September is almost upon us, which means we’ve got a new crop of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Microsoft has been packing these events with some pretty stellar games and this month is no exception. You can look for a brand new game and the classic Mirror’s Edge in this month’s Games with Gold. Here’s the full list with some descriptions from the official Xbox news site.

Forza Horizon

Start the month off by jumping behind the wheel in the dynamic, open-road street racer Forza Horizon.

Mirror’s Edge

Last by not least, on September 16 comes Mirror’s Edge. In an oppressive city, clandestine messages and deliveries make their way around via Runners, jumping, climbing, and dashing across rooftops. Play as Faith in the original first-person free-running action game, fighting and outrunning a powerful regime that is not afraid to use deadly force. Experience the breathtaking sights and sounds and always land on your feet.
