XBOX Live Gold (XBOX LIVE) Subscribers will receive new games for free as part of the Gold October lineup as Microsoft has announced two new games with Gold. Xbox's October lineup has been expanded to include Aaero and Hover. There is no new lineup for the Series X/S this time around, but backward compatibility will now allow users to play games produced for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Players of Xbox series X/S can now take down Dracula with their beloved heroes in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, and relive the survivor-horror classic Resident Evil Code: Veronica X.

The New Games Added in October Lineup


Hover is a fast-paced Parkour game set in a future atmosphere. The game's gameplay is over-the-top, with magnificent visuals that will provide you with an unforgettable experience while traveling the wide universe. The players can dress up as their squad and join the revolt, where they can hone their skills, upgrade their gear, and unleash incredible combos. “Hover is a fast-paced single and multiplayer parkour game set in a futuristic 3D open world,” according to the official Xbox Store page. The joys of a fast-paced single-player and multiplayer Parkour game are available to the players. The game takes place in a high-tech metropolis ECP17, nicknamed Hover City by its inhabitants. A powerful dictatorship has been created in the game, and communication with the Galactic Union has been cut off. The administration has outlawed entertainment, and there is no way to enjoy fun in the city. The gamers will be in command of their young rebel teams, which will battle against the Great Admin's new policies. The game features high-tech equipment that allows the player to perform incredible jumps while moving throughout the city and assisting citizens while attempting to reach the Orbital Station. They could alert the Galactic Union and end the oppression in that way.”



Aaero continues Amplitude's aesthetic and introduces it to new generations with style and some brand new licensed music. It includes music from artists such as Flux Pavillion and allows you to speed through stunning surroundings designed by an outstanding two-man crew, Mad Fellows'. As the gamers will progress through the game, the gamers will notice streams of light and other visual signals that will merge in with the music. The players can speed through gorgeous, styled sceneries, tracing light ribbons and releasing the music's energy. It's an ambitious title, and it's getting more attention.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

The game has been updated to include a new multiplayer feature that allows up to 6 players to play in various co-op and survival scenarios.

The players should be excited to revisit Dracula’s castle to see what kind of danger awaits them.
