Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X have two secret free games in addition to November’s officially announced lineup. That said, there are some hurdles to jump through to download and play these two secret free games, though none that include opening your wallet. More specifically, in addition to the November lineup, subscribers can currently download both Dark Void and Hydro Thunder Hurricane, for free, via Xbox GWG South Africa and Xbox GWG Brazil, respectively.
So, what are the hurdles? Well, you need to create an account in these regions to download the games onto your console. That said, your subscription will carry over, so you won’t need to spend any extra money to do this. And once downloaded, the games are yours to keep as long as you maintain an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. If your subscription lapses, you will lose access to these games.
Below, you can read more about each game and check out a trailer for each game:
Dark Void: “Dark Void is a sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fueled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat. Set in a parallel universe called ‘The Void,’ players take on the role of Will, a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances within the mysterious Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth.”
Hydro Thunder Hurricane: “Hydro Thunder Hurricane is the adrenaline-pumping sequel to the classic arcade racing game, with rocket motor boats blasting through interactive environments on an incredible dynamic water surface.”
