Games with Gold: October 2014

Games with Gold: October 2014

by Christopher DillardSeptember 25, 2014

You know the drill by now. Another month is coming up and with it, Microsoft and XBOX are giving away more games for Gold Subscribers!

October is bringing one new game to the XBOX One and 2 (amazing) games to the 360, which add up to some mighty fine deals. My recommendation as always, is to purchase the games through Xbox.com or your console, regardless if you’re going to play them or not. FREE IS FREE, folks. Example, I ‘purchase’ all the free Xbone games even though I currently don’t own one. Will I eventually? You bet your sweet ass, so those freebies will pay off when that console is unboxed.

Got it? Get the free games. Now here’s the list for October 2014! As usual, click the title to be taken to the game’s Xbox page for purchase/review.

 

XBOX 360

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (October 1-15) – $19.99 ERP Metacritic 88

Battlefield: Bad Company 2, brings the award-winning Battlefield gameplay to the forefront of Xbox 360 console with best-in-class vehicular combat and unexpected “Battlefield moments.” Vehicles like the ATV and a transport helicopter allow for all-new multiplayer tactics on the Battlefield. You can compete in four-player teams in two squad-only game modes, fighting together to unlock exclusive awards and achievements. Battles are set across expansive maps, each with a different tactical focus. The game also sees the return of the B Company squad in a more mature single-player campaign.

 

Darksiders II (October 16-31) – $39.99 ERP Metacritic 83

Darksiders II, which continues the series’ emphasis on huge environments, exploration, and a deep and rewarding story. Combine that with fantastic voice acting, impressive visuals, and a huge variety of procedurally generated loot (not to mention character-building options), and you’ll quickly find yourself enraptured by Darksiders II’s depth and top-notch game design. Did we mention you get to play as Death himself? Yeah.

 

XBOX One

Chariot (All month) – $14.99 ERP Metacritic (Unreleased)

Chariot, the newest ID@Xbox game from Canadian developers Frima, is a couch co-op platformer that can be played alone or with a friend. Players take the role of the brave Princess or her faithful Fiancé as they maneuver the departed king’s coffin-on-wheels through 25 levels set in five vibrant underground environments, with his majesty’s ghost giving them a piece of his mind every step of the way. Filled to the brim with emergent physics-based gameplay, Chariot offers hours of exciting exploration, fast-paced ride sequences and mountains upon mountains of loot!
