September is drawing to a close, meaning that gamers with an Xbox Live Gold membership are eager to learn which free games the month of October will bring. For those who are uninitiated, Microsoft offers a monthly reward service for its paying Xbox Live members, discounting four separate games by 100% during specific time frames. Both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One receive two games each, generally unique from one another, although Xbox One owners are granted access to the Xbox 360 titles as well through backwards compatibility.
Kicking things off, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings (regularly $19.99 USD) will be available all month long from October 1 through the 31, while The Escapists (normally $19.99 USD) will be available for free from October 16 until November 15.
For Xbox 360 owners, MX vs ATV Reflex (normally $29.99 USD) will be free of charge from October 1 until 15, at which point the Xbox Live Arcade title I Am Alive (regularly 14.99 USD) will take its place until October 31.
