As October arrives, so are the new free Xbox games for those with a Xbox Live Gold subscription. For the month of October, Microsoft is planning to make free three new games, one for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360 owners.
For Xbox One owners, starting October 1st and until the end of the month will be able to download Chariot for free, a game from ID@Xbox from Canadian developers Frima. Normally priced at $14.99.
Xbox 360 will get Battlefield: Bad Company 2 starting October 1st and until the 15th. The game has a regular price of $19.99, but as a Gold subscribers you’ll be getting it for free.
The second game for 360 owners is Darksiders II, Gold subscribers will be accessing this game for free starting October 16th and until the end of the month. This game is normally priced at $39.99.
Just remember all you need is an Xbox Live Gold membership to take advantage of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program. If you don’t have a subscription there are always good deals on Amazon, and if you have an older version of Xbox 360 with limited storage you can pick up a cheap hard drive upgrade too.
