Available for download to Xbox One owners is Valiant Hearts: The Great War. That game will be given away throughout October, and it will be joined by the first season of The Walking Dead on Oct. 16. The latter game can be downloaded until Nov. 15.

The Metal Gear Solid 5 prologue Ground Zeroes is free from Oct. 1 until Oct. 15 on the Xbox 360. After that, Gold members will also be able to try out The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season. There is a shorter window for Gold members on the elder console, however: The free download ends on Halloween.

All Games with Gold downloads on the Xbox 360 will be backward-compatible with the Xbox One. Microsoft announced that news at Gamescom 2015. Backward compatibility between the two systems will roll out starting in November.
