September’s first two Games With Gold video games are now available to play for free for Xbox console owners with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.
The first game, Gods Will Fall, is an action-adventure title and is available on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X console families.
Here’s its official game description:
You Are The Last Hope For Humanity. The gods’ torturous rule over humanity has lasted for millennia. Bent on cruelty and suffering, they demand to be served with blind worship through an oath of fealty pledged from every man, woman and child. To those who don't submit to the gods’ will; a slow and merciless death awaits.
Experience the brutal trials of a venturous band of warriors in their desperate plight to sever the gods’ callous grip on humanity. Every man and woman who can muster a blade, having suffered the brutality of the gods’ reign for too long, will be called upon to form your clan of 8 Celtic survivors and rise up to take on the legions of horrific beasts and minions that dwell in each of the gods’ hellish realms. A personal tale emerges with every decision made. Succeed and see legends born. Fail, and watch lives turn to dust.
The second game, Thrillville, is a game that first came out on the original Xbox console back in 2006. It’s available to play via backwards compatibility on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X console families.
Visit Thrillville and step into a nonstop party in a theme park that you create. Customize your park, interact with guests, and build and hop into your own roller coasters and other rides. Race on go-kart tracks you constructed, play mini-golf on courses you designed, or join friends for dozens of four-player party games, from bumper cars to arcade shoot-'em-ups. Tour the park on foot as you chat with the guests to make sure they're enjoying themselves.
Thrillville is available to claim until September 15th while Gods Will Fall can be claimed right up until September 30th. A third title, Portal 2, will unlock on the 16th and replace Thrillville.
As with previous Games With Gold games, while the claim period is limited, a game can be played at any time in the future once the claim is made and an Xbox Live Gold subscription is active.
