Xbox announced the Xbox Games with Gold for August 2020 last month. However, July had Saints Row 2 and WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship. This month’s selection is rather underwhelming in comparison, yet it offers some wholesome and meaty experiences.
The list for Xbox Games with Gold for August is given below, with descriptions from the Microsoft Store. As always, two games will be on Xbox One, and two will be on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Override: Mech City Brawl: August 16 – September 15 on Xbox One
No gears, no glory! Control gigantic robots and duke it out across fantastic cityscapes in this 3D mech-based brawler! Epic and explosive battles await with distinctive mechs in local and online versus mode, party co-op with two to four players, and a single-player campaign. Pilot a diverse roster of epic, skyscraper-sized mechs, each with their own playstyle, special moves, and finishers.
MX Unleashed: August 1 – 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
Rainbow Studios returns to its heritage to bring the definitive next-generation off-road game to life. If you want more intense action, battle it out with a monster truck, helicopter, or bi-plane!
In addition to 4k ultra HD, this title also offers local co-op.
Red Faction 2: August 16 – August 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
Twenty-second century Earth. Five years after the rebellion on Mars. For the last 15 years, Sopot, the corrupt dictator, has oppressed the people of the Commonwealth. His relentless pursuit of unification with the neighboring United Republic has left the country soaked in unnecessary bloodshed and poverty.
Another game that offers local co-op, Red Faction 2, puts players in a sandbox open world. To add, this game kind of wants to be a Halo clone.
Even though most of the games are not appealing to the masses, almost all the titles of this month offer local co-op. So, that’s a big win.
