Xbox Games With Gold features Splinter Cell: Conviction in July

Assault Android Cactus leads Xbox One lineup

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

The list of free Xbox Games With Gold titles for July 2018, which Microsoft announced today, is led by Assault Android Cactus and Splinter Cell: Conviction.

Xbox One customers will be able to download Assault Android Cactus free all month long. A twin-stick shooter from Witch Beam, the game debuted on PC in September 2015 and was ported to PlayStation 4 in early 2016. But it’s fairly new to the Xbox platform, having been released on Xbox One in November 2017. The other Xbox One game for July is SMG Studios’ Death Squared, a puzzle game. It will be available free from July 16 through Aug. 15.

On the Xbox 360, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown will be free from July 1-15. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction is the free game for the second half of the month. As always, both games will also be playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

In the meantime, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can still pick up some of the June games, including Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues.
