Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon And Monkey Island Special Edition Included In November’s Games With Gold


With the dawn of a new month almost upon us, Microsoft has seen fit to announce November’s Xbox Games With Gold line-up today, giving all of its members a handful of new titles completely free of charge.

As usual, there’s four games being made available throughout the month, including the likes of Ubisoft’s sci-fi satire shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon as well as the excellent Monkey Island: Special Edition.

Due to rotate out at the end of this month are Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings, The Escapists, I Am Alive and MX vs ATV Reflex, so if you’ve yet to pick up any that are still available, you best not leave it too long to act.

As for November’s schedule, you can see it below.

  • Super Dungeon Bros – ($19.99 ERP): Available from November 1-30 on Xbox One
  • Murdered: Soul Suspect – ($19.99 ERP): Available from November 16- December 15 on Xbox One
  • Monkey Island: SE – ($9.99 ERP): Available from November 1-15 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One
  • Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon – ($14.99 ERP): Available from November 16-30 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

Depending on which type of genre you learn towards more, be it shooters or more relaxing story-focused titles, Monkey Island and Blood Dragon are likely to be most people’s most anticipated free game of the month, although Murdered: Soul Suspect and Super Dungeon Bros are certainly worth checking out, too.

The latter, a fun-loving dungeon crawler by React Games, is a great co-op title with “satisfying combat and light-hearted rock humor,” while the former is a whodunit that casts players in the role of a ghostly (literally) detective that sets out to solve his own murder.

For a closer look at all four of November’s Games With Gold offerings, give the trailer above a watch.
