There might be no free lunch in this world, but this does not mean that Xbox Live Games with Gold does not offer you four free games every single month with your subscription.

Four more titles have been revealed for the Xbox Live Games with Gold October 2016 free games lineup, and all four of them are available for download. Certainly membership has its privileges, and with Xbox Live Games with Gold, this adage holds true. As long as you subscribe to the Xbox Live Gold membership, you are eligible to enjoy a couple of Xbox 360 titles, while another two Xbox One games will be made available for free.
Basically, the Xbox One owners will end up with four titles, as it boasts of the Backwards Compatibility feature that will allow the current generation console handle titles from the Xbox 360 as well. Basically, Xbox Live Gold members who are rocking to the older Xbox 360 will be able to download the off-road racing title called MX vs ATV Reflex, which hails from the folks over at Rainbow Studios.

MX vs ATV Reflex
MX vs ATV Reflex is available for free download, although you have 10 more days which you will be able to do so as the free game offer ends this coming October 15. The title costs is priced at $19.99 a pop, and if you have a penchant for some adrenaline pumping riding in real life, then this virtual title will definitely appeal to such a crowd. In MX vs ATV Reflex, you will race on motocross bikes or all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), while events such as free ride and champion sport track are part of the package.

I Am Alive

The survival game I Am Alive is obviously set in a post-apocalyptic era, where everyone who lives there are extremely violent since it is a case of every (wo)man for him/herself, no doubt triggered by the fact that there is extremely limited supplies. I Am Alive will be an Xbox 360 title which will be made available from October 16th onward all the way to the end of this month, so do make sure you pencil in the correct dates into the calendar.

Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings
The other title that Xbox One gamers can look forward to for free would be Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, which is free for the entire month of October. Procrastinators would definitely find this pretty nifty, since you still have what -- 25 more days to go before the free offer ends? Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings is an arcade baseball simulator which also happens to be Polygon's 2014 Sports Game of the Year, so a two year old title with such an accolade ain’t too shabby. Look at it this way -- at least it is free, and you do not have to fork out $19.99 for it. There are different modes in the game like solo play, 2v1, 2v2 and teams against AI.

The Escapist
Last but not least, The Escapist is a strategy role-playing title that was developed by Mouldy Toof Studios. The title will arrive with a 16-bit graphic style, which will see more focus made on the game objectives compared to the visuals. It will retail for $19.99 normally, although for a month from October 16th to November 15th, Xbox Live Games with Gold subscribers will be able to get it for free.

Are October's titles worth your time?
