Halo 3 is second free 'games with gold title' for October


October's second free Xbox 360 game will be Halo 3, Microsoft's Major Nelson have just announced.

Bungie's sci-fi shooter will be available to download for free from 16th October, following the previously-announced Might & Magic Clash of Heroes.

Halo 3 was first revealed as one of the titles to be included in the promotion back at E3, although no date was given until now.

Games for Gold has been the worst promotion ever. So glad I cancelled my subscription.

Would be worth it if they gave you all the DLC but then again you could just go and get ODST. Tbh I would have preferred ODST

Great game, but... who doesn't have this? Any 360 owner who doesn't have this game should really question what they're doing with a 360... Pretty much the only exclusive on the system you should want.

At least might and magic was a good game.

I don't have the game, and don't really question why I have a 360.

To be fair, I only played Halo 3 to get some easy achievements, but realised after a while it wasn't worth it because wasn't getting many achievements.

Halo 3 was too Flood focused that's why I don't like it much

Each to their own I suppose, but personally to me H3 was probably the highlight of the 360 to me and probably the highlight of online gaming to me so far, shame Halo has gotten worse in this area over time...

I'm sure nobody here needs to ask what my highlight of the 360 was :)

No, when they added 3D virtual avatars, just genius.

My highlight of the 360 would be Lost Odyssey (I would say Tales of Vesperia but it's not an exclusive)

I thought the Games for Gold was pretty good, considering I renewed Gold before knowing anything about it, so all these games are totally free - I did not get /renew Gold for these free game. Plus I am slacking where the 360 has been concerned. I have had most of the games from this deal, except for Dead Rising 2 (the best free game so far as I almost bought it about a month earlier) and the arcade games, but I have hardly played any of them, due to being busy with other stuff, so can now sell some if I want. I have Halo 3 still sealed atm, I have not even gotten around to playing Halo 2 yet either! I am playing catch up, so going to play through all the Halos starting with the Anniversary edition now, http://www.shopto.net/video%20games/xbox360/XB2HA32-halo-combat-evolved-anniversary Then Halo 2 PC to get achievements :) Then Halo 3, Then ODST, Then Halo 4, Then Halo Wars, then should be ready for Halo 5 :)

I dont know never liked the multiplayer for Halo all that much, I did enjoy the firefight mode in ODST and Reach but the competitive not really. I was more of a Gears person.

I enjoy them "Mess around" game types like Griffball,Hockey,Chess,Etc, I even enjoy going into FFA with Active Camo and just sneaking around Assassinating everyone

Had good fun in Halo 2 at a system link at my friends house a few years ago with 6 or 7 of us all in different rooms playing. I liked the way they had it so that if you were near someone and they were talking you could hear them through your headset.

" I was more of a Gears person." Now this right here, is why Zombie is a legend.

I know :) though I was not too keen on the multiplayer for judgement though i do understand they were trying something different.

Ha MS should offer more recent games to its users like what PS Plus is doing. I got Halo 3 way back in 2007 and to be honest the Gears Trilogy is better. Good thing i don't pay for Gold anymore...

No one says you should get free games paying for gold so nobody can complain at what they give away, even if they are old games.

Microsoft hyped this "Games with Gold" thing up as their answer to PS+ and so far crap
Whitey's avatar
Whitey 3 years ago
Yeah but everyone has different opinions and tastes, a lot of the "great" games that Sony give on PS+ would probably be of no interest to me, same as the 360 gold games don't interest some people. I bet there are some people out there that are happy they get Halo 3 for free, so it's all good.

Thing is this was supposed to be MS answer to PS+ and so far they have only given out games that are over 6 years old Rainbow Six: Vegas and Halo 3 for example, in the time frame most people would have bought/played the game by then so it's pointless. And Sony are pushing for more recent games that are within 1-2 years old, sure some people might have not played Halo 3 but still PS+ more bang for your buck.
