Xbox Latest News & Update: Games With Gold November 2016; New Free Titles & Backwards Compatibility Coming

By V Doctor , Updated Oct 24, 2016 08:58 PM EDT

Microsoft has taken another step forward for Xbox players this week as they have announced impending games with Gold November 2016 update as well as five titles which now have backwards compatibility. Those games with backwards compatibility are set to be announced anytime this week although there has been no confirmation as to when exactly the update will be released.

Express reports that unlike previous months, there have been absolutely no leaks before the release of the titles with Gold lineup and it is currently not clear as to which titles will make it to the list. In November of last year, players were treated to a free release of "Knight Squad" and "Pneuma: Breath of Life" on Xbox One.

An improvement was seen for the Xbox 360 lineup which included "Dirt 3" and "Dungeon Siege 3," and these titles were made available to the Xbox One through backwards compatibility. Some fans hope that Microsoft will ride the popularity surge of the recently announced "Red Dead Redemption 2," which might push the company to give it away.

This could really be a popular move and great timing and if actually done, players will have a lot to thank Microsoft for. It was previously noted that with October about to end, Xbox gamers have free new games to look forward to for the next month. Although nothing has been officially announced, this could all change in the days to come.

Last October, Microsoft treated Xbox gamers to four free games and seven titles which support backwards compatibility. These included "Puzzle Quest," "Silent Hill: Downpour," "Eat Lead," "Tour de France 2011," "Jurrassic Park" and "Dragon's Lair."

While there are still no news as to what titles players will be treated to, sources have predicted some titles that are very likely to come out. King's Quest could be a fitting title although it could depend on which instalment Microsoft would decide to offer since the fifth one is coming out very soon.

Another good option would be a previous installment from "Battlefield" to anticipate the upcoming release of "Battlefield 1" on the Xbox which has had a lot of fans raging over it. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more updates on your favorite games and consoles!
