Xbox Live Games with Gold July 2016 announced

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson has revealed July 2016’s Games with Gold freebies.

On Xbox One, players can download The Banner Saga 2 and Tumblestone. As its name suggests, The Banner Saga 2 is the second entry in a planned trilogy from indie developer Stoic. The game is a Viking-themed turn-based strategy RPG and features beautifully hand drawn 2D animations, a narrative driven by player choices, and introduces a new race known as the Horseborn.

Tumblestone is an action puzzler which features the standard “match three” play style. However there is a slight twist – if you make matches in the wrong order, after a while you will run out of possible moves and the game board will reset. There are several multiplayer and solo modes available to players, and the game is also colour-blind friendly.

For Xbox 360, players can enjoy Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 and Tron: Evolution. Vegas 2 returns the franchise to America’s original city of sin, and allows players to explore various hot spots and gritty backstreets. At the time of its release, the game featured enhanced AI and an improved co-op campaign, as well as new weapons and armour.

Tron: Evolution is an action adventure game and was a tie-in for Disney’s Tron: Legacy film. Set before the events of the movie, the game explains what led to Kevin Flynn’s imprisonment inside the Grid and how it has evolved throughout the years.
