The Xbox Games With Gold list for October is here. If you have Xbox Live Gold during the month of October, you’ll have free access to Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut, Maid of Sker, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, and Costume Quest.
Not all four games are available at once. Both Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut and Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy can be downloaded from October 1-15 and then Maid of Sker and Costume Quest from October 16-31.
All four of these titles are free for any member of Xbox Live Gold, so be sure to download them. If you’re not familiar with these games, Xbox Wire gives a little detail about each one, which can be found below.
Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut
Paying homage to classic ‘80s trash horror, play as Skullface, an adorably demented villain, out to terrorize camp counselors and any other blocky victims he finds. New dimensions of absurd terror and over 300 fiendish puzzles await in this isometric puzzle game.
Maid of Sker
Do not panic, don’t even breathe! Set in a remote hotel with a macabre and gory history, use stealth tactics to stay alive against a cult of sound-based enemies. Inspired by chilling tales in Welsh folklore, do your best to survive and brave the nightmares of the Quiet Ones.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
Inspired by the mythology of ancient Egypt, play as Sphinx, and his reluctant hero friend, the Mummy, as they travel the world to foil the evil plans of Set. Use stealth, agility, and special powers to find the stolen magical crowns of Egypt and save the world.
Collect super-powered magical costumes and level up your hero in the monster-filled neighborhoods of Auburn Pines. Complete numerous quests, build up your party, and take down evil in the Halloween tale that will capture the imagination of kids and the kids-at-heart.
Of course, you could always give Xbox Game Pass a chance if you’re looking for even more games to play. That is where all of the Microsoft first-party games hang out. However, Xbox Games with Gold still provides an excellent value for players and if you have Xbox Live Gold it’s worth downloading these games.
You also have a few days left to grab September’s games: Tom Clancy’s The Division, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, and Armed and Dangerous. Be sure to grab those before the month is over or forever hold your peace.
