Since the introduction of Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s other subscription service, Xbox Live Gold and its Games with Gold program, appears to have fallen to the wayside a little bit. Still, for the month of October, Microsoft is offering those with Xbox Live Gold memberships a number of games suitable for the month of Halloween.
- Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut (Available October 1 to 31 on Xbox One)
- Maid of Sker (Available October 16 to November 15 on Xbox One)
- Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy (Available October 1 to 15 on Xbox One & Xbox 360)
- Costume Quest (Available October 16 to 31 on Xbox One & Xbox 360)
Slayaway Camp is an isometric puzzle game which sees you play as the villain. Over the course of 300 levels you will “play as Skullface, an adorably demented villain, out to terrorize camp counselors and any other blocky victims he finds.”
Maid of Sker is a first-person survival horror game, which sees you try to survive against “a cult of sound-based enemies” which are “Inspired by chilling tales in Welsh folklore.”
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is an original Xbox title which sees you “play as Sphinx, and his reluctant hero friend, the Mummy, as they travel the world to foil the evil plans of Set. Use stealth, agility, and special powers to find the stolen magical crowns of Egypt and save the world.”
The final game on offer is Costume Quest. Developed by Double Fine Productions and set during Halloween, players will “Collect super-powered magical costumes and level up your hero in the monster-filled neighborhoods of Auburn Pines. Complete numerous quests, build up your party, and take down evil in the Halloween tale that will capture the imagination of kids and the kids-at-heart.”
