Microsoft has announced the four titles as part of the Games with Gold Program for August 2019. In the eighth month of the year, Xbox Live Gold members will be getting over $94.96 in value, including Gears of War 4, Forza Motorsport 6, Torchlight, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
As always, two of the games are for Xbox One and the other two are Xbox 360 titles, but you can play them all on your Xbox One using Backwards Compatibility.
On Xbox One, throughout the month of August 2019, Xbox Live Gold members can download Gears of War 4 ($29.99 ERP) for free. Also, from August 16 through September 15, Forza Motorsport 6 ($29.99 ERP) will be available for download at no extra cost.
On Xbox 360, Torchlight ($14.99 ERP) will be free until August 15. Then, on August 16 and until the end of the month, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow ($19.99 ERP) will also be available for free (via Xbox Wire).
