New games to download on Xbox Series X
Microsoft will be announcing its plans for Games with Gold for July 2021 between Monday and Wednesday this coming week.
Included in the announcement will be the four games available to download and play for free next month on Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles.
This is expected to include two games from Xbox One and two games from Xbox 360, with very few Xbox Series X titles, included so far.
This could be seen as a frustrating situation to be in for those with an Xbox Series X hoping to see another next-gen title added to the list.
But with more next-gen upgraded games expected to be announced for Games with Gold over the coming months and years, there’s something worth checking out this weekend.
Gamers can download three titles and play them at no extra charge until Monday at 7:59am BST, if they have a Games with Gold or Xbox Game Pass subscription.
And while many of these titles have been available for some time, gamers should note that one of them boasts an Xbox Series X upgrade.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was optimised for Xbox Series X late last year and comes with some notable upgrades.
The next-gen makes it possible to play a smoother console experience and includes support for 4K resolution with 60 frames per second.
The full list of games includes Overwatch and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, although neither has been officially listed as offering Series X upgrades on the Microsoft site.
Descriptions can be found listed below for each of the three games that can be played for free over the next 24-hours:
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected takes the saga to another level, with the Boss of the Saints now President of America trying to save the world from a deadly alien invasion.
