Each month PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold give away from games for paying subscribers of the online services. While Sony is soon to drop support for PS3 and Vita, they haven’t yet. And even though Microsoft is selling an Xbox Game Pass with all first party Xbox One titles included, they’re still offering something up for Gold members. Sony has focused on giving less but bigger games for the PS4 in recent times, while Microsoft is giving indie titles and lesser known games a chance to shine in their Games With Gold service since Xbox Game Pass already holds many major titles from first and third party studios.
Update: Xbox Game Pass titles added for October 2018:
Wolfenstein: The New Order, Metro 2033: Redux, Forza Horizon 4, Lego Indiana Jones, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Westerado: Double Barreled, and more.
Editor’s Note: Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service which allows a large amount of games to be downloaded by its subscribed members. All first party titles such as Sea of Thieves and future first party titles for Xbox ONE will release for Xbox Game Pass subscribers to download at no extra charge on release day. Similar to Netflix, sometimes games are added or removed. The games listed above are a handful of the highlights to what subscribers can expect during October 2018.
