Microsoft has revealed the free games packaged with their Games with Gold premium subscription for the month of September 2019. For Xbox One, players will receive Hitman: The Complete First Edition from IO Interactive for the entire month of September, while they’ll also receive Total Mayhem Games’ adventure game We Were Here from September 16th to October 15th. Meanwhile, Xbox 360 fans will be able to play Earth Defense Force 2025 for the first half of September, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the second half.
The Xbox news site describes all four games as follows:
Hitman: The Complete First Season
Take down high-profile targets in the intense spy-thriller world of Hitman: The Complete First Season. Broken down episodically, this complete collection features all of the challenges and contracts assigned to Agent 47 in multiple worldwide locations including Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado and Hokkaido. Learn the tools of the trade and earn your way to Silent Assassin status in this award-winning stealth action game.
We Were Here
Team up with a friend or a stranger online to escape an abandoned castle in We Were Here. This challenging puzzler finds you and one other player trapped alone in different parts of a mysterious castle with only your walkie-talkie and voice to help you. Communication and collaboration with your partner are key, as every room will challenge your wits and only your voice and teamwork will allow you to escape.
Earth Defense Force 2025
Defend humanity once more in Earth Defense Force 2025. It’s been eight years of peace and prosperity since the last alien invasion, but now the Ravagers are back and stronger than ever. Utilize hundreds of weapons at your disposal across four different character classes to repel the terrifying invasion of giant aliens and save the world.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
The world’s greatest fighters return to battle it out and unleash the most vicious combos in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Featuring solid gameplay and a massive cast of your favorite characters, select and partner up the best mix of players to claim ultimate victory.
Also, Forza Motorsport 6 will remain available for Xbox One players until September 15th.
In a month where Sony is offering Batman: Arkham Knight and Darksiders III, Xbox again is offering a pretty strong selection themselves with Hitman and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Of course, thanks to Xbox One’s backwards compatibility, Tekken Tag will be playable for Xbox One fans as well, giving players a chance to use some of the game’s older characters that aren’t included in Tekken 7.
