Games with Gold for November Lands a Day Early

Posted on October 31, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One with 5 Comments

Happy Halloween! Microsoft has delivered the first two Games with Gold titles for November a day early. And both of them—Battlefield 1 and the original Assassin’s Creed—-are must-haves.

As a reminder, the Games with Gold promotion provides free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games each month for those with Xbox Live Gold memberships. All Xbox 360 games in this promotion also work on Xbox One in Backward Compatibility mode too. So Xbox One users with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are technically getting at least four free games each month.

Here’s what’s new this month. Well, next month. You get the idea.

Xbox One

Battlefield 1
Normal price: $39.99
Free availability: November 1 to November 30

Description: The highly acclaimed first-person shooter, Battlefield 1, is coming to Games with Gold! Fight to survive in the adventure-filled single-player campaign or join up to 64 players in epic multiplayer battle. Destructive environments, dynamic weather conditions, and vehicle-based combat in land, sea, and air are yours to experience as you dominate the battlefield.

Race the Sun
Normal price: $9.99
Free availability: November 16 to December 15

Description: Test your coordination and reflexes in Race the Sun. Inspired by arcade games of the past, short games sessions are mixed with nerve-wracking tension and pure fun as you hurtle your solar-powered craft at breakneck speeds in a race against time. The rules are simple: Don’t crash, stay in the light, and don’t slow down!

Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Assassin’s Creed
Normal price: $19.99
Free availability: November 1 to November 15

Description: Plug yourself back into the Animus in the game that started the franchise in Assassin’s Creed. Relive the adventures of your assassin ancestor, Altaïr, at the start of the centuries-long battle between the Assassins and the Templars over the mysterious artifact, the Apple of Eden.

Dante’s Inferno
Normal price: $14.99
Free availability: November 16 to November 30

Description: Begin your epic quest of vengeance and redemption in Dante’s Inferno. Based on the classic poem, rescue the soul of your beloved Beatrice from the Nine Circles of Hell in this fast-paced action title. To succeed, you’ll need to confront fierce monsters, hideous demons, and your own personal sins.

    Good month.

    Also want to point out that it is already November 1 in Australia by the time Americans start waking up. So not sure the deals are a day early, might just be the way the store works, that it does not roll with the timezones.

      In reply to madthinus: is still showing last months games for me (as at 8am on Nov 1). Who knows what "logic" they use to roll out, probably US early and everyone else late, it's how they roll. I'm guessing they might start showing at 11am (since we are currently UTC+11 with DST on east coast).

    Can these free Xbox one titles be played on PC also?
