This October, all Xbox Live Gold members can pick up four free games courtesy of the Xbox Games with Gold program. This month’s offerings range from spooky to speedy to stomp-y to slash-y, if those last two are actual words, but on the bright side: free games!
As always, two games are Xbox One offerings, while the other two are Xbox 360 games that are playable on both 360 and One consoles thanks to the Backward Compatibility program. You also have a limited time frame to pick each game up in, so mark your calendars!
First up is Tembo the Badass Elephant, which is available from October 1st until October 31st on Xbox One.
Shell City is under siege and only one thing can save it: the peanut-chompin’, villain stompin’, Tembo the Badass Elephant. Under attack from the devastating forces of Phantom and their terrifying war machines, help the National Army defend the city by smashing, punching and butt-stomping the enemy. This action-adventure title weighs in at seven and a half tons of fun.
Next up is Disney Bolt, available from October 1st until October 15th on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Travel the globe and join Penny and her super dog, Bolt, as they try to save her dad from the evil Dr. Calico in Disney Bolt.

Don’t miss out on this family-friendly, action-adventure title for all ages.
In stark contrast to Disney Bolt is Friday the 13th: The Game, available from October 16th until November 15th on Xbox One.
Celebrate the spooky month of October with the horror title, Friday the 13th: The Game. Stalk, ambush and strike fear in the hearts of many as you take control of the legendary Jason Voorhees.

Last, but definitely not least, is Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, available from October 16th until October 31st on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
