Games With Gold September 2017: Pretty cars and paranormal mysteries

Matt Sayer 25 August 2017 NEWS


Forza Motorsport 5 and Oxenfree headline this month's Games With Gold.

August's Games With Gold line-up impressed with the adorable farming adventure Slime Rancher and the butt-kicking Bayonetta, along with the brutal Trials Fusion and the havoc-happy Red Faction: Armageddon.

September's offerings play it a little safer, serving up the Xbox One launch title Forza Motorsport 5 in advance of Forza Motorsport 7's imminent release this October. It is the Game of the Year edition, though, which nets you the Top Gear content pack and ten extra cars.

The inclusion of the supernatural adventure game Oxenfree, on the other hand, is significantly more exciting. The Xbox One title weaves a captivating tale of ghostly happenings and awkward teenage interaction, and features some of the most natural-sounding teen dialogue of any game we've seen.

For Xbox 360 owners, September brings the aquatic racer Hydro Thunder Hurricane and the military shooter Battlefield 3.
