Games with Gold for November 2015 Announced

Major Nelson’s blog has announced the Games with Gold for November 2015.

The games are (drumroll…) Pneuma: Breath of Life and Knight Squad for Xbox One, along with Dirt 3 and Dungeon Siege 3 for Xbox 360.

Let me remind you that Xbox 360 backwards compatibility will be available on Xbox One starting November 12th, so you will actually be able to play all four of these games on Xbox One.

For anyone that is new to Games with Gold, these are games that are absolutely 100% free for Xbox Live Gold members. If you use your Xbox Live account to “purchase” them (for a price of $0.00 or Free) in November, you’ll be able to play them anytime as long as your still have an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

You’ll find descriptions on each of the games below:

Pneuma: Breath of Life is an enthralling first person puzzler putting gamer’s minds to the test in a visually stunning world using Unreal Engine 4 and Physically Based Rendering. Pneuma provides players with a sense of awe and a relentless determination to solve every puzzle and progress through a narrated story of self-discovery, exploring the fundamental nature of being. This is the first person puzzler of 2015 which is designed to force players think outside the box and explore beyond what they know as reality. Play as a god, ‘Pneuma’, and listen to his comical self-obsessed inner monologue whilst he takes you on a journey exploring and traversing his puzzling world. Rack your brain and progress through a series of environmental challenges that require perception, observation, and lateral thinking skills to succeed. Lift bridges, rotate platforms and move entire buildings all with the power of your mind. This game isn’t about your skill with a controller, it’s about how you perceive and analyse situations. Push your brain to its limits in this exciting new first person puzzler as Pneuma contemplates the nature of reality and you explore the ontological mystery of the Breath of Life.

Knight Squad is a brand new 8 players top-down Bomberman meets Gauntlet game. Engage into crazy sword fights with your friends where one hit is enough to take anyone down. Pickup weapons on the map to annihilate your enemies. A knight wielding a laser gun, why not? Grab boots to run faster or a shield to tank one more hit. A kamikaze power up to blow up your opponents, let’s do this! Play 4 vs 4 matches capture the flag games or just go free for all in a Grail or a Last Man Standing game.

Dungeon Siege 3 is an Action RPG that seamlessly blends intuitive fast-paced gameplay, a robust RPG system featuring a large selection of abilities, loot galore and the depth of story Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment are known for creating. Players will be able to adventure by themselves, on the couch with friends, or online in a fully multiplayer experience. For centuries legionnaires have protected the nation of Ehb until they were betrayed and all but driven to the brink of extinction. Now that evil has returned to Ehb the people turn to the few remaining Legionnaires for the protection of the past . As an heir to the legion will you accept this plea for help? How it will all be resolved is up to you!
