Microsoft has announced the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for November 2022, including Roman Empire RTS Praetorians – HD Remaster and co-op twin-stick shooter Dead End Job.
According to Xbox Wire, the library update begins with Praetorians on November 1 (available until November 30). Dead End Job follows up later in the month on November 16 (available until December 15), while the October Games With Gold offering Bomber Crew is free until November 15.
On Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Praetorians gets an HD makeover for the 2003 strategy game. In a bid to become emperor, you’ll navigate the Roman Empire’s political intrigue through reworked console controls and high-definition visuals. The remaster includes more than 20 campaign missions, plus online multiplayer with up to eight players.
The colorful, playful ghost-blasting of Dead End Job offers another co-op game for the service, and still includes the option to go at it alone. Inspired by the whimsy of 90’s cartoons, paranormal pest buster Hector Plasm will rid offices, restaurants, and more of otherworldly critters with his trusty plasma blaster and vacuum pack.
October marks the first month since Microsoft stopped including Xbox 360 games through its Games With Gold program. Prior to the change, the service typically offered four games, with two of those slots reserved for Xbox 360 titles. Both games for October were originally released on Xbox One.
The Games With Gold library is also available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, a premium offering bundling its services together. If you’re interested in making the upgrade, check out our list covering the expanded digital library.
