September Games with Gold brings Portal 2, Thrillville and more

September is almost here and Microsoft has finally revealed what bonus games are coming to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members this month.

September’s two incoming waves each have an Xbox One game and an Xbox 360 game, with all titles touting backwards compatibility. Thanks to this, owners of modern Xbox consoles can also claim and play the games natively on their systems.

See below the newly announced titles for the program and when will they be available:

The gods will fall: Available from September 1 to 30

The tortuous reign of the gods over humanity has lasted for millennia. Prone to cruelty and suffering, they demand to be served with blind worship by an oath of loyalty promised to every man, woman and child. To those who do not submit to the will of the gods; a slow and ruthless death awaits you.

Double Kick Hero: Available from September 16 to October 15

You must survive on the highway to hell by killing monsters with your gundillac!
Fight through 30 levels of total madness and escape this nightmare! Only the power of Metal can save your band!

Thrillville: Available September 1-15

Customize your park, interact with guests, build and jump your own roller coasters and other rides. Race on go-kart tracks you’ve built, play mini-golf on courses you’ve designed, or join friends for dozens of four-player board games, from bumper cars to shoot-’em-ups of arcade.

Portal 2: Available September 16-30

Using a highly experimental portal device, you will once again face off against a deadly inventive and power-crazed AI named GLaDOS. Break the laws of space physics in ways you never thought possible, with a greater variety of portal puzzles and an expansive story that spans single-player and co-op play.

September is the last month that Microsoft will offer Xbox 360 games as part of Games with Gold. Starting in October, only Xbox One games will be included in the bi-weekly schedule.

There’s only one day left until one of the new September waves takes its place in the Games with Gold section, which means there’s still time to grab the August games currently available.
