Microsoft has announced all of the freebies coming to Games with Gold on Xbox One and Xbox 360 this October.

Headlining next month’s selection is Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry. This excellent hack ‘n’ slasher received critical acclaim upon its release but didn’t quite gel with hardcore fans.

Next up is Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Based on the iconic Lord of the Rings universe, this will be the perfect chance to catch up before Shadow of War drops.

All of these can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store so long as you maintain an active Xbox Live Gold membership. After that, they’ll remain in your digital library.

  • Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor: Oct 16 – Nov 15 (Xbox One)
