Second free game with gold available on Xbox 360 for rest of October

Darksiders Death

Microsoft's Games with Gold for October moves into the second half with Darksiders 2 up for grabs.

It's the 16th October today, and that means the second free game on Xbox 360 is available for Xbox Gold members to download. If you didn't download your free copy of of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 before today then you've missed out, but from now until the end of the month you can claim Darksiders II totally free.

So what is Darksiders II? Well, Darksiders II is the sequel to 2010's Darksiders, both developed by the now defunct Vigil Games, and published by the equally-defunct THQ. Long may their memory live on. Players take on the role of Death, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, as he sets out to prove his fellow horseman's, War's, innocence for crimes he didn't commit.

I've played the first game to completion and a little of Darksiders II. The gameplay is a solid combo button bash affair, with RPG elements and puzzles. And it looks great too.

Take a look at the trailer below and then get it downloaded before the end of the month, it's free!

Remember you can also download Chariot and Crimson Dragon for free on Xbox One until November too.
