Microsoft recently revealed Xbox Live’s free games for Gold members next month. Also, its weekend event called Multiplayer All-Access is currently happening.
It’s not a trick. Xbox is definitely serious when it comes to giving treats and freebies. For instance, this weekend’s Multiplayer All-Access event is allowing Xbox Live members to play games online for free with their friends. The weekend event, which started Thursday, October 27, gives Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners with Xbox Live subscription to enjoy multiplayer gaming for popular titles such as GTA Online, Battlefield 1, and FIFA 17.
Another exciting offer specifically available to Xbox One owners with Xbox Live membership is a chance to try out Borderlands:The Handsome Collection for free while it is not officially on sale yet in the official game store for the Microsoft consoles.
Fans of the role-playing first-person shooter video game can head to the Xbox Games Store to download, at no expense at all, the special compilation edition which includes Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-sequel. It will give them access to the full game as well as the free online play, according to Attack of the Fanboy.
As to what Xbox One gamers can expect from the free trial of the Handsome Collection, a post by Major Nelson noted the following.
“Experience the highest performance and highest fidelity graphics for any Borderlands game ever on console, and invite your friends over to enjoy the game’s four-player split-screen mode, all in stunning high definition.”
Gamers interested in taking advantage of this weekend offering should hurry up as tomorrow, October 30, is going to be the last day of the Multiplayer All-Access Event with a free trial of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for Xbox One owners.
Xbox Live’s Games With Gold promotion for October is also expiring soon. This means the currently free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games are going back to its normal price after this month. Xbox 360 users still have a few days left to download their free copy of I am Alive, a survival video game from Ubisoft that was first released in 2012.
On the other hand, Xbox One owners with Xbox Live Gold subscription are still eligible to download Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings at no cost until October 31, according to a previous post by the Inquisitr. Usually priced at $20, this free baseball simulation video game features “ultra-tight batting/pitching mechanics, a novel difficulty system dubbed ‘Ego,’ and a deep baseball simulation with accurate physics and comprehensive statistics tracking,” according to its Microsoft’s product page.
Also part of the list of free games for October is The Escapists. Available on Xbox One, the strategy game developed by Mouldy Toof Studios had its $0 price tag since October 16. But unlike I Am Alive and Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, The Escapists will not revert to its usual price anytime soon as Games With Gold is offering this game for free until November 15.
It will join the new set of free games for Xbox Live Gold members to be offered starting next month. Following the normal routine, Microsoft will give two Xbox One and two Xbox 360 titles for free in November.
Microsoft announced through Xbox Wire that in celebration of the game’s release on Xbox One this November 1, the highly-anticipated Super Dungeon Bros, a new ID@Xbox title is coming to Games with Gold. Xbox Live Gold members will have the chance to grab their own copy of this game (regularly priced at $20) for free starting Tuesday and until the last day of the month.
Also free for Xbox One next month is Murdered: Soul Suspect, a dark, supernatural detective thriller game featuring a unique gameplay twist, which is for players to solve their own murder from the afterlife.
Furthermore, Xbox 360 players with Gold membership can own Monkey Island: SE (November 1-15) and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (November 16-30) for $0 via Microsoft’s Games with Gold. Take note that these games will also be playable on Xbox One through the Backward Compatibility feature.
