Next month’s selection includes Ubisoft’s multiplayer brawler For Honor, open-world racer Forza Horizon 2, co-op horror game Dead Space 3, and Disney platformer Epic Mickey 2.

Xbox Games With Gold Serves Up Jurassic World Evolution and Toy Story in December

Here are Microsoft’s official descriptions of all four August Games With Gold titles:

For Honor

Be prepared to enter the chaos of war in For Honor. Mix speed, strategy, and team-play across several multiplayer modes as you control your favorite warriors, be they bold Knights, brutal Vikings, or deadly Samurai. Master the innovative Art of Battle combat system and guide your armies to ultimate victory.

Forza Horizon 2 - 10th Anniversary Edition

Drive over 200 exotic cars and explore the beautiful vistas of southern France and northern Italy like never before, in this 10th anniversary edition of Forza Horizon 2. Show off your driving skills with friends online in challenging races and events, day or night, in dynamic weather conditions. A world of beauty and freedom awaits in this ultimate celebration of speed and style.

Dead Space 3

Return as protagonist Isaac Clarke in the survival horror game Dead Space 3. Joined by Sgt. John Carver, travel to the ominous ice planet of Tau Volantis to uncover the secrets of the Necromorph plague. With online co-op mode, join a friend and use teamwork to end the deadly threat once and for all.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

Grab your magic paintbrush and return to save the world of Wasteland once again in Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. Pair up with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, interact with classic cartoon characters of the past, and defeat the Mad Doctor in this heroic two-player co-op adventure.

Dead Space 3 will be available from August 1 to 15, For Honor and Epic Mickey will be available on August 16, and Forza Horizon 4 can be downloaded all month long. As always, once you download a Games With Gold title, you’ll have permanent access to it, so long as you still have an active Xbox Live Gold membership.

A pretty good lineup following a couple not-so-great months. For Honor, Forza Horizon, and Dead Space 3 are all worth your time. What do you think? Anything strike your fancy?
