Xbox Games With Gold free games for September 2022: Portal 2


Xbox Live ends nearly a decade of Xbox 360 freebies in September with Portal 2. Starting in October, Games With Gold will only offer Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers access to Xbox One and Xbox Series X titles.

Valves Gate 2, which launched on Xbox 360 in April 2011, hardly needs an introduction. The puzzle-platformer is the sequel to 2007 Gatewhich stood as a Games With Gold selection in June 2019 with Portal: still alive (a version with additional puzzles).

Curiously, the other returning console title on offer in September is Thrillville, which is an original Xbox title. It was part of the last batch of 76 Xbox and Xbox 360 titles made backward compatible (with Xbox One and Xbox Series X) in November, effectively ending this campaign started in 2015. The last original Xbox title offered by Games With Gold , before September , was Conker: Live and Reloaded in July 2021.

Microsoft announced the removal of Xbox 360 games from Games With Gold in July, saying the program had “reached the limit of our ability to bring Xbox 360 games into the catalog.” But players who have claimed these games can continue to download, keep, and play them, whether or not they maintain an active Xbox Live Gold membership.

Both September Xbox One picks are the dark fantasy action game of 2021 The gods will falland 2020 unusual Double Kick Heroan indie title that combines the rhythm game and shoot-’em-up genres.

Here are the games and their availability windows:

  • The gods will fall ($14.99 ERP): September 1-30.
  • Double Kick Hero ($21.99 ERP): Sept. 16-Oct. 15.
  • Thrillville ($9.99 ERP): September 1-15.
