Now that we’ve hit the middle of October it’s time for Xbox Live Gold members to download their last two titles of the month: Victor Vran on Xbox One and Hitman: Blood Money on Xbox 360 (this title can also be played on Xbox One through backward compatibility).
Victor Vran is a top-down loot-based RPG in the vein of Diablo. You play as the titular hero Victor Vran, a demon slayer sent to the city of Zagoravia to eliminate all manner of monsters from skeletons and vampires, to giant spiders. You’ll explore ‘Motorhead: Through the Ages’ which is a wild tour through the mythos of the loudest band in the world. The game has decent reviews on Metacritic with a 77 Metascore for the Xbox One Version. The game will be available for free until November 15.
Hitman: Blood Money, the fourth game in the long-running series, kicks off with Agent 47 discovering his employers are dropping dead at the hands of a mysterious organization. You’ll, of course, use all the tools at Agent 47’s disposal to track down targets and eliminate them. Money plays a big role in this entry as it determines Agent 47’s passage through the story and what weapons he’ll use to take down his targets. This Hitman title is generally the most favored among critics and consumers alike. Hitman: Blood Money has solid reviews on Metacritic with a Metascore of 82 for the Xbox 360 version. The game will only be available between now and October 31, so download it to tide you over until the next entry in the rebooted series, Hitman 2, comes out in November.
Both of these Xbox games will replace Livelock and Stuntman: Ignition, which has ceased availability for download. Normally, Victor Vran and Hitman: Blood Money cost $20 each, so be sure to snatch these titles while you still can.
Will you be downloading one or both of these Xbox Games With Gold titles this month? Let us know in the comments.
