In regards to the Xbox 360 games, Torchlight is up first, going free August 1st to 15th before being replaced by Castlevania: Lords of Shadow from August 16th through the 31st. It should be noted that all Xbox 360 games in Games With Gold can be played on Xbox One, but not vice-versa. Unfortunately, neither Xbox 360 game features the co-op we here are such a fan of, and while multiplayer can be found in Forza Motorsport 6, Gears of War 4 is the only true co-op title for this month’s games.

Xbox Live Gold Members Can Enjoy Gears of War 4 for Free This WeekendJason Love

The Gears franchise has always been a pretty popular choice when it comes to co-op games around these parts (but is it the MOST popular??), and Gears of War 4 certainly didn't disappoint. Two player drop-in/drop-out online or couch co-op is supported throughout the campaign, and five player online co-op is supported in the Horde 3.0 mode. It's worth noting that the Xbox One version of the game supports combo co-op for Horde (i.e., couch co-op and online co-op can mix), but the PC version doesn't. We've got a Co-Op FAQ that covers all the various ins-and-outs when it comes to the overall "Co-Op Experience."

In addition to the new vertical splitscreen, the update that drops today also adds two new maps, Glory and Speyer, to multiplayer, and some various tweaks/improvements. One of the bigger ones for Horde are the changes to mounted turrets, which now do less damage, are less accurate, and have lower ammo reserves. The full patch notes can be found in The Coalition's community forums here.

With an engaging campaign, smart Horde mode additions, and a cast of characters that go beyond being the stereotypical "meatheads," Gears of War 4 is an impressive achievement. The Coalition has not only successfully transitioned the series from its previous stewards, but clearly took the time to improve upon the formula as well. This jus...
