Disappointed by Games with Gold? (Image: MICROSOFT)

Games with Gold October 2021 has been announced, and for those not interested, there is an alternative.

For those Xbox Live Gold subscribers who don’t want to play Aaero or Castlevania: Harmony or Despair tomorrow, there are several other titles available to download to enjoy this weekend.

Aaero is a game where you can dash through areas and trace ribbons of light while fighting epic boss battles.

The soundtrack features music by Noisia, Flux Pavilion, Katy B, The Prototypes, Neosignal and more, but has a mixed rating on Metacritic from gamers.

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair has a slightly higher score, but is a backwards compatible game from the Xbox 360 era.

So for those eager to skip these Games with Gold titles in October, there’s an alternate list.

Starting today, Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscribers can enjoy NASCAR Heat 5, Overcooked! 2 and Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition.

Each game is fully playable through Monday, October 4 in the UK and has no content restrictions.

These new free Xbox games can be found by clicking the Subscriptions tab in the Xbox Store and accessing the Gold members area to find the Free Play Days collection on your Xbox One.

The big disadvantage is that on Monday all these games will be placed behind a paywall again.

However, if you enjoy playing them, you can purchase them during the event at these discounted prices:

NASCAR Heat 5 – Standard Edition (19.99 SRP) with 60% off: $8.00.

Overcooked! 2 – Standard Edition (24.99 SRP) with 65% off: $8.75.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition – Standard Edition ($39.99 SRP) with 70% off: $12.00.

And you can find the full descriptions for all three games as listed below by Xbox:


Get behind the wheel of incredible racing machines in the official video game of the world’s most popular stock car series. Challenge up to 39 other drivers, refine your car to suit the track and see if you have what it takes to become the NASCAR Cup Series champion.

Overcooked! 2

Travel back to the Onion Kingdom and assemble your team of chefs. Up to four players can join online or in classic couch co-op to satisfy The Unbread’s hunger! Work up your appetite, hop back in the kitchen and hold onto your aprons, because it’s time to save the world (again).

Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Definitive Edition

Embark on a journey to conquer the Stolen Lands in the first isometric computer RPG set in the hugely popular Pathfinder table universe. Build your party and set yourself up to survive the unforgiving wilderness and the threat of rival kingdoms… as well as threats within your own court. Do you want to keep playing?
