The slate of Games With Gold titles for August 2022 has arrived, and there are some big names within. Chief of all is Saints Row 2, the 2008 sequel to the very first game. That’s no coincidence though, with the big-budget Saints Row reboot coming out this month. Read on to learn about all the new Games With Gold titles for August 2022.
Xbox Games With Gold Titles for August 2022 Announced
Another month means four new games added to the Games With Gold service. Like before, the two Xbox 360 titles can be downloaded and kept forever, while the Xbox One games only last as long as you remain subscribed. If you have a Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you’ll automatically get Gold, however, meaning you should be fine.
The first game is Calico, which is available from August 1 to August 31. Saints Row 2 joins it on the first of the month, but is only available for download until the 15th. On the 16th these are replaced by the 360 game Monaco, which remains until the end of the month. The only other arrival is ScourgeBringer, which remains from August 16 to September 16.
All in all, it is a better month for Games With Gold than in recent history. Saints Row 2 is no doubt the biggest name on offer. It gives players a chance to sample the series’ wacky history, just before the reboot from Volition arrives. Other indie titles like the simulator Calico arrive, which lets you craft your own cat café in a derelict town. Alongside the rougelite ScourgeBringer and the top-down heist sim Monaco, there’s plenty to try out.
It seems to be a big month for the service, with a lot of change due later this year. In October it will no longer offer Xbox 360 games, so the addition of Saints Row 2 is definitely a big one. While we may not get many more previous generation games with the service, it’s going out strong.
