September 2020, who would have thought we would have made it this far… Anyway, a little late, but if you haven’t already claimed them, there are some pretty decent Games with Gold this month.
Tom Clancy’s The Division Sept 1-30
Take back New York City after it has fallen into chaos. This online shooter is a groundbreaking experience, combining robust RPG customization and tactical action combat. Play a massive co-op campaign, take on other agents, and earn cutting edge gear, as you fulfill your objective: protect what remains and restore hope.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 Sept 16 – Oct 15
The legends have foretold it and prophecies predicted it: The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is available in September’s Games with Gold lineup. The continuation of the point-and-click adventure saga hilariously spoofs some of the most beloved and famous fantasy stories ever written. With over 20 hours of story, help the quirky cast of characters fulfill their destiny in the tricky world of Avantasia.
de Blob 2 Sept 1-15
Set off on an action-packed colorful adventure. The Inkies are back with a new plot to rid the world of color and it is up to Blob to stop them. Featuring a unique painting functionality as the main game mechanic, this platformer showcases 12 new single player levels, multiplayer support, and epic boss battles.
Armed and Dangerous Sept 16-30
Capture victory in 12,000 bullets or less in this classic Xbox title. Meet the Lionhearts, a smack-talking band of rebels on an impossible mission to save the world – that is if they don’t burn it down first. With a witty story that parodies popular media, wield outlandish weapons and shoot your way through 21 action-packed levels.
The Division is a modern classic, good gameplay that still has people playing today if they haven’t moved on to The Division 2. The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a bit of an obscure one that I can’t really tell you about beyond the description above.
de Blob 2 is atually a really good romp to have a laugh with and pass the time. It has a kind of two player option, but is pretty limited and better if player take turns to swap every now and then.
I used to have (I probably still have somewhere) Armed and Dangerous on the PC and is the most underrated laugh you’ll have with a game.
Go grab them from the Xbox website or directly on console and help make September 2020 feel that little bit better.
