Games with Gold

After releasing Earthlock Festival of Magic and Mirror’s Edge as some of the gifts for Xbox Live Gold subscribers last month, the next set of games to be released for free under the Games With Gold promotion have now been announced by Microsoft. Xbox 360 owners will be treated to MX vs ATV Reflex and I Am Alive. If you own an Xbox One, then you will be able to download the pixel prison simulation game The Escapists, as well as a cartoon styled arcade sport game named Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings.

As with the previous updates, these new games will be available on Games With Gold from October 1st and 16th, and will be on promotion until the dates stated in the trailer below. As an added bonus, the Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One through Backward Compatibility. You will be able to access them for free, as long as your Xbox Live Gold subscription is active. Will you be downloading these new titles onto your Xbox One and Xbox 360 in October, and what are you hoping to see in November’s update?
