Crackdown Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero part of Games With Gold in August

Microsoft’s promise of giving two games away for free each month has been broken.

This month, they’re giving away three.

Starting tomorrow, Xbox Live Gold Members can grab a copy of Crackdown for absolutely nothing. Crackdown was an Xbox 360 launch title and is one of the better open-world, sandbox experiences we’ve seen this gen.

Following that, on August 16th, Crackdown will be replaced by Dead Rising 2 , as well as Dead Rising 2: Case Zero . Case Zero is a prequel to Dead Rising 2 and bridges the gap between the original game and Dead Rising 2.

This is part of the “Games With Gold” program which gives Xbox LIVE Gold Members 2 free games to keep each month. A new title will be available the 1st and 16th of each month.
