After having offered Tropico 4 in May 2021, then the excellent fighting game Injustice in June 2021, Microsoft has just announced a new batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. On this July 2021 show, two Xbox One games, an Xbox classic and an Xbox 360 title.

As a reminder, backward compatibility offered by Xbox One consoles, Xbox Series X, and S Series allows gamers to enjoy almost every game released on multiple Microsoft machines. That’s why the American company takes the opportunity each month to put the classics back in the spotlight, like this month with the legendary and hilarious Conker: Live & Reloaded.

Of course, we recommend that you take a look at this classic from the Xbox catalog. Even though the title clearly shows the weight of the years, it is essential to (re)discover the adventures of the craziest and most irreverent squirrel in video game history. And if you like cinema, you will be answered, the game is happy to parody many 7th art classics, such as We must save Private Ryan or Star Wars.

Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break will put you in the shoes of a destructive ball in a universe that strongly resembles the madness of Monty Python. Destroy everything that gets in your way and, thanks to the excellent level editor, build your own circuits and give them to your friends. we change the mood with Planet Alpha, an action/platform game in which you’ll have to survive after your ship crashes on an unknown and hostile planet. Special mention for the artistic direction of the title, beautiful.

We conclude this batch with Midway Arcade Origins. This compilation will delight arcade game lovers, with a selection of the best arcade games from Midway publishers, such as Defender, Gauntlet or Rampart. Something to remember fond memories.
