Microsoft's Major Nelson has announced the free Games with Gold for October 2018. Xbox owners with subscriptions to Xbox Live Gold will be able to download four new games at staggered intervals between October 1 and 31. The games in question are the Xbox One titles Overcooked and Victor Vran, and the Xbox 360 games Stuntman: Ignition and Hitman: Blood Money.
Overcooked is a co-op cooking game you can play with up to four players. Orders come in, and your job is to cook the food and deliver it before a timer runs out. This becomes more difficult as the dishes become increasingly labor-intensive and the kitchen layouts start to go to outlandishly unexpected places. It's available the full month of October. Victor Vran is a loot-based action-RPG in the vein of Diablo III. It's available October 16-November 15.
Over on Xbox 360, Stuntman: Ignition puts you in the shoes of a low-level stunt driver in Hollywood and as you work your way up to handling elaborate stunts in massive blockbuster films. It's available October 1-15. And much like the rest of the series, Hitman: Blood Money finds Agent 47 working on open-ended assassination jobs in locations like a Las Vegas casino, New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and on a riverboat traveling the Mississippi River. It's available October 16-31. Both 360 games are also playable on Xbox One.
It's not too late to download some of September's Games with Gold. Right now Xbox Live Gold members can grab Prison Architect and Livelock for Xbox One and Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
