Microsoft has revealed Xbox Games With Gold's free games for the month of September. And for the first month of fall, Xbox is giving all Xbox Live Gold subscribers one of the generation's biggest games: Tom Clancy's The Division. Unfortunately, it's not the sequel from last year, but its predecessor that hit in 2016. Beyond this, Games With Gold has another, smaller Xbox One game it's giving away, plus an Xbox 360 and original Xbox game. All four titles will be given out at different stages in September, and one will even be available next month as well.
As always, all four of these free downloads are exclusive to Xbox Live Gold. Meanwhile, it's important to note that while these are free downloads, you need to maintain an active subscription to access the titles. That said, as long as you have a subscription to Xbox Live Gold, you can play all four games whenever you'd like, as much as you want.
Below, you can read more about all four games, as well as check out a trailer highlighting each game:
