Windbound and Bomber Crew Delux Edition head to Games With Gold.

Microsoft has announced October 2022’s Xbox Games With Gold, including Windbound and Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition.

As revealed at Xbox Wire, next month’s lineup is led by the shipwreck survival game, Windbound. Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition rounds out this month’s offerings – a strategic World War II bombing game that puts you in the cockpit.

The two new Games With Gold titles will be available throughout October for anyone with Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Beginning on October 1, Windbound will kick things off with a neat shipwreck survival experience.

Windbound is available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S – a delightfully challenging survival game that sees you play as Kara, shipwrecked on the Forbidden Islands with nothing except what she can scavenge and build.

Windbound is available throughout the month until October 31 and will task players with crafting weapons and tools to survive, as well as building a new boat to explore the Forbidden Islands for yourself.

Bomber Crew Deluxe Edition arrives halfway through the month, on October 16.

A strategic World War II bombing game, it’s available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and will see you taking to the skies to head off on strategic bombing runs. But it’s not just about where to drop your payload – you’ll manage fuel, ammo, and hydraulics all while trying to avoid enemy gunners. It’s available on Games With Gold until November 15.

IGN’s Bomber Crew review gave it 8/10 and said: “Bomber Crew is an exciting, in-depth management sim with a charming style that offsets the occasionally brutal difficulty of keeping your crew alive and trying to hit a target, all in real-time. A rewarding upgrade cycle makes some trial-and-error frustration worthwhile, and once you get into the groove you can lose hours to its enjoyable rhythm.”

As previously announced, Xbox Games With Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 games from October 2022, so now is your last chance to grab Portal 2 – available until tomorrow, September 30.

Be sure to check out what's headed to Xbox Game Pass in September.
