Gears of War 4 and Torchlight
Starting August 1st, Xbox Gold Members will be able to download Gears of War 4, from The Coalition. The fourth iteration in the epic series in Gears of War, we see the story of Marcus Fenix’s son, JD Fenix. This game takes place 25 years after, spoiler alert, Marcus defeated all the Locust. As you can imagine, the planet of Sera is a much different place and while JD is busying fighting robots, a new evil is lurking underground. Make sure to pick up Gears 4 before the launch of Gears 5, later this year.
The second game available starting on August 1st, is Torchlight. This isometric game is similar to Diablo, where people will hack and slash their way through dungeons trying to acquire more loot. So make sure to bust out your weapons and go adventuring for treasure.
Forza Motorsports 6 And Castlevania: Lord of the Shadows

Last, but not least, comes Castlevania: Lord of Shadows. Konami decided that there were enough 2D Castlevania games and developed this 3D adventure. Play as Gabriel Belmont as he tried to unlock the secrets of the Lord of Shadows.
