This October, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are set to receive four new titles as part of the Games with Gold service. The new batch of freebies includes a baseball simulation game, a strategic RPG game and more. Now, here are the free October 2016 games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. We'll also give this week's spotlight sale and discounts.
Microsoft's Lawrence "Major Nelson" Hryb announced last week the Xbox Live free games for October 2016. Based on the new line-up, it seems the Xbox team of Microsoft wants to introduce lesser-known games to its subscribers.
For Xbox One users, they can access Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings for the whole month of October. This baseball simulation game has simple controls and colorful graphics. Plus, its difficulty can be adjusted to any skill level, which is good for entry-level players. The season mode of the game is surprisingly deep. It has leveling system and stat tracking feature that keeps players glued to their seats.
Additionally, The Escapist is available for Xbox One gamers. This strategic RPG game gives a glimpse of prisoner's everyday life. In it, players can craft seemingly innocuous items to turn into useful tools to escape the prison.
Xbox 360 users, on the other hand, have access to MX vs. ATV Reflex, an off-road racing game released in December 2009. As the name suggests, the game offers the innovative Reflex controls. Rather than just controlling the bike and rider as one unit, players have to use both the left stick and right stick to control the bike and the rider. Aside from intuitive controls, the game has unique track design and many events to entice players.
I Am Alive is also a free game for Xbox 360 users. This survival game is set in a post-apocalyptic city. It puts players in the shoes of a lone survivor who searches for his lost family. However, in a review from IGN, the game scored very low. The reviewer said it has great ideas but the execution is poor.
Meanwhile, this week's discounts offer 50% off to Grand Theft Auto V bundles. Get the Grand Theft Auto V & Megalodon Shark Cash Card Bundle for only $80.00. In addition, Grand Theft Auto V & Whale Shark Cash Card Bundle now only costs $60.49.
There are also discounts for Borderlands 2 fans. From $30, the game's Season Pass is now available for only $6.
