As always, we're here to talk about the latest Xbox Games with Gold announcement. They always tend to be a little lacklustre, but will October 2021 be any better than September? Well... That's for you to decide, really. Here's what we're getting, either way.

CONFIRMED - What's coming to Games With Gold?

Xbox's Major Nelson has confirmed - as he always does - the next month's Games With Gold games. They're a little lacklustre, but not the worst we've ever seen - surprisingly.


If you're an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you can get your hands on the following games for free throughout the next month.

  • 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

If these don't tickle your fancy, you'll be pleased to know that Marvel's Avengers is joining Xbox Game Pass on September 30th. It might not win GOTY, but we all know that it's a much better game than anything Games With Gold is offering us.

October Games Predictions

It's always difficult to pick out four games that could be put into the service but we're going to try anyway! For the modern offerings, we think it's high time that one of the remastered Assassin's Creed games was made available. We'll take 3 or Liberation!

Liberation is a grossly underrated Assassin's Creed game

Alongside this would be either a platformer or indie title like Haven, which is currently in Game Pass but would be a good game to offer just in case it leaves the service. As for the Xbox 360 games, We think of some big titles like Catherine or Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Many may have missed these games the first time around, so give them the chance to catch up!
