For Honor and Forza Horizon 2 Headline August’s Xbox Games With Gold

Xbox Games With Gold is bringing in an all-star lineup for August. Four free games will be available for those with an Xbox Live Gold subscription—two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360.

For Xbox One owners, Forza Horizon 2 will be available starting August 1st and will stay up until the 31st. Forza Horizon 2 is an open-world racing game released in 2014 to highly positive reviews. The next game in the series, Forza Horizon 4, will be released this coming October, so this may be a good opportunity to jump into the Forza Horizon series before the next title’s release.

From August 16th to September 15th, Ubisoft’s For Honor will also be available. For Honor is a historical, team-based fighting game. While it received middling reviews at launch, Ubisoft has kept supporting it since its launch last year and fixed many of its original flaws.

For Xbox 360, Dead Space 3 will be available from the 1st to the 15th, and Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two will tag in on the 16th and will be available for the remainder of the month. Both games will be playable on the Xbox One as well thanks to backward compatibility.

Currently, Microsoft is having a sale on Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. While normally a twelve-month subscription costs $59.99, it’s now on sale for $39.99. The three-month subscription has also been knocked down to $9.99, the same price as a one-month subscription. The sale ends in a few days, so benefit from it while you still can!

Forza Horizon 2 Chassis Pack Arrives With Six Fantastic New Cars

Playground Games just released a new downloadable car pack for Forza Horizon 2, adding to its already generous library of over 200 painstakingly recreated machines. The NAPA Chassis Car Pack includes the 1970 Buick GSX, 1988 Chevy Monte Carlo SS, 2002 Lotus Esprit V8, 2014 Supercharged Range Rover, 2015 Audi RS6 Avant, and the 2015 McLaren 650S Coupe.

The GSX and Monte Carlo SS pack some serious muscle and will no doubt be incentive enough for many car lovers to go and buy this download right now, but the McLaren is decidedly the most outstanding car in the entire package. A 641hp supercar, the 650S manages 0-60mph in just 2.9 seconds, and 120mph in 8.6 seconds with an extraordinary top speed of 207mph.

The Lotus can be had on its own in the first month, no charge, or the entire pack can be purchased for $5 on Xbox One. For those of you who purchased a $25 season car pass, the pack is free. Check out the video from Xbox Wire above.

Forza Horizon 2 Releases on September 30th

Forza Horizon 2, the long anticipated sequel to the original Forza Horizon, was recently shown off at Gamescom 2014. Aside from having stellar graphics and great music, the game is described by its developers as being “the most social racing game ever made”. The game seems to be centered around a “stay connected” theme in which you’re never truly alone, even in single player.

The game’s social features include instant online-mode (no waiting in lobbies), car meet-ups, the ability to download other players’ car designs, and even see your friends’ “Drivatars” in single player.

You can check out the trailer above!

Forza Horizon 2 Won’t have Microtransactions at Launch

If you’re worried that Microsoft Studios will be trying to double-dip into your pockets with Forza Horizon 2, you can rest easy. Forza boss Dan Greenawalt has confirmed that the ‘Token’ microtransaction system currently present in the franchise since Forza Motorsport 4 won’t be available for the second installment of the Horizon spin-off series. Instead, it will only be implemented if Turn 10 Studios discover that the in-game economy is working as intended.

The decision to exclude microtransactions from Forza Horizon 2 may have been influenced by the negative backlash the company received when it released Forza Motorsport 5, in which they made the controversial choice to scale real-money prices with in-game ones. The end result was that some cars could cost over $50 if players didn’t want to spend time to earn enough in-game currency.

Forza Horizon 2 is set to launch on the 30th of September for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Microsoft Announces Forza Horizon 2

The Forza Motorsport franchise has served Microsoft well over the years, proving a good rival for Sony’s Gran Turismo series, and it looks like the series won’t be stopping any time soon. Just yesterday, the owners of Xbox revealed that a sequel to 2012’s Forza Horizon, cleverly titled Forza Horizon 2, is being developed for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Alongside the always enormous selection of cars to race across tracks and roadways, this game will also take a few details from Forza Motorsport 5—specifically mentioned was the “Drivatar” feature, which analyzed how players of Motorsport 5 raced in order to shape the way their computer-controlled opponents drove, and a weather system.

Forza Horizon 2 is being developed for the Xbox One by Playground Games, the developer of the original Forza Horizon, while the team at Sumo Digital will be working on the Xbox 360 version. No release date has been given yet, but we can hope to hear more details next week, when we reach the long-awaited gamers’ paradise that is E3.
