It is that time again, time to take a look at the free Games with Gold for the month. As many of you well know, Microsoft offers several games for a free download each month. That is over 80 free games to try out each year!
Games with Gold is now also offering both Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for their monthly promotions. Games for the older Xbox 360 console are backwards compatible, so they are playable both on the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. That way, you can still pick up older games you might not have gotten the chance to play when they were newly released.
What does Games with Gold have in store for us in October 2016? Let’s take a look:
Don’t let the stylize cartoon graphics fool you. Super Mega Baseball actually packs quite a punch when it comes to its game mechanics. This baseball simulator contains some pretty solid and accurate physics behind the goofy looking avatars. It also features a comprehensive statistics tracking system, so you will know the breakdown of every single game you play.
For anyone who wants a real challenge from their sports games, Super Mega Baseball also has a difficulty called “Ego Mode”. The Ego controls allows each player to customize the difficulty of each aspect of the game. This mode allows you to test your skills against up to 4 other online players.
Super Mega Baseball will be available on Games with Gold from October 1 to 31st, 2016.
Do you think you have what it takes to break out of the big house? You are an inmate in a high security prison, and your one goal is to escape your confinement.
You will require various tools to escape prison. Steal supplies or barter with other inmates in order to craft the items you need. Complete missions given by your fellow inmates in order to increase your status and gain valuable allies. But, above all, avoid alerting the prison guards at all costs!
The Escapists will be available on Games with Gold from October 16 to November 15th, 2016.
If extreme sports and off-roading are your cup of tea, then Xbox Live subscribers should definitely download MX vs ATV Reflex this month. This thrill ride of a game is all about immersing players in racing and stunt driving motocross and supercross motorcycles and ATVs. Players can choose between a number of event styles including omnicross, free ride, champion sport track, waypoint racing and freestyle.
Reflex offers an all-new control and physics system to the MX vs ATV series. The Reflex system allows for finer control than ever before. The left analog stick controls the handlebars, while the right controls the lean of the player’s body. The new style of steering is far more realistic than previous games.
MX vs ATV Reflex will be available on Games with Gold from October 1 to 15th.
Following a worldwide tragedy only known as the Event, mankind is struggling to survive. Entire cities have been leveled, and the government tries in vain to maintain control. The few survivors left fight for territory and what precious few supplies are left.
You are survivor Carlo Mestroni, a man trying to find his family among the chaos. You must explore what is left of Haventon, gather supplies, and avoid the hazards in this post apocalyptic world. Basically, anyone looking for a new twist on games like Fallout will want to download I Am Alive.
I Am Alive will be available on Games with Gold from October 16 to 31st, 2016.
