Games with Gold November 2017: these are the free games you can get this month

One of the main benefits of being an Xbox Live Gold subscriber is definitely the fact that each month you get access to a range of free games across the Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms. If you’re an Xbox One owner, backwards compatibility means you get to take advantage of the Xbox 360 titles too.

This is a great way to try games you might not otherwise have played, whether because they're indie titles that slip under your radar or simply because you don’t have the funds to buy several games a month.

Even if you don’t have the console memory or the time to spare right now, we’d say it’s always worth claiming them every month anyway as you’ll then have free access to them for as long as you have an active Xbox Live account.

Since this is a monthly event, we’ve decided to create a one-stop shop where you’ll be able to find the newest free games, as well as scroll back and see which games were featured in previous months. That way you’ll know whether it’s worth holding out for a game to appear in an upcoming Games with Gold month or if it's already been offered. 

So without further ado, here are the free Xbox Live games in North America, Europe, and Australia for November 2017.

Don't forget some of the October titles are still available too!

November 2017

Xbox One

Tales from the Borderlands – November 16 to December 15 (usually $14.99/ £11.99/ AU $19.95)

One of the strongest titles from Telltale Games, Tales from the Borderlands is a narrative and choice-driven episodic game set after the events of Borderlands 2.  Head to the harsh world of Pandora and play Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with big dreams, and Fiona, a con artist looking to earn big. These unwilling partners must travel together to recover a huge sum of money they both think is theirs, encountering bandits, hunters and gangsters along the way. This bundle contains the complete season so you can enjoy the story from beginning to end.

Trackmania Turbo – November 1 to November 30 (usually $39.99/ £29.99/ AU $59.95)

Looking for an arcade racing experience unlike any other? Then you want Trackmania Turbo. This game incites you to test your driving skills across a bunch of crazy tracks, and even invites you to design your own. You can play solo in campaign mode, team up with a friend in local co-op mode or play against up to four friends in local multiplayer. 

Xbox 360

NiGHTS into Dreams – November 1 to November 15 (usually $9.99/ £6.75/ AU $9.95)

This is a game that's been around for a while. Originally published by Sega on the Sega Saturn in 1996, NiGHTS into Dreams is an action adventure game that follows two teenagers, Claris and Elliot, in a dream world called Nightopia. It's up to Claris and Elliot to team up with Nights to stop an evil ruler known as Wizeman from destroying Nightopia and their own world. This game is an example of Sega at its most creative and weird. It's difficult but well worth trying out. 

Deadfall Adventures – November 16 to November 30 (usually $39.99/ £34.99/ AU $69.95)

This is one of the more expensive Games With Gold this month. Deadfall Adventures is a first person action adventure game which puts you in the shoes of a treasure hunter in the WW2 era. Indiana Jones, anyone? Through the game you fight Nazis across environments that range from Egypt to the Arctic, solving puzzles and finding hidden treasures along the way. 

October 2017

Xbox One

Gone Home – October 1 to 31 (usually $19.99 / £15.99/ AU $26.95)

Gone Home is something a little bit different from the fast-paced action games you might be used to. Rather than rushing to fight enemies or solve puzzles, the game instead sees you slowly exploring your family home, finding clues to piece together what's happened to its inhabitants. 

What results is a captivating love story that's well worth playing through. 

The Turing Test – October 16 to November 15 (usually $19.99 / £14.99 / AU $29.95)

Another first-person experience with a twist, The Turing Test is a puzzle game where you play as Ava Turing as she attempts to solve the mysteries of Europa.
