Xbox Games With Gold has evolved a fair bit over the years. Since the arrival of Game Pass, it’s become less of a free games service and more of a subscription that’s required to play online games. Even so, Games With Gold does still offer free games, just fewer than you’d get even a year ago.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can claim two games a month, ranging from AAA blockbusters to beloved indie titles.
Unlike Sony’s PlayStation Plus free games, Games with Gold takes a staggered approach. Microsoft typically adds its free games for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One to the service throughout the month, with one available from the beginning of the new month to the end, and the other becoming available about halfway through the current month and then running into the following month.
Here are the Xbox Games With Gold free games for November. As we near the end of the month, we’re likely to hear about December’s games very soon indeed. Check back in for updates
