Plus word on Games With Gold too.
Moving on! Double Fine’s cult classic action-strategy-comedy thing Brütal Legend, which sees Jack Black rampaging across a mysterious fantasy world infused with heavy metal music iconography, comes to Xbox One on 8th October. Additionally, colourful turn based-tactical RPG Ikenfell comes to Xbox One and PC on the same day.
Rounding off October’s currently announced Game Pass additions, 8th October also sees the arrival of Turn 10 Studios’ acclaimed racer Forza Motorsport 7 for Android, Xbox One, and PC, a game that Eurogamer’s Oli Welsh called “a dazzling, expansive and engaging” in his Recommended review back in 2017.
As for Games with Gold on Xbox One, it’s a particularly – appropriately – spooky month. Slayaway Camp, which offers up an unexpected but remarkably effective blend of Sokoban-style puzzler and 80s slasher movie aesthetic is available from 1st-31st October; fondly remembered Zelda-like third-person action romp Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is available from 1st-15th October; Double Fine’s Hallowe’en-themed RPG-lite adventure Costume Quest is claimable from 16th-30th October, and finally, Welsh-folklore-inspired stealth horror Maid of Sker can be snagged from 16th October-15th November.
