It's finally time to check out what games we're getting from Games With Gold in October 2021. They're usually some pretty old and pretty cheap titles, but this month might be better... Right? Well, here's what we're getting.

CONFIRMED - October 2021's Games With Gold games

Major Nelson has hopped onto Twitter to announce that Xbox has confirmed the following games as Xbox's Games With Gold games for October 2021:

  • Aaero - October 1st until October 31st
  • Hover - October 16th until November 15th
  • Castlevania: Harmony of Despair (Xbox 360) - October 1st until October 15th
  • Resident Evil Code: Veronica X (Xbox 360) - October 16th until October 31st

As expected, they're a bit lacklustre. Thankfully, Marvel's Avengers is joining Xbox Game Pass on September 30th. So... It might be worth checking that out instead of the Games With Gold games, next month.

Games With Gold October 2021 Predictions

The issue with Games With Gold is they tend to feel a little random. They aren't always themed around major releases and tend to feel a little thrown together. However, we're hoping to see something spooky for October as they do occasionally play into this.


For this reason, we think we will see Outlast 2. Released a few years ago and with a new game coming soon, we could see the arrival of this game as we received the first one a few years ago.

As well as this, we think we will see Saint's Row hit the service to celebrate the new reboot. Other than this, we're hoping for two nice new indie titles.

September's Games With Gold Titles

September's Game with Gold was Warhammer: Chaosbane, Mulaka, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, and Samurai Shodown II.


In comparison to previous months, this wasn't a terrible offering. Hopefully, October can beat it with some nice themed games.
