The Xbox Games With Gold for the month of October are timely and spooky, with Halloween-appropriate games leading the charge. These games are available for all Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members as long as they’re subscribers.
The first free game this month is the delightfully-named Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut, a campy ’80s throwback where you play as a villain named Skullface as you try to terrify the camp counselors and guests in each of its isometric puzzles. It’s available for the whole month of October. The second is Maid of Sker, a short-but-sweet British horror game in a similar vein as Amnesia and Resident Evil 7 that’s available from today until November 15.
