There’s a bit of a Halloween theme to October’s Games with Gold, as you’d expect. As ever, these games are only “free” if you have an active Xbox Live Gold membership.

October’s Games with Gold are:

Xbox One

  • Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut (October 1-31)
  • Maid of Sker (October 16-November 15)

Xbox 360 (compatible with Xbox One)

  • Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy (October 1-15)

  • Costume Quest (October 16-31)


  • Am I the only one who thinks Games with Gold is probably something that is going to be quietly discontinued soon as MS shifts focus to Game Pass?

    I mean neither console maker has said anything (so far) about next gen offerings of this service, so maybe I’m just speculating, but it just seems these offerings aren’t front of mine for MS. I used to hang out for the next months game announcements but now with Game Pass, I saw this today and went ‘oh yeah, October is soon’, not ‘Yes! New games to play’.
