Overcooked will be the main Xbox Games With Gold free game during October, Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb announced Tuesday on Twitter.

Overcooked, the kooky cooperative cooking game from Ghost Town Games, will be free all month long on Xbox One. Victor Vran is the other free Xbox One game for October; it will be available at no cost to Xbox Live Gold subscribers from Oct. 16 through Nov. 15. To be clear, the Games With Gold version appears to be just the $19.99 game itself — not Victor Vran: Overkill Edition, a $39.99 bundle that includes the game and two add-ons.

On the Xbox 360 front, Microsoft will offer the early-generation game Stuntman: Ignition for free from Oct. 1-15. The sequel to 2002’s Stuntman, Paradigm Entertainment’s Ignition was published by THQ in 2007 on PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. During the second half of October, Gold subscribers will be able to download IO Interactive’s Hitman: Blood Money for free.

In the meantime, some of the September games are still available.
