Free Xbox One/360 Games With Gold for August 2016 revealed

WWE 2K16, Spelunky, and more coming for Xbox Live Gold members.

The lineup of free games Xbox Live Gold members will receive in August has been announced, with the first of the games set to be available next week.

Xbox One's games include Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate and WWE 2K16. The Xbox 360 games (which are also playable on Xbox One) are Spelunky and Beyond Good & Evil HD.
