Another month, another Xbox Games With Gold announcement. Once again there are two Xbox One games and two backwards compatible Xbox 360 games up for grabs for those who have an Xbox Live Gold membership.

Starting with Games with Gold, Microsoft is breaking out the big guns with the first Xbox One game up for grabs. Battlefield 1's base game is available from November 1st to the 30th. Battlefield 1 takes place during World War 1 and features massive, 64  player battles filled with destructible buildings, vehicles and tons of weapons. Battlefield 5 comes out November 20th, 2018, so if you're new to the series you can get a taste of that it has to offer before the next one launches.

 

The second game, available from November 16th to December 15th, is Race the Sun. This is an arcade racer that was originally a flash game. Fly at high speeds while avoiding obstacles. When the sun sets, you die, so go fast and survive as long as you can.

The first Xbox 360 Games with Gold title up for grabs is Assassin's Creed. With the recent release of Odyssey, it might be a good time to play the game that started it all. You take the role of Altaïr, part of an order of assassins. Take out targets in the holy land, including Jerusalem and Damascus. There are also modern-day plot elements featuring Desmond Miles and the shady corporation Abstergo Industries.

 

Based on an epic poem written in the 14th century, the eponymous Dante's Inferno is an action game by the now-defunct Visceral Game. Dante'Inferno is a bloody hack and slash through the nine circles of Hell as the Templar makes a dark descent in an effort to save his lover Beatrice from Lucifer.

This month is full of some very high-profile offerings. Battlefield 1, Assassin's Creed and Dante's Inferno, are all AAA offerings that have plenty of content. Race the Sun is a unique and fun game to pick up in short bursts, so there's bound to be something for everyone to enjoy.

 

You still have a few days to pick up most of October's Games with Gold offerings. You can find out more about them here.
