It’s that time again for freebies if you’re an active Gold subscriber to Xbox with some classic Xbox360 treats in the mix.
Right now Xbox One owners can download Battlefield 1 during the month of November. Which takes players back to World War I, taking you through historic scenarios that took place during the conflict while giving some that Battlefield style of hard hitting action. The stories are shorter than I would’ve expected but delightful in a way I didn’t expect. A much needed hark back to the original Call of Duty games which no doubt inspired it. Also making a re-appearance is Assassin’s Creed, the original game that inspired the franchise of ongoing yearly games. Now while this ones dated a bit especially when the games fantastic cities fall short in the later part of the game to simple tick list of actions you need to complete, the sub story with Desmond is a great addition, and one that should you complete the game has a great reveal at the end. You can see why it charmed so many reviewers of the day, and to me still has great memories!
Also available until November 15 is a remnant from October’s Games with Gold: Victor Vran. a Diablo-like action-RPG that takes much from the Blizzard game while trying to add it’s own twist, forgettable yes.. but if you like the genre, it’s worth a look.
And after November 15? you’ll be able to take to the skies with the endless flying game ‘Race the Sun’ for Xbox One and download the ‘God of War’ rival ‘Dante’s Inferno’ which is always worth a revisit!
Games With Gold have been upping their offerings each month with some great titles, so Here’s hoping December will bring something special to the mix!
