Xbox One Game – Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice
Xbox Games with Gold Predictions
It’s time for some Xbox Games with Gold free games predictions, and kicking off the list is our pick for a possible Xbox One game inclusion.
For the current month of August 2020, we got Portal Knights between Aug 1 – 31, MX Unleashed from Aug 1 – 15, Red Faction 2 from Aug 16 – 31, and Override: Mech City Brawl from Aug 16 – Sept 15.
For September 2020, adventure game Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice from Ninja Theory is looking like a very possible choice for a couple reasons.
Firstly, the game is currently on sale for one more week (around the time when Game with Gold games are picked) for 40% off lowering its price to just $17.99, the lowest it’s been on Xbox One for over eight months.
Microsoft has a history of offering games for sale right up until the free games announcement, in the hopes of getting a few more purchases out of the game before it is offered for free.
Secondly, Ninja Theory has been acquired by Microsoft since Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice’s release in 2017. Meaning it would be much easier for Microsoft to offer this title for free since it is under its umbrella as a publisher.
Finally, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice released in 2017 and Microsoft often gives a game two to three years on its console before opting to offer it for free. With Hellblade’s popularity it gained when it did release three years ago, it would make sense for Microsoft to consider it as a Games with Gold title in 2020 to make Xbox fans happy.
