This month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to add Chariot to their XBox One library. In its October press release, Microsoft said:
“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.”
Chariot is available for download from Oct. 1 to 31 on Xbox One.
Crimson Dragon will continue to be available for Xbox One users, so if you haven’t already (this is the 3rd month running for this game, so I doubt it), you can still download the game for free.
On the Xbox 360 sides of things. The scene looks a lot better. Battlefield : Bad Company 2 will be available for Download for all XBox 360 owners who have a Xbox Live Gold membership. This is a first-person shooter game suitable for players who enjoy vehicular battles. This time, players can use ATVs as well as transport helicopters on the Battlefield for a new level of multiplayer experience. In addition, the B Company squad is also returning in the sequel of the award-winning single-player game.
From the 15th of the month, gamers will have the chance to download Darksiders 2. The Open world RPG published by now defunct THQ, was the second game in the Darksiders franchise and put you in the shoes of Death; on a mission to clear the name of his Brother War from the first game. You get to clear hordes of enemies with your scythes, and need to solve some interesting platforming puzzles.
It does pay to be an X-Box 360 owner these days, the same can’t be said for XBox One owners though. One free game per month is barely competing with PSN Plus these days which offered 3 free games for the PS4 including DriveClub. However with ID@Xbox on the rise, I do expect Microsoft to have a much more robust library of games to choose from.
One can only hope.
