Games with Gold for October 2017


As we start a new month in a couple of days it also means another set of free games for Gold members. As always, all Xbox One titles are yours to keep as long as you have an active Gold subscription while the 360 titles are yours even if you drop to Silver status. Both 360 titles are available to Xbox One owners through the backward compatibility program.

Starting off the month for Xbox One is Gone Home. This is a First-person mystery where you explore a home to find out why your family is missing. Picking up on the 16th is The Turing Test. Another First-Person game which takes place on a space station as you figure out puzzles with an energy gun.

Gone Home June 7, 1995. 1:15 AM. You arrive home after a year abroad. You expect your family to greet you, but the house is empty. Something’s not right. Where is everyone? And what’s happened here? Find out for yourself as you explore the house on Arbor Hill in the award-winning game that’s been called “a remarkable achievement” (IGN) and “the greatest video game love story ever told” (The New York Times).
The Turing Test The Turing Test is a first person puzzler that explores the phenomena of consciousness and challenges the meaning of human intuition. Take control of Ava Turing, an engineer for the International Space Agency (ISA), and progress through a narrated story of introspection and morality whilst uncovering the hidden mysteries of Europa. Delve into The Turing Test’s human interaction puzzles and arm yourself with logical and methodical thinking. Take on tests designed in such a way that only a human could solve them. In an evolving story based on mankind’s inherent need to explore, protect and survive; players search deeper into Europa’s ice crusted core and transcend the line between man and machine.

The 360 games pick up on the first with Rayman 3 HD. It’s your typical Rayman platformer, but unlike most of the previous free titles this one is not a side-scroller. And closing out the month will be Medal of Honor: Airborne on the 16th. A shooter based in WWII where you decide where to start, what objectives to tackle first and how you want to progress.

Rayman 3 Embark on a fantastic and humorous journey with Rayman and Globox to save the Crossroad of Dreams. Masterfully enhanced with eye-popping High Definition visuals and sounds, Rayman 3 HD is the definitive version of the Rayman classics “Rayman 3 Hoodlum’s Havoc”, and a must-play for all Rayman fans and platform adventure game enthusiasts. Run, Jump and punch your way through the 2 first levels of the game battling the mysterious Hoodlums and their minions.
Medal of Honor: Airborne Take to the skies in Medal of Honor Airborne, where your choices will turn the tide of WWII. Starting with your jump from a C-47, every choice you make can seal your fate. In the air, control your parachute to select the landing spot that brings you the greatest strategic advantage. On the ground, explore the open, vertical environment for positions that will provide you a tactical edge against your enemies. Then, head onto Xbox LIVE for furious multiplayer battles in three different modes, including all-new Airborne modes! You decide where to drop, you decide how to fight. It’s a different war every time.
