The next batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers has been revealed. November’s Games with Gold lineup includes Praetorians – HD Remaster and Dead End Job. The former will be available to claim all month long, while Dead End Job will be released on November 16. It’s the second month of the new Games with Gold strategy, which releases backward-compatible Xbox and Xbox 360 titles, reducing giveaways from four to two.
Praetorians – HD Remaster is, of course, a remaster of the 2003 real-time strategy game set during the early days of the Roman Empire. The remaster was released in 2020 to positive reviews thanks to quality of life improvements and revised visuals that brought the classic closer to modern standards of the genre. The story takes place on battlefields scattered across Egypt, Italy, and other countries. Although the scope and structure of this RTS isn’t as grand as many modern strategy games, it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in the mood to play an RTS.
In mid-November, subscribers will be able to get hooked Final work, a fun twin-stick shooter with cartoon graphics inspired by The Ren & Stimpy Show and other cartoons of the time. Your job is to hunt ghosts with your plasma gun and vacuum pack reminiscent of Luigi’s Mansion. Dead End Job can be played alone, but is probably best played with a friend through local co-op. It supports drop-in, drop-out cooperative ghost hunting throughout the adventure. Thanks to procedurally generated levels, no two races will be exactly the same.
