Games With Gold: Last Chance For These Free Xbox One Games For October 2019
Here are your October freebies.
October has almost passed us by, which means the free games for Xbox Live Gold members will switch soon. October's Games With Gold freebies include, as usual, two Xbox One and two Xbox 360 games. You need to hurry if you want to claim them, as November's free games are about to take center stage.
First up is Tembo the Badass Elephant, a 2015 2D side-scrolling platformer released on Xbox One. You'll control an elephant called Tembo, who can smash into objects, stomp on enemies and tanks, use water in his trunk to put out fires, and more as he makes his way through Shell City, intent on stopping a military force called the Phantom. Tembo the Badass Elephant will be free all month long.
As of October 16, you can also claim Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, an action-adventure Xbox 360 game starring Ryu Hayabusa, the master ninja from the previous Ninja Gaiden games. An upgraded rerelease of Ninja Gaiden 3, Razor's Edge introduces a host of new playable characters, who each bring their own unique ninja abilities. This game is also available on Xbox One due to backward-compatibility, and it'll be free until October 31.
Friday the 13th: The Game is the fourth and final free game available for Xbox Live Gold members this month. This third-person survival horror game allows for up to eight people to play in one session, with seven people controlling camp counselors and another person controlling serial killer Jason Voorhees. Friday the 13th: The Game is available for free on Xbox One for a full month, from October 16 to November 15.
