Microsoft has announced October 2021 Xbox Games With Gold

Another month has come and gone and as usual just before the month ends, Microsoft has revealed the games that their Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to claim during the month of October. Check out what new adventures are in line for you next month:

  • Aaero
  • Hover
  • Castlevania: Harmony of Despair
  • Resident Evil Code: Veronica X


This one should get all fans of music-based video games excited. For the whole month of October you can claim Aaero, a game where you explore stunning environments, battle foes and enemy bosses while gliding through the air to the beat of a unique, beautiful soundtrack. Music from Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Katy B, The Prototypes, Neosignal and many more await you in this Indie masterpiece from “Mad Fellows”. 


Parkour your way around a futuristic 3D open world while enjoying complete freedom in Hover. Join a group of rebels fighting against oppressive laws in their own way – by pulling off the most difficult stunts and tricks as you make your way around ECP17, also known simply as ‘Hover Town’. The game features a very fast-paced and a rather large learning curve that keeps you coming back for more, striving to pull off new combos and tricks. You can also switch between offline and online modes and roam the streets alone or be joined by your friends from all around the world!

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

There’s a good reason for fans of Konami’s legendary Castlevania franchise to be excited about October as the list of claimable games includes Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Make sure you don’t miss it, though, as the game is only available from the 1st to the 15th of October. This multiplayer title includes characters and locations from several Castlevania games. You can team up with up to 5 of your friends in a 6-man online co-op experience in a bid to overcome your old nemesis, Dracula.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X

Another classic from a legendary franchise, Resident Evil Code: Veronica X can be claimed by Xbox Live Gold members from the 16th to the 31st of October. Several months have passed since the destruction of Racoon City, in this game you fill the boots of Claire Redfield, as she visits France in an attempt to find her brother. Claire ends up being captured and trapped in a zombie infested Rockfort Island. Now it’s on you to get her out of there.

You can download all of the games above as long as you have a valid Xbox Live Gold subscription during the month of October. If you haven’t got one yet, make sure to check out our special deals on Xbox Live Gold gift cards!
