"Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition" by DrinkBox Studios (Xbox One, $14.99 ERP)
Coming July 2, "Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition” is a challenging brawler/platformer, arriving via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program for Xbox One. You play Juan Aguacate, a masked Mexican wrestler on a quest to save the President’s daughter from the evil, skeletal Carlos Calaca – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll elbow-drop jaguars. More than just a meticulously balanced brawler, though, “Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition” features cleverly hidden secret areas, a vibrant world of wonderment built around the Mexican land of the dead, and a creative ability system that allows for ever-increasing exploration and rewards. “Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition” will replace June’s Xbox One Games with Gold title “Halo: Spartan Assault” so be sure to grab it while you can!
"Gotham City Impostors" by Monolith Productions, Inc. (Xbox 360, $14.99 ERP)
Available July 1-15, we have “Gotham City Impostors,” a multiplayer, first-person shooter based on DC Comics’ Batman universe. Here, two teams of six players face off against each other using a variety of Batman- and Joker-themed weapons in good ol’ deathmatches. Raucous fun, and plenty of it to be had for fans of blowin’ stuff up.
"BattleBlock Theater" by The Behemoth (Xbox 360, $14.99 ERP)
Available from July 16-31, experience “BattleBlock Theater”! You’ve got nowhere to go but up ... on stage. Play single player or co-op to free your friends and save Hatty Hattington! Jump, solve and battle your way through a mysterious theater inhabited by highly technological felines.
So, fancy a trip to the Mexican land of the dead? How about a desert island filled with sadistic cats? Or maybe Gotham City? You can do it all for free in July on Xbox Live. Check out the full details on our Games with Gold program, and make sure you get in on the action while you can!
