Xbox Games with Gold

Microsoft has announced the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in October 2019.

The latest Games with Gold lineup features a solid selection of free games but nothing to get truly excited about. Most interesting is the 2015 platformer, Tempo the Badass Elephant. The Sega-published game is noteworthy for being developed by Game Freak, better known as the creators of the Pokémon series. It’s a pretty fun ride.

Tempo is joined on Xbox One by Jason Voorhees, star of Friday the 13th: The Game. Illfonic’s asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror game received lukewarm reviews on its release in 2017 but it quickly sold over two million copies and has a fervent playing community. It’s certainly worth a try.

October’s Xbox 360 games are the disappointing Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, and the Bolt, the official game of an 11-year-old Disney animated film that no one remembers. Both can be played on Xbox One thanks to Backwards Compatibility.

We’ll just say it. October’s lineup of free PlayStation Plus games is better. Here are the availability dates for each game.
