Xbox Live Games with Gold for October Revealed

Xbox have revealed the Games with Gold that will be released in October. With an interesting mixture of games, both Xbox One and Xbox 360 get their hands on two quality titles.

For the Xbox One, they will be getting Valiant Hearts: The Great War and The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season. Xbox 360 will be getting Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and The Walking Dead, just like the current generation users. It is worth noting though that only the Xbox One version of The Walking Dead comes with the 400 Days DLC.

Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season is the game that catches my interest, as this is the title that really made gamers notice them. They had released games of the same style before, but this was the one that fans really connected to. Making a point of tapping into the emotional power of choice it really caught the attention of the players.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War looked to bring about another emotional connection, this time by bringing World War 1 stories to the people playing the game. A platform game that looked to apply a stronger narrative to the characters it grew enough of a fan base to make it well worth a try when it is released free.

The inclusion of Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is an interesting edition, especially after the release of Phantom Pain. With Ground Zeroes working as a prequel to the main game, it is questionable how many will venture into this one again. For those who haven’t made the leap into the Metal Gear Solid 5 games though, this may be the perfect chance to check Ground Zeroes out.

With the games being free, and games that feel a little meatier in content, this is yet another good month for Xbox Live and Microsoft’s consoles.
