Microsoft revealed the free Xbox Games with Gold for October 2018, headlined by Overcooked for the Xbox One and Hitman: Blood Money for the Xbox 360.
The free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers fail to take advantage of the upcoming Halloween season, but the offerings for next month are still great titles that will be nice additions to any Xbox gamers' library.
Xbox Games With Gold For October 2018
Overcooked is a cooperative cooking game where players team up to serve dishes to customers in kitchens located in outrageous locations. Victor Vran, meanwhile, is an action RPG where players take control of the titular character in his quest to hunt down demons and save the cursed city of Zagoravia.
Overcooked will be available from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31, while Victor Vran will be available from Oct. 16 to Nov. 15. It should be noted, however, that the free Victor Vran will be the base version of the game, not Victor Vran: Overkill Edition, which includes two add-ons.
Meanwhile, for the Xbox 360, the free games for October 2018 are Hitman: Blood Money and Stuntman: Ignition.
Hitman: Blood Money is another entry in the assassination series, with players again controlling Agent 47 in missions that require precise planning and flawless execution. Stuntman: Ignition, on the other hand, runs at a much faster pace, with players trying to become the best Hollywood stunt driver with death-defying scenes.
Stuntman: Ignition will be up for downloads over the first half of October from Oct. 1 to Oct. 15. Hitman: Blood Money will then take its place in the second half, from Oct. 16 to Oct. 31. The two Xbox 360 games are also playable on the Xbox One through the console's Backward Compatibility feature.
Xbox Games With Gold For September 2018
Xbox One owners will still be able to download maximum security prison simulator Prison Architect until Sept. 30 and twin-stick shooter Livelock until Oct. 15. Xbox 360 owners who were not able to download LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars have already missed it but can still grab Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World until the end of the month.
