What's free on Xbox and PlayStation: August 2015
I'm Jeff Bakalar and I've got August's free PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Games with Gold to share with you.
First let's take a look at what the PS4 offers.
This month, it's Lara Croft Temple of Osiris.
That's the isometric top-down game.
From the same company that makes those Blockbuster Tomb raider games.
Next on PS4 is Limbo.
I hope you've already played this.
I mean it's available on pretty much every platform ever but for some reason you never got around to it.
I can't recommend it enough.
It's an amazing platform game.
It's a great style.
Devilishly clever puzzles and most importantly A heartwarming morbid story.
Across all Playstation platforms players will get the rhythm based platformer Sound Shapes along with the 3D puzzler Stealth Incorporated two.
PS three and Vita owners have one cross over game this month and that's [SOUND] CastleStorm, which is a genre-buster that combines physics-based destruction and strategic elements.
Finally, those of you still chugging away on that PS3 of yours.
[SOUND] You're gonna get God of War Ascension, perhaps the weakest of the God of War games' last generation.
But nevertheless Plenty of button mashing fun.
Okay, let's switch sides over to the land of XBox.
This month XBox One owners will get to play Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes for free.
Which, if I recall correctly from my time with that game, it was a great crouching simulator.
Xbox One players will also get How to Survive: Storm Warning, which is a survival zombie game.
This game will be available August 16th through September 15th, so just take a mental note of that.
Finally, the first-person, post-apocalyptic horror game Metro 2033 will be free for the first half of August.
While it's arguably better followup, Metro Last Light will finish off the second half of the month.
Both of them are solid shooters though, so be sure to grab them while you can.
Okay, that does it for August.
As always a tiny caveat, you do of course need to be a member of PlayStation Plus And/or Xbox Live Gold to access these free games.
Those memberships do cost a little bit of money, but let's be honest, you and I both know they're well worth it.
