Here’s Your October Games with Gold Freebies

We were a wee bit late posting September’s Games with Gold update this month, but after a good old-fashioned motivational jump on the trampoline, we’re ready to get back on form.

October’s Games with Gold offerings have been announced by Xbox’s Major Nelson, and there are a few decent goodies up for grabs.

Leading the charge on Xbox One is Telltale’s critically acclaimed The Walking Dead: Season One. Oddly, the very same game is also being offered on the Xbox 360.

Ubisoft’s cracking historical Valiant Hearts will surely pluck at your heart-strings and induce a manly tear or two. It’s just as likely to induce a bit of rage as some of the puzzles can be a tad finicky, but it’s a splendid game and we highly recommend it.

For Xbox 360 owners there’s the aforementioned The Walking Dead: Season One along with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Pretty hand if you’ve not picked up Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain yet as it serves as a meaty prologue to The Phantom Pain’s events.

Not a bad haul in all, though the double offering of Telltale’s thriller will probably not go down all that well with those hoping for four fresh games across their Xbox consoles. Still, free is free.

You’ll need an active Xbox Live Gold membership to take advantage of the freebies, so make sure that your subscription is up to date.
