Xbox has another strong month of offerings for Gold subscribers.
Thanks to a blog update from Major Nelson, the official list of free games is finally here! Good news: the game’s are great! Check ’em out!
Being a new game, here’s a description of The Deer God from Steam:
“The Deer God is a breathtaking 3D pixel art adventure that will challenge your religion and your platforming skills. It’s a game about survival, reincarnation, and karma; all set in a breathtaking and unique 3D pixelized world.”
Tomb Raider is also a great choice by the Xbox team. With a little over two months until the launch of Rise of the Tomb Raider, this is a great way to garner interest in the incredible rebooted franchise. The Xbox 360 offerings are also decent if not a little dated. It was announced at Gamescom earlier this month that future 360 Games With Gold would work on Xbox One via Backward Compatiblity. What isn’t quite clear yet is if that goes into effect now while Back Compat is in beta with the Xbox Preview Program or if it starts when it goes public in November. I suppose that much will be clear in the next few days.
What do you think of September’s offering? Anything catch your eye? Are there any games you plan on skipping? Feel free to let me know in the comments or on Twitter!
