Microsoft Reveal July 2021 Games With Gold

Lots To Break… I Mean Play

July 2021

Microsoft this morning revealed the Games With Gold lineup for July 2021. While they may not be the most exciting lineup, there’s some gaming goodness to be had here.

On July 1st Planet Alpha will be available. This shooter from Team 17 is normally $19.99 so there’s some savings there. On the same day Xbox Live Gold members can download Conker: Live & Reloaded. This original Xbox remake of the N64 classic is perhaps most surprising for not already being on Game Pass. Still, Live members will be able to play it for free now.

On July 16th two additional games will be available. Until the end of July Midway Arcade Origins will give you more than 30 classic arcade games. Through August 15th you’ll be able to download Rock of Ages III: Make & Break. We reviewed that one last year and really enjoyed it, giving it a 4/5 so a free download is worth your time.

While the big announcements seem to be saved for Game Pass at this point, there’s still good fun available for those without. Are you excited for these July 2021 options? Check out a trailer for Rock of Ages III below.

Andrew has been writing about video games for nearly twenty years, contributing to publications such as DarkStation, Games Are Fun, and the E-mpire Ltd. network. He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
