Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download a healthy mix of games from September’s Games With Gold lineup, including the beloved indie game Oxenfree, Microsoft announced today.

The Racing Game of the Year Edition of Forza Motorsport 5, which was originally released in November 2013 as an Xbox One launch title, will be free all month long. Forza 5 introduced concepts such as the “Drivatar,” an AI based on your actual driving behavior in the game.

September’s other Xbox One title for Gold subscribers is Oxenfree, the teenage adventure game from Night School Studio. It will be available free from Sept. 16 through Oct. 15.

On the Xbox 360 front, Hydro Thunder Hurricane will be free from Sept. 1-15. Hydro Thunder Hurricane is Vector Unit’s 2010 sequel to the aquatic racing game; it launched in 2010 on Xbox Live Arcade. During the second half of the month, Gold subscribers can download EA DICE’s Battlefield 3, the modern military shooter that debuted in 2011, for free. As always, both games are playable on Xbox One via Xbox 360 backward compatibility.

In the meantime, Gold members can still download two of the August Games With Gold: Trials Fusion and Red Faction: Armageddon.
