October is nearly upon us, which not only means we’re one step closer to the end of the year and colder temperatures, but it also means a new slew of free games will become available on Xbox Live’s Games with Gold.
First up, Xbox One owners will be able to download the newest ID@Xbox game from Canadian developers Frima Studios, Chariot. The game is described by its developer as a “couch co-op platformer” that can either be played alone or with a friend. Players will take the role of either the Princess or her Fiance as they help maneuver the deceased king’s “coffin-on-wheels” through a total of 25 levels set across of a total of 5 underground environments. Along the way, the ghost of the dead king will offer his “valuable” input on your adventure, many of which don’t completely help.
Xbox 360 owners will be treated to a free copy of Battlefield: Bad Company starting October 1st and ending on October 15. Darksiders II takes over on October 16 and will continue to be available for free until October 31st.
As usual, you need to be an Xbox Live Gold member in order to take advantage of the Games with Gold promotion.
