August free Xbox 360 games: Crackdown and Dead Rising 2

Continuing with the Xbox 360 free games for Xbox Live Gold members, Microsoft has now revealed three new games that will be available in August, 2013.

From August 1st until the 15th gold members can download Crackdown free, which is normally $14.99. Also you can get the Free-For-All Pack and Four-Play Pack at no extra cost (These two in-game purchases are not part of the Microsoft’s free games for gold members program, but they are free as of this writing).

On August 16th and until the end of the month, Microsoft will also make available Dead Rising 2 (normally $29.99) and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, a 400 Microsoft’s point game for free.

You can can either make your free purchase on the web by log in to your Xbox.com account or you can, of course, turn on your Xbox 360 and confirm the download from the dashboard.

This will be the 3rd month that Microsoft is offering Xbox 360 games for free and the company will continue to do so until the Xbox One launch later this year.
