Microsoft has announced the Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup for October 2022. There are two games this coming month: Windbound and Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition.
This is the first month without Xbox or Xbox 360 games. So instead of receiving the normal four free games this month, Microsoft is giving away two games as part of Xbox Games with Gold.
Here is the full lineup, including the dates for each game:
Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S
- Windbound (October 1 to 31)
- Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition (October 16 to November 15)
The first free game is Windbound. Here is a description:
Washed up on an uncharted island, you must use your will and skill to survive! Play as Kara, shipwrecked on the Forbidden Islands with nothing but what you can build or find. You’ll need to craft weapons and tools to survive. Spend time building a new boat which you can use in an immersive tactile sailing experience to reach the other islands. Explore the hidden history of each island to unlock their mysteries. Enjoy this delightfully surprising game that takes the survival genre in a totally new direction.
The second free game is Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition. Here is the description:
Bomber Crew is a World-war 2 strategic bombing sim, where completing the objective is just as important as keeping your crew alive, as death is permanent! Take to the skies in this immersive flight simulation where each mission is a high-risk expedition. Manage everything from fuel, ammo, hydraulics and more in your very own physics based Bomber, which can be customized with an array of liveries and paint jobs!
The Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup is free for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
