The Xbox One X Will Be 'Smarter' When Downloading 4K Assets

  • Xbox News Games with Gold July Xbox One X Pre Order delay news Crackdown 3 Update

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood leads the charge - fitting, as the publisher has just confirmed a Brotherhood-style iOS and Android game called Assassin's Creed: Rebellion. Two games are for Xbox One and two of them for Xbox 360.

There's a distinct indie flair for the month of July, as Xbox One owners get access to both Runbow and Grow Up.

You can grab each of these free games next month on Xbox Live.

The PlayStation Plus games for July have not been revealed.

Those who buy an Xbox One X but don't have a 4K display will still benefit from 4K assets thanks to supersampling, a process that downsizes 4K assets to HD, removing rough edges ("jaggies") in the process.

The game offers an adventure mode, which is playable solo or co-op, battle arena, racing mode and more.

Microsoft is expected to release in the coming days its list of free game titles for Xbox Games with Gold subscribers this July.

Runbow is regularly priced at $15.99 for the Wii U. After August 15th, it's likely to be similarly priced for the Xbox.

As you can see from the like/dislike meter, a lot of people were not impressed with the Games With Gold for July. The Xbox 360 games aren't too shabby, but I definitely won't be booting either of those games up any time soon.

Obviously the only noteworthy and "good" game out of the bunch is Kane & Lynch 2. From the 16th until the end of the month children of all ages can enjoy LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean.
