Xbox Games with Gold October lineup offers just two games

Heidi Nicholas - September 29th 2022

The lineup for October's Games with Gold is here — this is the first lineup since phasing out free Xbox 360 games, but it seems that limits our options to two games.

Games with Gold used to offer about four titles each month, but it looks like we're not getting anything extra in place of the Xbox 360 games that have been phased out: October's Games with Gold offers two titles; Windbound and Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition.

Xbox Games with Gold for October 2022

Windbound will be available for the whole month of October, from October 1st to the 31st. Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition will be available from October 16th to November 15th. All together, October's Games with Gold have an overall worth of $44.98 and 2,000 Gamerscore.

Windbound is the highest-rated of the two, with a rating of 3.44/5. Only 1% of its over 900 players on TrueAchievements have completed the game, and their time played ranges from 32 hours to 131. Bomber Crew is in a similar position with a rating of 3.43/5 and 2% of the over 23,000 TrueAchievements members playing it having completed it. Bomber Crew shows a shorter completion estimate of around 15-20 hours.

There's still a little time for September's Games with Gold, with Gods Will Fall and Portal 2 available until tomorrow, and Double Kick Heroes available until October 15th.
