Game Pass Ultimate's Games With Gold selections are available for the month of October. With the news from July that Xbox 360 games will no longer be a part of the Games With Gold program, the selection is half its size. As Backwards Compatibility reached its limit of original Xbox and 360 titles, it was clear that the changes were coming, even when fans have always had checkered opinions about Games With Gold.
Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will have access to the resource-managing survival title from 5 Lives Studios, Windbound. Also available is the real time strategy simulator, Bomber Crew Delux Edition. Just like PlayStation's offerings, nothing in the line of the Halloween spirit for October.
Windbound (Available October 1st - 31st) Washed up on an uncharted island, you must use your will and skill to survive! Play as Kara, shipwrecked on the Forbidden Islands with nothing but what you can build or find. You’ll need to craft weapons and tools to survive. Spend time building a new boat which you can use in an immersive tactile sailing experience to reach the other islands. Explore the hidden history of each island to unlock their mysteries. Enjoy this delightfully surprising game that takes the survival genre in a totally new direction.
Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition (Available October 16 - November 15) Listen up fliers! We’re recruiting you to take on extremely high-risk missions in this World War II strategic flying and bombing game. Once you’re up in the air, danger is everywhere. It’s up to you to manage the fuel, ammo, and hydraulics while trying to avoid enemy gunners. Even the weather can bring you down. Keep your crew safe and focused and bring home victory. Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition includes the original Bomber Crew plus the Secret Weapons and USAAF DLC, so there’s plenty of flying to be done.
