Exciting news for Xbox Live Gold members, starting in November all future Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 will be playable on Xbox One, giving Xbox One owners double the free games to play each month. When Xbox One Backward Compatibility launches on November 12, play multiplayer with your friends no matter which console they’re on and enjoy Xbox 360 games with the advanced features of your Xbox One, including Game DVR, Screenshots, and in-home streaming to Windows 10.

Xbox One owners can download their free Xbox 360 Games with Gold from Xbox.com/GameswithGold or from their Xbox 360 console. The games will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section of “My games & apps”.

Holiday surprises are coming early in November with a great line up on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Xbox One Gold members get the first-person adventure game Pneuma: Breath of Life and the multiplayer swords-and-silliness action game Knight Squad. On Xbox 360, two fantastic titles, DiRT 3 and Dungeon Siege III, round out the Games with Gold offering – and both will be playable on Xbox One when Backward Compatibility begins rolling out on November 12.

As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program.

* Pneuma: Breath of Life ($19.99 ERP): Available from November 1-30 on Xbox One

* Knight Squad ($14.99 ERP): Available from November 16-December 15 on Xbox One

* DiRT 3 ($24.99 ERP): Available from November 1-15, 2015 on Xbox 360.

* Dungeon Siege III ($19.99 ERP): Available from November 16-30 on Xbox 360

Pneuma: Breath of Life is an intricately designed adventure/puzzle title that challenges players to delve into the mystery of consciousness and discover the power of one’s own decisions. Beautifully rendered – yet utterly sparse – environments convey a sense of lonely wonderment, while a minimalistic soundtrack helps set the stage for exploration and discovery. This is an utterly solitary game, but one that will leave you thinking, questioning, and wondering long after it’s over.

On the other end of the spectrum, Games with Gold is spotlighting Knight Squad, an action-filled, medieval-themed multiplayer party game with one goal in mind: Kick as much enemy butt as possible. You pick your representative knight, then face off against up to seven other players in a series of top-down, bird’s-eye-view arenas, in several different game modes – including deathmatch and a modified “soccer” mode, where you have to kill the other team to get to their goal. Part Bomberman, part Castle Crashers, Knight Squad is nonstop thrills for a party weekend.
