Grab your 3 free Xbox Games with Gold for October now

Battlefield Bad Company 2 Arica Screen 08

Microsoft's free Games with Gold for October has begun, and you can pick up Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Chariot, and Crimson Dragon today.

It's 1st October already, that means we're into a new month full of brand new game releases, and we get to download the first of this month's free Games with Gold on Xbox 360 and Xbox One that were announced last week.

First off we have Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on Xbox 360, which is available to download from today through to the 15th October. On the 16th until the end of the month you can download Darksiders II, but we'll bring you more on that game when it's available.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has a mix of single player campaign and multiplayer game modes, but if you think it's like Call of Duty, think again. The single player is decent enough, but it's the multiplayer aspect that'll have you completely engrossed. Choose your class - assault, engineer, medic, or recon - and take part in a number of different modes against your opponents with a bunch of varied vehicles at your disposal, on huge maps.

Xbox One owners can download a brand new title called Chariot, which actually debuts on Xbox today. It'll be free for the entire month as far as we can tell, nothing has been said to the contrary.

Chariot is a platformer that tasks players with lugging the corpse of their princess fiancé's father to it's final resting place. Have a look at the trailer for the game below, then go and download it for yourself.

Crimson Dragon is also still available to download for free on Xbox One. Originally made available as part of Games with Gold in August, there's been no word of it being replaced, but we'll keep you posted.

*Titles are available as free downloads for qualifying Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available. Some regions may offer different titles depending on market availability.
