Splinter Cell and Virtua Fighter return in July 2018’s Xbox Games with Gold

The next month of Xbox’s Games with Gold has been announced and combines two 2017 titles for Xbox One with a pair of old classics from the Xbox 360.

  • Assault Android Cactus (Xbox One, July 1-31)
  • Death Squared (Xbox One, July 16 – Aug 15)
  • Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown (Xbox 360, July 1-15)
  • Splinter Cell Conviction (Xbox 360, July 16-31)

Both shooter Assault Android Cactus and puzzler Death Squared support multiplayer but I think I’ll be likely checking the former out first simply because I think it’s time I need another twin stick shooter in my life

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown represented the last hurrah for Sega’s fighting franchise which during its peak was a viable alternative to other lobg running series like Tekken and Dead or Alive.

Though it does occasionally stray a little too far from what made the prior games great, Splinter Cell Conviction might still win players over through its Jason Bourne feel and excellent presentation.
