Free Xbox games for July announced – The amazing Banner Saga 2 included

The next batch of free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games courtesy of the Games with Gold promotion has been announced. The batch is solid, especially with the great pillar that is The Banner Saga 2.

As seen in the image above, here’s the rundown.

The Banner Saga 2 – Free from July 1 to July 31

Tumblestone – Free from July 16 to August 15

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2 – Free from July 1 to 15

Tron: Evolution – Free from July 16 to 31

As usual now, the Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible on the Xbox One, so they work on both platforms.

I can personally speak to the quality of The Banner Saga 2 (you can read my review here) and Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Both are great games. I remember Tron: Evolution releasing to poor reception, so I’ll color that as the throwaway of the month. I know nothing about Tumblestone, but I’ll be checking it out based on its art style and puzzle mechanics.

All in all, not a bad month. The Banner Saga 2 is a fantastic experience, so give that a go if you have an Xbox One and Xbox LIVE Gold.
