One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in October 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Add to your ever-growing collection of great games on Xbox thanks to October’s Games with Gold! Starting October 1 on Xbox One, play the emotionally gripping first-person narrative adventure game Gone Home: Console Edition. Then on October 16, take to the stars in the challenging sci-fi puzzle game The Turing Test.
Also in October for Xbox 360, and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility, the classic Xbox Live Arcade platformer Rayman 3 HD will be available to play, as well as the epic World War II first-person shooter Medal of Honor: Airborne.

Interactive storytelling is at the heart of this award-winning, genre-defining game. Imagine coming home after a year abroad to find none of your family home.

The Turing Test
Engage your logic skills for this first-person puzzler set on Jupiter’s moon, Europa. In The Turning Test, use your Energy Manipulation Tool (EMT) to transfer power in and out of many machines and giant structures that can help you as the narrative-focused story evolves.
Rayman 3 HD
The charming 3D platformer returns in high-def! Jump, fly, and fight your way through the fantastic world of Rayman 3 HD and take on an army of Hoodlums led by the Black Lum, Andre. With remastered visuals and updated audio, this is the definitive version of Rayman 3.
Medal of Honor: Airborne
How you decide to approach Medal of Honor: Airborne starts the moment you jump out of the plane. Control your drop as you navigate to a desired insertion point to put yourself in the thick of the fight. Then navigate through the war-torn villages and towns to gain an advantage over your enemies on rooftops, balconies and other ruins. With customizable weapons and free-roaming objectives, and local and online co-op, this is a fantastic shooter to add to your library.
