Games With Gold

Major Nelson has revealed Microsoft’s Games with Gold for October. If you haven’t gotten around to playing The Walking Dead yet, you no longer have a reason to hold out.

For the Xbox 360, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is available for the first half of the month – October 1st through 15th. After that, 360 owners can download the entire first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead for free – October 16th through the 31st. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, but The Walking Dead was nominated for numerous Game of the Year awards back in 2012.

On the Xbox One half of things, the first season of The Walking Dead is available there too. However, the Xbox One version also comes with the season two prelude, “400 Days”. The Walking Dead is available via Games with Gold from October 16th through November 16th.

The first portion of the month sees Valiant Hearts: The Great War hit the Xbox One for free. The Xbox One version currently resides at 81 on Metacritic. You can grab that title anytime the entire month of October.

As usual, we’ll see you next month for the November reveals of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program.

Outside of his passion for the gaming industry, he’s also an avid sports enthusiast (New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies mainly) and enjoys quality/popular TV shows and movies.
