September's Free Games

Xbox Games with Gold is back for another month, offering you four free games with your Xbox Live subscription.

This is what we know about this month's games.

Latest News - October titles announced

The four games that will be available in October have been announced.

Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut, Maid of Sker, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy and Costume Quest are the four games that Xbox Gold members will get for free!

Xbox has also revealed the latest round of Deals with Gold.

Watch Dogs 2 and Tom Clancy's The Division are on offer this month - and you can see all the best discounts here.

Release Date

Xbox Games with Gold follows the same format each month of the first two games released on the 1st of the month, with the under two arriving on the 16th.

Slayaway Camp and Sphinx will be released on Thursday, 1 October - with Slayaway Camp running for the whole month, and Sphinx running until the 15th.

The other two games will arrive on Friday, 16 October - with Costume Quest running until the end of the month and Maid of Sker running until 15 November.

These aren't quite the titles we predicted though. You can see our original predictions below...

Watch Dogs 2

An ambitious prediction maybe, but if Microsoft really want to get people's attention - offering Watch Dogs 2 would certainly get fans on-side.

KEEPING WATCH - Give the people what they want!

Watch Dogs: Legion arrives on Xbox One in just over a month (29 October), so making it one of October's Games with Gold would be perfect timing to get people playing the prequel.

Its inclusion in the latest round of Deals with Gold does mean it will now be an unlikely Games with Gold inclusion.

Forza Motorsport 7

A racing title is often common in Games with Gold, and few fans would complain with Forza 7.

FULL FORZA - Now this would be a serious addition

The game is currently on sale at $19.99 / £14.99- as Xbox Game Studios start to perk interest ahead of the eighth instalment expected next year.

A Games with Gold inclusion may come just a little early for Forza Horizon but watch this space.

Skate 3

There's always two throwback titles on original Xbox or Xbox 360 - and Skate 3 would not be a bad inclusion at all!

HANG TIME - Skate 3 would be a popular retro inclusion

The EA series is returning, and with the game on sale for just a few days on the Microsoft store - could it make a popular appearance on Games with Gold.

Now over a decade old, let's see if we can Make EA Skate Again.

Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic

With Star Wars Battlefront appearing a few months ago, we'd love to see another title from a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

An original Xbox title is common with Games with Gold, and few would be better than this 2003 classic.

September's Free Games

For September's Games with Gold we saw Tom Clancy's The Division, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, De Blob 2, and Armed and Dangerous.

Check out our take on them here.
