Gold Games, August 2021: from Darksiders 3 to Yooka-Laylee

Games with Gold brings a surprisingly good selection of free games to subscribers in August 2021.


Entering the heart of summer, I Games with Gold Ads August 2021 They surprise us with a lot of free games For subscribers of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate we can surprisingly set, considering the criteria to which we are so accustomed.

We know very well how Microsoft has changed the priority of its subscription services, so in the face of the Xbox Game Pass offering that continues to show in terms of the quantity and quality of the games offered in the catalog, games with gold titles are increasingly looking like a legacy of the past to be filled. Somehow, sometimes with proposals that are at least disappointing or directly useless to most players. Starting from this situation, facing the four games selected in August 2021 was a pleasant surprise for many, considering the average quality of the proposals.

Let's be clear: these titles are still a long way from the latest market news: the release of the first fruits and large-caliber three-A games is still suitable only for the Xbox Game Pass region at this time, but at least restoring older games on this occasion has generated a roster. Very interesting. The big limitation remains the age of these games, so maybe many have bought or played them in the past, but it's still a good combination of action experiences to 3D platformer games, from the most classic shooting game to the historical fighting game.

In principle, there are four games that we recommend without reservation to all, just to fill this summer of video games that already seem very rich, especially at this time. So let's see in more detail what the August 2021 show is about, bearing in mind that games with the gold titles for July 2021 are still available by the end of the month and in particular Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break will still be available until August 15.

Darksiders III - August 1-31

The Vigil series was rescued excellently by Gunfire Games, and no for nothing was the authorship of much of the previous team, that Darksider 3 managed to give more life to a franchise that is somewhat in crisis, mainly due to the significant regulatory chaos about the publication. After all, the third chapter was presented in 2018 extremely full of new ideas.

The Story The Fury saga is told in a sort of prequel from previous episodes, but what has changed in Darksiders 3 is above all gameplay, although it officially remains in the same vein as the series.

The special combination of features, in this case, derives elements from a Metroidvania file and like the soul, thus merging two of the hottest trends of recent years and we are still able to make a fairly interesting structure that can function properly. Compared to the physical momentum of war and death, Fury is more dynamic and unpredictable, attacking through Hollows' special item abilities, closely invoking the role of traditional magic. Good attention to design level and particularly challenging battles make it an atypical chapter of the series, but it fits perfectly into style.

In case you want to get it back, here's our review of Darksiders 3.

No for nothing, the Playtonic team was created specifically to develop the game from Kickstarter, founded by former laurels of the original authors of Banjo Kazooie, from which the game was not only inspired but also intended to be a kind of spiritual successor. The task is not simple: it is about transmitting the mechanics and spirit of the classic platform games in a three-dimensional context and the titles that succeeded in the project were rare even at the time of its greatest prosperity, so it is the portion that is convincing today is the great challenge.

Yooka-Laylee is not a perfect game, but one of the truest examples of honoring the classic 3DPlatform, one of the few recent games that have been able to capture and repropose this special magic of jumps, platforms, and collectibles in a 3D world, starting with an excellent level design and a somewhat charismatic characterization.

The fact that it is somewhat derivative (one of the flaws in Yooka-Laylee's analysis) is only one consequence of achieving this result, and for nostalgic players, it is likely to be an asset, while for younger players it can become a paradox. abnormal.
