Today Microsoft announced the new batch of Games With Gold that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will receive during the month of October with no additional purchase required.
We’re getting Maid of Sker and Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut for Xbox One, while Costume Quest and phinx and the Cursed Mummy will be playable on Xbox One (via backward compatibility) and Xbox 360.
If you’re unfamiliar with the games, you can check out a trailer and blurbs from Microsoft below.
Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut
Paying homage to classic ‘80s trash horror, play as Skullface, an adorably demented villain, out to terrorize camp counselors and any other blocky victims he finds. New dimensions of absurd terror and over 300 fiendish puzzles await in this isometric puzzle game.
Maid of Sker
Do not panic, don’t even breathe! Set in a remote hotel with a macabre and gory history, use stealth tactics to stay alive against a cult of sound-based enemies. Inspired by chilling tales in Welsh folklore, do your best to survive and brave the nightmares of the Quiet Ones.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
Inspired by the mythology of ancient Egypt, play as Sphinx, and his reluctant hero friend, the Mummy, as they travel the world to foil the evil plans of Set. Use stealth, agility, and special powers to find the stolen magical crowns of Egypt and save the world.
Collect super-powered magical costumes and level up your hero in the monster-filled neighborhoods of Auburn Pines. Complete numerous quests, build up your party, and take down evil in the Halloween tale that will capture the imagination of kids and the kids-at-heart.
Do keep in mind that you still have time to grab some of the games of this month’s Games with Gold lineup before they are removed.
