Xbox Games With Gold Delivers Hitman and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in September
Microsoft has revealed their September Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup, which includes your standard two Xbox One games and two Xbox/Xbox 360 games. Of course, the older games can be played on Xbox One via backward compatibility. Next month’s selection includes the full season of 2016’s episodic Hitman series, acclaimed indie survival game We Were Here, the bug-blasting bonanza Earth Defense Force 2025, and classic fighter Tekken Tag Team Tournament 2.
Here are Microsoft’s official descriptions of all four September Games With Gold titles:
Hitman: The Complete First Season
Take down high-profile targets in the intense spy-thriller world of Hitman: The Complete First Season. Broken down episodically, this complete collection features all of the challenges and contracts assigned to Agent 47 in multiple worldwide locations including Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado and Hokkaido. Learn the tools of the trade and earn your way to Silent Assassin status in this award-winning stealth action game.
We Were Here
Team up with a friend or a stranger online to escape an abandoned castle in We Were Here. This challenging puzzler finds you and one other player trapped alone in different parts of a mysterious castle with only your walkie-talkie and voice to help you. Communication and collaboration with your partner are key, as every room will challenge your wits and only your voice and teamwork will allow you to escape.
Earth Defense Force 2025
Defend humanity once more in Earth Defense Force 2025. It’s been eight years of peace and prosperity since the last alien invasion, but now the Ravagers are back and stronger than ever. Utilize hundreds of weapons at your disposal across four different character classes to repel the terrifying invasion of giant aliens and save the world.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
The world’s greatest fighters return to battle it out and unleash the most vicious combos in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Featuring solid gameplay and a massive cast of your favorite characters, select and partner up the best mix of players to claim ultimate victory.
Earth Defense Force will be available from September 1 to 15, We Were Here and Tekken will be available on September 16, and Hitman 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.
Pretty darn good Games With Gold lineup – I’d say Microsoft narrowly beats Sony’s PS Plus offerings this month. What do you think? Any of this month’s Games With Gold strike your fancy?
