October’s slate of Games With Gold offerings were announced yesterday as Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes and Halo 3, both of which are free this month on Xbox LIVE for Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers.
In South Africa, however, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes hasn’t been granted with an age rating by the Film and Publications Board (FPB) so it’s not available on the Xbox Games Store (nee Marketplace). Instead, people with South African Xbox LIVE accounts will be getting the excellent Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, which is available now for free to subscribers.
Usually retailing for R109, we reviewed Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet in mid-2011 (read our review), and it turned out to be a fantastic and very different puzzle-themed adventure game starring you as a gadget-filled UFO trying to make sense of the world. Well worth a download!
From October 16th, however, SA gamers will be able to get Halo 3 for free on Xbox LIVE as planned.
