We are already in mid-September, which means that all Xbox live Games with Gold this month are already available for players to download for free. For those who missed Microsoft’s announcement, September’s Games with Gold consists of Warhammer: Chaosbane, Mulaka, Zone of the Enders HD Collection, and Samurai Shodown 2.
Luckily for Microsoft, this month’s Xbox Games with Gold was received positively by its subscribers, mostly for the titles offered for the Xbox 360. In the coming weeks, Microsoft is expected to announce next month’s list of free games, and here are the titles that should be added to Xbox Games with Gold in October to maintain the positive reception the program has received since August.
Indoor space (Xbox One)
Headlining this wishlist for October Xbox games with Gold is Interior space, an action-adventure game developed by PolyKnight Games released in 2018. It should be noted that Interior space is the studio’s first game and draws inspiration from other character-focused titles such as Journey and Cultivate the house. Shortly after its release, Interior space has received positive reviews thanks to the eerie worlds players can explore and its impressive visuals.
Shovel Knight (Xbox One)
The next step is Knight Shovel, a side-scrolling 2D platform game developed and published by Yacht Club Games. After a successful crowdfunding campaign, Knight Shovel was released in 2014, offering gamers nostalgic 8-bit graphics. Players control the titular character as he collects treasure and battles the Order of the Non-Quarter. Knight Shovel received rave reviews and a puzzle derivative title called Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon is currently in development and should be released this winter.
Alan Wake (Xbox 360)
Next month, Remedy Entertainment will release a remastered version of Alan wake, first released in 2010. While the upcoming remaster will surely bring massive improvements to the original game, some players will likely want to check out the original. Especially if it will be offered for free as part of Xbox Game with Gold, just to compare how different it is from the remaster.
For the uninitiated, the original Alan wake received positive reviews from players and critics alike thanks to its impressive visuals, deep storytelling, and great pace and atmosphere. Shortly after its release in 2010, Alan wake won first place in Time Magazine’s list of the 10 best video games of the year. Of course, many would probably prefer the remastered version of Alan wake which will be released on October 5, but for those who haven’t played it yet, the original remains a must-have game.
For September, Microsoft added Enders Zone HD Collection at Xbox Games with Gold and is currently the most popular title on the entire list. Considering this, it would probably be a good move for Microsoft to also include another popular Konami franchise, which of course is, Solid metal gear. In 2011, Konami released Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, a package consisting of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
It is to highlight that Metal Gear Solid 2 and Solid 3 are among the most popular entries in the franchise, which is why this would undoubtedly lead to the success of the Games with Gold list next month. Not to mention that these games have never been released on the Xbox One, and while Xbox consoles offer backward compatibility, probably not all are willing to pay for these games since MGS 2 was released in 2001 and MGS 3 in 2004.
However, offering the collection free of charge as part of the Xbox live The Games with Gold program will surely capture the interest of Metal gear fans for years that Konami released a main line Metal gear Game. In addition, Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection is also a great way for a generation of gamers to experience these classic games.
