There should never be a time when you turn down free games. And that in itself is what makes the Xbox Games With Gold scheme so damn enticing – four free Xbox games per month, all delivered digitally to your own personal games library. No fuss. No bother. And now that October 2020 is preparing to roll into view, a host of additional free games will soon be yours, with the full line-up of Xbox Games With Gold freebies for October 2020 now confirmed. The only question that is really left answering is a simple one – which free Xbox game will you be playing first?
Following on from a month in September that provided Xbox One and Xbox 360 gamers access to the likes of The Division, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, de Blob 2 and Armed & Dangerous for absolutely zero outlay, October rocks up into place to once again nail what is required of a scheme that happily provides the goods on a monthly basis. In fact, from where many will be sitting it could well be said that those games provided for nothing across the month of October are actually of a more stellar line-up than the month previous. You see, for the next four weeks or so, all Xbox gamers who have a valid Xbox Live Gold subscription to their name will be able to download the following, FOR FREE!…
- Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut – Xbox One – 1st-31st October 2020
- Maid of Sker – Xbox One – 16th October – 15th November 2020
- Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy – Xbox 360 – 1st-15th October 2020
- Costume Quest – Xbox 360 – 16th-31st October 2020
Whether you have played the games before, are new to the Xbox ecosystem and looking to fill your boots with new titles, or are just looking to relive long lost memories once again – hi, Costume Quest – then it’s still proven to be a great time to be an Xbox gamer. With us in the UK about to roll into the cooler, wetter, even more miserable months of the year, it is always nice to have something sitting in the backlog, ready to be cracked open at a moments notice. And these four games pretty much provide that.
We’ll be sure to remind you when the second set of titles become available for free download opportunities, but in the meantime, if you haven’t yet grabbed your complimentary copies of The Division, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, or Armed & Dangerous, get over to the Xbox Store and hit the download button.
That is, after you’ve let us know your thoughts on the Xbox Games With Gold titles for October 2020 that is. Are these four games that get you excited? Or has the power of Xbox Game Pass ultimately ruined everything that this older scheme provides? The comments are down below.
