October Xbox Games With Gold Gets Spooky for Halloween

Halloween month is almost upon us and that means spoooooky games!

If you’re an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate members, that means you can claim Games With Gold each month. Seeing as October is a month for scares, October’s Games With Gold offerings are getting spooky.

Available to download for free in October are:

  • Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut: This title pays homage to classic ‘80s horror. You play as Skullface, a villain who is actually pretty adorable. Much like classic horror villain Jason, Skullface’s goal is to terrorise camp counsellors and any other victims he comes across. (Available October 1 to 31)
  • Maid of Sker: Set in a remote hotel with a terrible history, players must use stealth to avoid enemies that can find you through the sounds you make. (Available October 16 to November 15)
  • Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy: In this original Xbox title, you play as Sphinx as he embarks on a 3D platforming journey trying to stop the evil plans of the god Set. (Available October 1 to 15)
  • Costume Quest: In Costume Quest players must collect magical costumes to help them level up their hero as they fight through monsters that have taken over their neighbourhood. (Available October 16th to 31st)

Look out for these titles starting tomorrow October 1st, and happy spooks everyone!
