were expecting.

Generally, we see the announcement at around 8 am PST / 11 am EST / 4 pm BST on the last Tuesday or Wednesday of every month, meaning we saw the announcement on Wednesday, July 28th

Occasionally, with things like showcases, we might see a delay but we didn't see one this time.

What Will We See?

Generally, we tend to see two Xbox One games, one Xbox 360 game and one Xbox original title. They tend to be a little bit older and a little less known. Generally, they are decent games but not something people are asking for. Last month's games are below.

Unfortunately, predictions for each month's games are so hard to make (as shown by our previous predictions) so the chances of accurately guessing what could be up next are very slim. Generally, look for an indie title from a year or two ago that's not in Game Pass and you might get it right. The Xbox 360 and original games tend to be full releases which is nice to catch up on.
