August Xbox Games with Gold features Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes

Microsoft has just announced its Xbox Games with Gold lineup for the month of August. Xbox One owners who are subscribed to Xbox Live Gold will receive Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes for free next month. The prologue to Hideo Kojima’s forthcoming Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain couldn’t have been added to Games with Gold at a more appropriate time, as the latter is a mere month away from release.

This should give fans who have yet to try out Ground Zeroes the opportunity to do so prior to picking up The Phantom Pain in September. In addition, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will also be able to download How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition for free on Xbox One between 16th August to 15th September.

Meanwhile, Xbox Live Gold subscribers with Xbox 360s shouldn’t feel left out, as they’ll be able to grab the horror shooter Metro 2033 between 1st August to 15th August. Completionists will be happy to know that they’ll also be able to get its sequel, Metro: Last Light, for free between 16th August to 31st August. Those who have yet to experience the Metro series can now play through both games and see what the fuss is all about.
