Games With Gold acts separately to Xbox Game Pass, which is an additional subscription-based service that allows users access to a wide selection of games. July saw many new additions being added to the service, including the highly-anticipated Yakuza Kiwami 2 and the Xbox exclusive, Grounded.

Sony announced its PlayStation Plus games for August yesterday (July 27) and will allow members of the online service to download two select games for free throughout the month.

Subscribers will be able to dive into Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered and the upcoming Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, which is being added to the service the same day as its release.
