With October coming around the bend next week, it was only a matter of time before Microsoft revealed its Xbox Live Games With Gold for the month. And now fans know what’s coming their way. And it’s Jason Voorhees?
Yep, just in time for Halloween, Friday the 13th the Game will highlight October’s freebies for Xbox Live Gold members. But Ryu Hayabusa is also along for the ride, along with a famous Disney mutt and a bad-ass elephant.
Let’s go over each of the titles that will be available as part of Xbox Live Games With Gold for October. Grab these while you can!
Tembo the Badass Elephant – Oct. 1-31
First up is Sega’s side-scrolling action game Tembo the Badass Elephant, which becomes available at the beginning of the month. In it, players control this well-armed creature as he rescues hostages and takes down baddies with his weapons and elephant abilities. Not a bad game at all.
Disney’s Bolt- Oct. 1-15
Based on the Disney animated film of the same name, Bolt puts you in control of the superpowered pup (and his friends) as they take down criminals.
Friday the 13th the Game- Oct. 16-Nov. 15
Jason’s coming – just in time for Halloween! In Friday the 13th the Game, players can either take on the iconic role of the slasher or the campers he’s coming across as they see who comes out on top. It’s a multiplayer treat that’s perfect for those late-night spooks!
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge- Oct. 16-31
A “director’s cut” of the original release, Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge pits Ryu Hayabusa against his greatest threat yet – a supernatural enemy that curses his arm alongside his Dragon Sword. In a quest to survive, Ryu must carve his way through several enemies. A true challenge for those that love Ninja Gaiden games!
For those that aren’t an Xbox Live Gold member yet, Microsoft is currently offering an Ultimate promotion, with the first month going for just $2. It’s a great time to hop on!
