A little bit of spook and a little bit of cute for October.
October is pretty much here, and as always, it’s the spookiest month of the year due to Halloween. Who knows what Halloween will actually look like this year due to everything going on, but at the very least, Microsoft is putting on their most Halloween line up together for their Games with Gold for Xbox Live users.
For the entire month, Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut will be available for Xbox One users. The game is a bloody puzzle title where you control a masked killer out for revenge and to kill everyone in his path. From the 1st to the 15th, it’s a blast from the past with the original Xbox’s Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, an action game inspired by Egyptian myth. From the 16th to the 31st, you can get Double Fine’s cute send up to the Halloween holiday with the RPG Costume Quest, and for a bit of legit shock and horror, in that same time frame you can also get Maid of Sker, the most recent release of the line up that sees you try to sneak through various settings against murderous foes.
These games will begin going live starting tomorrow, October 1st. All titles will, of course, be redeemable and playable on all Xbox One systems for those with a Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate account.
