Xbox Live Gold September game lineup; Tomb Raider and Crysis 3 among the four games

Microsoft has announced their Games with Gold Xbox Live lineup for September 2015, bringing some well-known games into the picture.

Right after Sony announced their PS Plus September game lineup, Microsoft kicked into gear with their September lineup reveal, which includes some well-known games. 

Remember, these free games only come with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, just as PS Plus is also a paid membership with Sony.

Four games for September

Included in the September Xbox Live Gold lineup are some games that are not only popular, but have been invested in by Microsoft. 

  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition via Xbox One - Lara is back again in an updated version of the 2013 Tomb Raider game, which includes all DLCs and upgraded graphics for the Xbox One and PS4. 
  • Deer God via Xbox One - Platforming game with 3D pixelated art that gives the user a philosophical experience with challenging religions.

  • Crysis 3 via Xbox 360 (September 15th-30th) - A futuristic first person shooter game set in an apocalyptic New York. 

One thing to note is that the Xbox 360 Live Gold games will only be available for two weeks at a time while Xbox One games are available all month, at the same time. In a goal to make Xbox Live Gold a more harmonious experience, Microsoft announced that upcoming Xbox 360 games included in the lineups will have backwards compatibility on the Xbox One.
