Battlefield 1 leads Xbox Games With Gold for November

Along with the original Assassin’s Creed

Battlefield 1 will be available free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in November as part of the Games With Gold program, Microsoft announced Tuesday.

It’s a smart move by Microsoft and Battlefield publisher Electronic Arts — the next entry in the military franchise, the World War II shooter Battlefield 5, will debut Nov. 20. It’s the same thing Activision and Sony did in September, when Destiny 2 was free on PlayStation Plus during the month in which the game’s latest expansion, Forsaken, arrived.

Battlefield 1 will be free all month long, and the other Xbox One game for November is Flippfly’s Race the Sun; it will be free from Nov. 16 through Dec. 15. On the Xbox 360 backward compatibility side, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed — the original game, which was released all the way back in 2007 — will be available free to Gold subscribers from Nov. 1-15. And there’s a second EA title in the November lineup: Dante’s Inferno, the action game from the now-defunct Visceral Games, which will be free during the second half of the month.

In the meantime, Gold members can still pick up some of the October Games With Gold.
