We’re nearly halfway through the month and that means the second batch of Xbox Free Games with Gold November 2016 comes out next week on November 16.
And what is Xbox giving away to their loyal subscribers for the later half of November? Why none other than Murdered: Soul Suspect for the Xbox One and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through backwards compatibility).
Xbox Free Games with Gold November 2016
For those out of the loop, the first batch of games for November went up on November 1 and is still up for grabs until November 15.
The newly released couch co-op dungeon crawler Super Dungeon Bros is still available for the Xbox One. Likewise, Xbox 360 owners can still get the remaster of the classic 90’s adventure game The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition.
But starting November 16 both these games will become unavailable. Instead members will have access to Murdered: Soul Suspect for the Xbox One and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for the Xbox 360.
Ghosts and Guns
Murdered: Soul Suspect is a mystery adventure game developed by Airtight Studios and published by Square Enix. It came out mid-2014 for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4 to a mixed reception.
In the game, players take on the role of Detective Ronan O’Connor as he’s hunting down a criminal known as “The Bell Killer.” After he meets his death at the hands of the Bell Killer at the start of the game, Ronan returns as a ghost and must solve the mystery of the Bell Killer if he ever wants to find peace.
Where Soul Suspect is a dark and serious game about solving a mystery, Blood Dragon is on the other side of the spectrum.
Developed as a stand-alone DLC for the critically acclaimed Far Cry 3, Blood Dragon first came out in early 2013 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 to positive reviews.
In Blood Dragon, players play as Sergeant Rex “Power” Colt, an American cyber-soldier sent to an island full of a rogue cyber army. If that sounded stupid to you, well that’s probably because it is — but that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun.
Ubisoft described Blood Dragon as “an 80s VHS vision of the future.” And with all the bright neon colors, laser weapons, and cyber-everything — that’s an accurate statement for the game.
