The month of September is still a week from being over, yet Microsoft has already released its game roster for Xbox Live Games with Gold for October.
Xbox Live Games with Gold for October
Per usual, Microsoft has released four new game titles as part of its Xbox Live Games with Gold program. Two of these games would be dedicated for the Xbox 360, and the other two will be dedicated for Xbox One.
Microsoft has once again partnered with the best game publishers to deliver nothing, but top-notch game titles to service subscribers. The hit baseball simulator "Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings" and the prison simulator "The Escapists" will be bannering the Xbox One exclusive games.
The racing video game "MX vs ATV Reflex" will then headline the Xbox 360 games, along with the action adventure game "I Am Alive". Both Xbox 360 games will also be playable on Xbox One through Backward Compatibility.
'Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings'
Playable until the 30th of October, "Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings" brings a spectacular and comprehensive baseball simulation with a jovial, neighborly aesthetic. It perfectly blends realistic physics with difficulty control per player, allowing nuances from beginner players to play seamlessly with the veterans. The robust and responsive controls of the game also give a truly engaging gaming experience. "Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings" normally retails for $19.99 ERP.
This game tests the players' logical, practical, and critical thinking skills. Freedom can only be attained in "The Escapists" through a clever plan. The game gives a frolicsome look into prison life as the main objective is to successfully perform a prison break in this 8-bit aesthetic world. Do not underestimate the game though, as the simulation, strategy, stealth, and other surprises make the game really difficult at times. It will be available from October 16 to November 15 and normally retails for $19.99. ERP.
'MX vs ATV Reflex'
The "MX vs ATV Reflex" brings new tracks and mechanics to the franchise. It introduces the new Rider Reflex control system, wherein players can move the rider independently from the vehicle. This allows for proper leaning into tighter turns, pulling off sudden spins and slides, and smoothly stick landings. Also, the racing terrain gains some environmental adjustments, so deformations with every lap will be visible. "MX vs ATV Reflex" normally costs $29.99 ERP and will be available from October 1 to 15.
'I am Alive'
Available from October 16 to 31, the action adventure survival video game brings the players to a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world. Being the lone survivor of a global cataclysmic event that wiped out a huge percentage of the human race, the player must wander around and survive long enough in search of his or her family. This entails uncovering some secrets, dealing and crossing potentially harmful co-survivors, and conserving ammo. "I Am Alive" normally sells for $14.99 ERP.
