On Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download Battlefield 1 ($39.99ERP) for free during the month of November. Race The Sun ($9.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from November 16th to December 15th.
On Xbox 360, starting November 1st, Assassins Creed ($19.99 ERP) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through November 15th. Then on November 16th, Xbox Live Gold Members can download Dantes Inferno ($14.99 ERP) for free through November 30th.
If you want to know a little bit more about the games on offer, here's a round-up for you:
• Battlefield 1
The highly acclaimed first-person shooter, Battlefield 1, is coming to Games with Gold! Fight to survive in the adventure-filled single-player campaign or join up to 64 players in epic multiplayer battle. Destructive environments, dynamic weather conditions, and vehicle-based combat in land, sea, and air are yours to experience as you dominate the battlefield.
• Race the Sun
Test your coordination and reflexes in Race the Sun. Inspired by arcade games of the past, short games sessions are mixed with nerve-wracking tension and pure fun as you hurtle your solar-powered craft at breakneck speeds in a race against time. The rules are simple: Dont crash, stay in the light, and dont slow down!
• Assassins Creed
Plug yourself back into the Animus in the game that started the franchise in Assassins Creed. Relive the adventures of your assassin ancestor, Altaïr, at the start of the centuries-long battle between the Assassins and the Templars over the mysterious artifact, the Apple of Eden.
• Dantes Inferno
Begin your epic quest of vengeance and redemption in Dantes Inferno. Based on the classic poem, rescue the soul of your beloved Beatrice from the Nine Circles of Hell in this fast-paced action title. To succeed, youll need to confront fierce monsters, hideous demons, and your own personal sins.
For those unfamiliar with how Games with Gold works – perhaps for anyone who only got their first Xbox in the last month – here's a quick explainer:
Every month Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games – two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360.
Typically, Games With Gold includes two titles available for a period of two weeks and another two available for a month. It can get confusing and you don't want to accidentally miss out on downloading a great game, so it's worth marking the dates down on your calendar to ensure you don't miss out.
Equally, you shouldn't forget that two of the games included are from the Xbox 360 era, and that means both titles can be played on your Xbox One thanks to the console's backwards compatibility features.
Plus, now that the Xbox One has a dedicated Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store, you can easily search for, find, and download these games should you forget to download them for free during Games with Gold.
