Dishonored is an immersive first-person action game that casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. With Dishonored’s flexible combat system, creatively eliminate your targets as you combine the supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
The Xbox One games included with the Games with Gold promotion this month (Crimson Dragon and Strike Suit Zero) are still available if you haven’t picked them up yet. For more details and download links for these games, check out this post.
Microsoft’s Games with Gold promotion has given Gold members two free games each month on the Xbox 360 since June of 2013. These games were free for a limited time but once downloaded, are free to keep and play forever. In June of 2014, the promotion was expanded to the Xbox One console. Xbox One games made available through the promotion are also free for a limited time but require an active Gold membership to continue playing them.
