Strike Suit Zero, Dishonored and more available free on Xbox Live Gold in August

Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get four free games in August, including Dishonored on Xbox 360 and Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut on Xbox One, Microsoft announced today.



Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut (screenshot above) is the console version of Strike Suit Zero, the space dogfighting title from Born Ready Games that debuted on PC in January 2013. The director's cut was released in April 2014 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will be available free to Xbox One owners from Aug. 1-31, along with Crimson Dragon, the Xbox One launch title from Grounding and Land Ho.



The two free games on the Xbox 360 side will be split up over the course of the month, as usual. Bongfish's Motocross Madness will be available free from Aug. 1-15, while Arkane Studios' celebrated stealth action title Dishonored will go free from Aug. 16-31.



There are three days left in July, which means that Gold members still have plenty of time left to download Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition on Xbox One, and BattleBlock Theater on Xbox 360.

[h=2]Xbox Live's Games with Gold adds two classics and something new in October[/h]


Microsoft's Games with Gold promotion ushers in three new titles in October: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Darksiders 2 for Xbox 360, and Chariot for Xbox One.


DICE's first-person shooter Bad Company 2 and Vigil Games' action-adventure Darksiders 2 are likely familiar to many Xbox owners. Chariot is a new title from Canadian developer Frima Games and part of the [email protected] program for independent, self-published games. It's a 2D, local co-op platformer featuring a princess and her fiancé who are transporting the corpse of her father, the king, to its final resting place. For more on the Xbox One game, read Polygon's preview of Chariot from E3.




Here's a breakdown of when October's Games with Gold titles will be available.



  • Chariot ($14.99 ERP): Available from Oct. 1-31 on Xbox One
  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ($19.99 ERP): Available from Oct. 1-15 on Xbox 360
  • Darksiders 2 ($39.99 ERP): Available from Oct. 16-31 on Xbox 360

Xbox Live Gold subscribers currently have access to Super Time Force on Xbox One and Halo: Reach on Xbox 360 as part of September's Games with Gold offerings.

[h=2]IDARB arrives early on Xbox One, free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers[/h]

IDARB, a game from developer Other Ocean Interactive that blends eSports, crowdsourcing, Twitch and platforming, arrived on Xbox One today, a bit earlier than expected.


Previously pegged for a February release, the $14.99 title is free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers and available for purchase or download in the Xbox Store. IDARB was announced earlier this week as part of February's Games with Gold promotion.




It's easiest to understand IDARB by watching IDARB, so press play below to watch our Overview and the playful platformer's built-in lunacy.

sometimes i have been unable to download a game due to my location (pakistan) or even the fact that there is a downloading error even though the game has been downloaded completely onto my harddisk. i have a Xbox 360 LT (4GB) + 250 GB External hard disk. Has anyone else faced a similar issue?

Some games on 360 are region locked and will not download on GTs that are on different region consoles. This however is not applicable to Xbox one which is 100% region free.
