Gaming fans on the Xbox live scene will be either shaking their heads in total disbelief , or be finding themselves in a rather jovial mood, I mean we all love freebies right? (I know which one I’ll be doing). As Microsoft unveiled the games with gold lineup for the month of July, on both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 (Backwards compatibility).

The official description reads the open-world adventure game Grow Up will be available July 1 – 31, followed by the racing game Runbow from July 16 to August 15 for Xbox One.

Step into the shoes of disillusioned and desperate criminals in Kane & Lynch 2 starting July 1 – 15, and then get ready for  LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game from July 16 – 30 on the 360 system.


Grow Up
Living the life of a B.U.D. (Botanical Utility Droid) can be tough. Especially when your spaceship breaks into pieces and scatters across a planet filled with amazing plants and wondrous structures! As B.U.D., along with your friend P.O.D., you’ll traverse this open world and recover parts of your ship. Fly, climb, bounce, roll and complete challenges along the way in this wibbly wobbly fun adventure.

A fast-paced party action game with a never before seen color mechanic. Up to nine players can race against each other locally or online as platforms and obstacles appear and disappear when the colored background changes. Go head-to-head in one of Runbow’s modes, including Arena, King of the Hill, ColourMaster, and The Bowhemoth.

Kane & Lynch 2
Play as two violent and disturbing criminals in the action shooter Kane & Lynch 2. Lynch, the psychopath, has his sanity on the edge at all times and Kane, the ex-mercenary, is disillusioned and desperate. Play as both in an epic single-player story driven campaign, or team up with a friend over Xbox Live.

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game
Time for a swashbuckling adventure in LEGO form. Play as characters from the classic film series, each with their own personalities and abilities, and join your friends in co-op play! The wide-open seas are full of bricks for the plundering in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game

A rather disappointing choice of games there, Kane & Lynch 2 might be worth a play through and the LEGO games are always fun, but for Xbox One owners, a poor month indeed.

Feel free Xbox fans to vent your rage in the box below! I feel your pain.
