Xbox Live: Games with Gold October 2016 titles incoming

Just a quick reminder that for those with an Xbox Live Gold membership you will soon be able to get hold of some free games, as the October titles are around the corner.....

As with previous months, Xbox One owners will get two dedicated titles and two Xbox 360 titles via Backward Compatibility.

First up for Xbox One, October brings two ID@Xbox titles 'Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings' and Team17's, The Escapists. While the ID games may not be as impressive - on paper - as some of the previous months offerings, believe us when we say this that The Escapists is a brilliant game!

While on the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility), Xbox Live Gold members start the month with 'I Am Alive', and then you can grab MX vs ATV Reflex towards the latter part.

More specifically.....

Super Mega Baseball Extra Innings: Available from October 1-31st on Xbox One

The Escapists: Available from October 16- November 15th on Xbox One

MX vs ATV Reflex: Available from October 1-15th on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

I Am Alive: Available from October 16-31st on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

About:

Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings. This is a deep, detailed baseball simulation with a lighthearted, friendly look. Blending realistic physics, per-player difficulty control that allows beginners and seasoned vets to play together seamlessly, and tight, responsive controls, this is a baseball game you won’t want to miss!

The Escapists. Get a light-hearted glimpse into prison life with an eye towards escaping once and for all. Mixing simulation, strategy, stealth, and plenty of surprises, you may not want to live in The Escapists’ prisons, but you’ll definitely enjoy the visit.

MX vs ATV Reflex. With the revolutionary Rider Reflex control system, you can move your rider and vehicle independently, lean into tighter turns, pull off sudden spins and slides, and smoothly stick landings. Oh and did we mention that the very track itself will deform and change under you as you run each lap?

I Am Alive. After a worldwide cataclysmic event that wipes out most of the human race, you must explore a desolate city and try to survive long enough to find your family. Uncover secrets, deal with potentially deadly survivors, and intimidate your enemies into submission to conserve ammo… but be careful, some may call your bluff!

Note: Titles are available as free downloads for a limited time, for qualifying paid Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability.
