Last Chance: Claim The Xbox Live Gold Games For October 2020 Before They're Gone
October’s Xbox Live Games With Gold offering features horror games and two offbeat choices.
The Xbox Games With Gold for October 2020 are timely and spooky. These games are available for all Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members as long as they're subscribers.
The first free game this month is the delightfully-named Slayaway Camp: Butcher's Cut, a campy '80s throwback where you play as a villain named Skullface as you try to terrify the camp counselors and guests in each of its isometric puzzles. It's available for the whole month of October. The second is Maid of Sker, a short-but-sweet British horror game in a similar vein as Amnesia and Resident Evil 7 that's available from today until November 15.
Thanks to the Xbox One's backward-compatibility--or if you're still playing on an Xbox 360--you can check out Costume Quest starting today. Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy was available earlier this month, but its availability has expired.
Xbox Game Pass will also add three new games in October, including Doom Eternal, so check that out too.
