Xbox Games with Gold: October picks are meh


Microsoft has announced October’s Games with Gold lineup, but those expecting AAA blockbusters might be a tad disappointed.

Got an Xbox 360? Then you’ll be receiving motocross title MX vs ATV Reflex from 1-15 October. From 16-31 October, Xbox 360 gamers can download Ubisoft’s polarising survival title I Am Alive. Of course, these titles will also work on the Xbox One.

Speaking of Microsoft’s newer console, the two Xbox One picks are Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings and jailbreak title The Escapists. The latter will be available from 16 October to 15 November while the former is available throughout October.

Last month’s picks were far more impressive, it could be argued, in the form of Earthlock, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China (16 September to 15 October), Forza Horizon (1-15 September) and Mirror’s Edge (16-30 September).

Don’t care for Games with Gold but still want a decent gaming deal? Then this week’s Deals with Gold isn’t too bad, offering 60% off Just Cause 3 and Dragon Age: Inquisition GOTY Edition on Xbox One. Xbox 360 gamers can look forward to an 80% discount on Sacred Citadel and 75% off the Risen trilogy and Sacred 3.
