As of today, there are two new titles available for free to Xbox Gold members. Of course, the games are only available to download for Gold members and otherwise they remain at their set price. This month has already seen the release of Tembo the Badass Elephant and Disney’s Bolt. Bolt was originally an Xbox 360 game and has now returned to its normal listing. Fortunately, the new downloadable game from the Xbox 360 archives is worthy competition.
The two games available today are Friday the 13th: The Game and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge. Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge replaces Bolt as the available Xbox 360 game and is a hack and slash adventure. Friday the 13th: The Game is perhaps the most notable title, as the survival horror game has steadily created a loyal audience.
Friday The 13h: The Game sold 2 million units rapidly and with updates has proceeded to grow. The game is available until the 15th of November giving players plenty of time to download the game. As usual, players can simply save the game to their account rather than making room on their console immediately. However, some may want to play the game and experience its creepier aspects during the Halloween season. Friday The 13th is a perfectly timed arrival for those looking to get a good scare.
Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge is available on Xbox Live Gold until October 31st. Many will be happy to experience a flash from the past and a chance to go on a ninja adventure. The game follows the protagonist of the Ninja Gaiden series, Ryu, and his companion Ayane. The objective of the game is to take down a terrorist group that is being led by a mysterious alchemist. The Xbox One backward compatibility program has made this title available for now.
Many will enjoy being Jason and terrorizing Camp Crystal Lake this Halloween. While others may try going around the survival route as an online player tries to hunt them down. Alongside some ninja-based hacking and slashing, Gold members have plenty to enjoy this month. Players will be glad that Xbox Live’s crashes seem to be in the past so that they can get back to enjoying the online experience.
