Following in the footsteps of Sony and the Playstation Plus program, Microsoft has started offering free games for members with an XBOX Live Gold account. Well, today Major Nelson has announced the free games for the month of August. For the month of August, we will be receiving not one, not two, but three free games. Also, in case you couldn't already guess the freebies for August are cooperative titles.
The free games for the month of August are Crackdown, Dead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. This month, however, there is a timetable for Gold members to be aware of. Between August 1st and August 15th, Crackdown (normally $14.99) will be free to download. Then, beginning on August 16th, both Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero (a $34.99 value) will be free to download.
Both Crackdown and Dead Rising 2 feature cooperative play online with up to two players. If you don't already own them, you may as well download them for free. Keep posted for future deals as news becomes available.
