A fresh batch of Games with Gold titles will be available to download in November but they won’t include any new Xbox Series X support. With next month being the first to include the new next-gen console, fans had been wondering if Microsoft would be making changes to the subscription service. Sony has announced that they will be offering the first free PS5 game for PS Plus members next month. But for Xbox Series X adopters, the same won’t be the case for having a Games with Gold subscription.
Microsoft has confirmed that Aragami: Shadow Edition will be the first Xbox One game to go live in November, followed by Swimsanity! On November 16.
And for the classic lineup via Backward Compatibility, gamers will be able to download the original Xbox title, Full Spectrum Warrior and the Xbox 360 version of Lego Indiana Jones.
No changes have been announced regarding how Xbox Live Gold will function with the Xbox Series X, or if there will ever be free games from the console made available.
“Xbox Live Gold members will have exclusive access to these games for a limited time as part of Games with Gold,” the official description from Microsoft explains.
“With Xbox Live Gold, you get the most advanced multiplayer service, free games, and exclusive member discounts on games in the Microsoft Store — get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action or join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which includes all these fantastic benefits plus access to over 100 high-quality games with Xbox Game Pass.”
Full description for all four games being released in November can be found below:
Aragami: Shadow Edition
Embark on a dark journey full of blood and secrets. Including both the original game and its prequel, Nightfall, play as the undead assassin with the power to control the shadows. Dispatch your enemies utilizing a wide array of powers in the solo campaign, or team up with a friend in cross-platform online multiplayer as you put your stealth abilities to the test.
Unleash the insanity! Team up with four friends and deploy a variety of unique powerups and weapons, or battle it out against each other to be the last Mooba standing. With over 150 challenges across 8 gaming modes, the intensity doesn’t let up in this action-packed underwater co-op shooter.
Full Spectrum Warrior
Squad up and get ready for deployment in this classic Xbox title. What began as a training aid for the U.S. Army, ended up as a realistic Infantry-level urban warfare simulator. Command Alpha and Bravo squads using authentic infantry protocols, in an urban environment beset with danger around every corner.
Lego Indiana Jones
Put on your fedora, grab your whip, and search for fortune and glory. The Original Adventures takes the fun and creative construction of Lego and combines it with the non-stop action of the classic films. Build, battle, and brawl your way through all your favorite cinematic moments in the tongue-in-cheek Lego style.
