Xbox Live Games With Gold for October includes Overcooked and Hitman: Blood Money

Step into the kitchen with next month's Games With Gold lineup for Xbox One and Xbox 360.


Earlier on Wednesday, PlayStation unveiled its lineup for its October PlayStation Plus freebies. Shortly afterwards, Xbox did the same for its Games With Gold lineup for next month, revealing what players can expect for their Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles.

While Overcooked 2 released over the summer on various consoles, some grew curious about the original game. Fortunately, those people can now pick up the original Overcooked for free, starting on October 1. If those people build up frustration in the kitchen, they can take some of it out on hordes of demons in indie action-RPG Victor Vran, which becomes available on October 16.

Here's the full schedule for next month. As always, these games are free to all Xbox Live Gold members:

  • Overcooked! (Xbox One - $16.99 ERP): October 1 to 31
  • Victor Vran (Xbox One - $19.99 ERP): October 16 to November 15
  • Stuntman: Ignition (Xbox 360 - $14.99 ERP): October 1 to 15
  • Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox 360 - $19.99 ERP): October 16 to 31

As has been the case with recent Games With Gold offerings, the Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible and can be played on Xbox One. With a few days remaining in this month, be sure to pick up the Games With Gold for September while there's still time.

October will also be a big month for Xbox Game Pass, with the all-new Forza Horizon 4 leading the pack.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
