It’s the middle of November, Christmas is fast approaching, and before we know it the year will be out. But before all of the festivities kick off in earnest, we need to take in the freebies whenever they are offered, and thanks to the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for November, they are coming in plentiful supply – the latest of which is a free download of Joy Ride Turbo.
A native Xbox 360 title that first launched in 2012, hot on the heels of the Kinect only Kinect Joy Ride, Joy Ride Turbo has today been stripped of its price tag, delivered for free to holders of Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, no matter whether they are rocking an old-skool Xbox 360, or the most up-to-date Xbox One.
Usually priced at just £6.75, this latest Xbox Games With Gold free title won’t see the biggest saving ever, and it probably won’t see the best gaming experience provided either, but hey, for free, you may as well get a download in place – if only so you can hit it up during the cold, wet, winter months.
Joy Ride Turbo most certainly delivers what you would expect from a cheap and cheerful arcade racer, pushing you through 3 game modes – Battle Race, Pro Race and Time Trial – as you hit up jumps, pull off stunts, and prove to the unsuspecting world that you are the hottest joy rider.
It doesn’t only cater for the solo racer though and you can expect to see some multiplayer support in place too, across both local split-screen opportunities and that of the online world.
Should you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription in place then you’ve got until the end of November 2019 to make the most of the free love that Joy Ride Turbo brings. Make sure you head to the Xbox Store to grab your download before then. And with the power of Backwards Compatibility, it matters little whether you wish to play on 360 or One either.
