Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners have finally found out the Games with Gold selection for November 2019.
Unfortunately, however, the Games with Gold line-up isn’t exactly brimming with blockbuster releases.
Revealed by Major Nelson on Twitter, the November 2019 free Xbox One games line-up includes Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter and Final Station.
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter will be available to subscribers from November 1 until the end of the month, while Final Station will be free to download from November 16 until December 15.
Xbox 360 owners also get a couple of new freebies, beginning with Star Wars Jedi Starfighter on November 1.
This will be replaced by Microsoft’s own Joy Ride Turbo from November 16 until midnight on November 30.
Microsoft’s selection hasn’t exactly gone down well with fans, who have taken to Twitter to complain about the games.
Indeed, it’s the second month in a row of underwhelming games, leading to speculation that Microsoft is pushing fans to the Ultimate Games Pass.
One fan writes: “I feel like they are pushing people to gamepass with theses crappy games with gold selections. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.”
This is echoed by a second user, who writes: “Games with gold has been pretty pants for a few months now, hasn’t it?”
The disappointment continues with: “GamesWithGold titles announced for November, another disappointing month. Only reason to keep gold is to be able to play those few decent titles that were #gwg a while back.”
“Another poor month for Games With Gold, thank god for Game Pass.”
Some subscribers were able to look on the bright side, however: “I hoping for mass effect 2 for games with gold in November with N7 day coming but I am happy with Star Wars starfighter I haven’t played that in years.”
The pick of the month is probably Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, which has a 66% rating on Metacritic.
“Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is a fantastic adventure with unique gameplay that blends investigation, action and exploration for an extraordinary experience that will test the limits of your nerves and intelligence.
“Track down evil in the darkest corners of London and the human soul while playing as the great detective, as you untangle a web of intrigue leading to the final stunning revelation.
“Each of your deductions and actions affects the rest of the story, for better or for worse…
“Play as Sherlock Holmes and use his extraordinary abilities to progress through the adventure. Freely explore several of the city’s neighbourhoods in search of clues and suspects. Interrogations, combat, chases, infiltration… discover a game that is unlike any other!”
