Over the past several months, we haven’t had many game releases to occupy our time. That’s all beginning to change, with huge games like Destiny, Forza Horizon 2 and Shadow of Mordor either already out or coming soon, but the free Games with Gold have been doing a stellar job of tiding over Xbox owners in the interim.

October continues to build upon the increasingly impressive library of free games for Xbox Live subscribers with two classics on Xbox 360 and one brand new title from ID@Xbox on Xbox One.

Xbox 360 owners have Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Darksiders II to look forward to, both well-received sequels which should certainly warrant a download, even during the busy holiday season. If you’ve never played Bad Company 2, many Battlefield fans claim that it has some of the most fun multiplayer the series has ever seen. As for Darksiders II, not many action RPGs can compete with the combat of this series. It only got better the second time around.

Chariot is the Xbox One free game of the month, and like Super Time Force before it, Chariot is an indie game. It’s inclusion in Games with Gold next month will also mark its debut, so be sure to pick it up before it goes back to full price.
