It's nearly the middle of July, which means time is running out for Xbox Live Gold subscribers to grab two of the Games With Gold that is available now. One is Smite Gold Bundle, an Xbox One holdover from June. The other is the Xbox 360 game Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. Both games will go back to full price on July 15.
Smite is a free-to-play MOBA game, but the Gold Bundle includes 20 additional gods, plus skins, announcer packs, and other extra content. It normally sells for $100, which makes it a phenomenal deal for anyone interested in playing this online game.
Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is a fighting game geared toward the online competitive play. Thanks to a set of in-depth tutorials, it has a reputation for being more welcoming to newcomers than some other fighting games. Even though this is an Xbox 360 game, it's backwards compatible on Xbox One.
Also available for Xbox Live Gold subscribers to download now is Assault Android Cactus, a twin-stick shooter that's available until July 31. Starting July 16, you'll be able to download the co-op puzzle game Death Squared for Xbox One and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
