Microsoft has unveiled the September 2022 Xbox Games With Gold, including Gods Will Fall and the game classic Portal 2.
As revealed on Xbox Wire, next month’s offering will include some ice-cold classics, such as Portal 2 leading the lineup. Gods Will Fall is also included alongside Double Kick Heroes and the theme park designer, Thrillville.
The four Games With Gold titles will be available in September to anyone with Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
From September 1, Gods Will Fall and Thrillville kick off.
Gods Will Fall is available for Xbox Series X|S – a dark fantasy action game in which you can lead a band of Celtic warriors against the gods themselves, taking on both monsters and gods in each of the god realms.
Thrillville is only available until September 15, but allows you to build your own theme parks. Design roller coasters and go-karts, miniature golf courses – the whole nine meters. Monitor your guests and make sure you keep them happy to keep your theme park profitable. It is an original Xbox title available through backwards compatibility. A must for retro gamers.
Double Kick Heroes and Portal 2 will be released mid-month on September 16.
Rock adventure Double Kick Heroes combines shoot ’em ups with rhythm games for a whole new experience on Xbox Series X|S. There are 30 levels of madness and metal… so grab your ax and get ready to shred.
Portal 2 needs no introduction – it’s the classic sci-fi puzzle game that pits its silent protagonist against the maniacal computer system GLaDOS. An all-time classic with hours of gameplay and an excellent co-op mode, you’ll definitely want to pick this one up.

IGN’s Portal 2 review gave it a 9.5/10, saying, “The original Portal benefited from its brevity. It had a concise story combined with inventive first-person puzzle mechanics that challenged you to be creative as you pulled the trigger. Portal 2 makes the original look like the prototype it was. It’s filled with a larger cast of characters vividly brought to life by brilliant lyrics and some of the best voice acting in video games. The puzzles are challenging without being unreasonable, and once you’re done with the single-player mode, one of the best cooperative experiences on the market awaits.
As previously announced, Xbox Games With Gold will no longer feature Xbox 360 games from October 2022, so be sure to grab Portal 2. It’s an excellent game to see the Xbox 360’s Games With Gold offering.
