For November, Xbox Live subscribers on both generations of Xbox consoles have two free bonus games to download. That said, subscribers on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S will have to jump through some hurdles and maybe search a YouTube video for instructions in order to take advantage of the unexpected offer. Specifically, until the end of the month, subscribers can also download Dark abyss and Hydro Thunder Hurricane, courtesy of the South African and Brazilian versions of the subscription service, respectively.
So what are the obstacles? Well, you need to create an account in these regions to download the games to your console. That said, your subscription will carry over, so you won’t need to spend any extra money to do so. And once downloaded, the games are yours as long as you maintain an active Xbox Live Gold membership. If your subscription expires, you will lose access to these games.
Below, you can learn more about each game and check out a trailer for each game:
