Might & Magic and Halo 3 are October’s free Games for Gold!

halo 3 boxartThe Xbox 360’s Game for Gold program has given players many Gold users many great titles like Dead Rising 2, Crackdown, and Rainbow Six: Vegas.  Major Nelson announced today that this trend will continues, as the program gives gamers both Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes and Halo 3.

Gold users can download Might & Magic tomorrow, and Halo 3 on October 16th.  Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is a puzzle-RPG from Capybara games.  A great introduction on the title can be found here from Youtube’s TotalBiscuit (note that he is talking about the PC version though)

Halo 3 is one of my favorite games to ever release.  It’s the conclusion to the story told throughout Halo CE and Halo 2, and features one of the finest multiplayer modes ever released.  It is worth noting that the game does feature DLC locked playlists.  This means that while some playlists like Social Slayer can be played with no DLC, many if not all of the ranked playlists will require most of the DLC.

The good news is that the Heroic map pack, which features Foundry (the first map built for Forge), and the map Cold Storage are both free.  This leaves the Legendary Map pack, and Mythic 1 and 2 packs still costing money.  These packs regularly go on sale, but you may just want to pick up Halo 3 ODST, which features every Halo 3 multiplayer map on disk, for only $13 new and $9.99 used.
