Xbox Games With Gold For September 2018
Prison Architect, available from Sept. 1 to Sept. 30, tasks players with designing, building, and running a maximum security prison. Not only will players have to make sure that inmates do not escape while providing them with decent lodgings, they will also have to tackle challenges such as riots and fires.
Livelock, available from Sept. 16 to Oct. 15, is a top-down, twin-stick shooter that also offers three-player co-op. Players will be able to explore a post-apocalyptic Earth using one of three different robot types, each with their own weapons and abilities.
For Xbox 360 owners, the free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers are LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars and Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World.
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is open for downloads from Sept. 1 to Sept. 15. It takes the LEGO formula for video games and applies it to animated series The Clone Wars, with 20 story-based missions featuring massive battles, space combat, and boss fights.
Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World is open for downloads from Sept. 16 to Sept. 30. It is often referred to as the Monster World Collection, and includes three games featuring Wonder Boy, a shape-shifting child on a mission to save the world.
Both Xbox 360 games, as usual, will also be playable on the Xbox One through the console's backward compatibility feature.
