One of the best parts of owning a current generation console is learning which games are set to join Microsoft or Sony's subscription services. At the end of each month, rumors start to flood the community with ideas on the upcoming titles. Although not officially confirmed by Microsoft, a leak might have revealed what is set to join #Xbox One Games for October. If this proves true, then players have a pretty exciting month to look forward to.

'Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor'

The standout title listed in the leak is the fun action-RPG "Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor." With its controversial sequel set to be released on October 10th, 2017; it does make sense to make its predecessor available on the subscription service.

If it is true, players will be able to download "Shadow of Mordor" on the 16th of the month. For those who never played the "Lord of the Rings" video game, it is definitely worth a try. The combat is similar to the "Arkham" series, with a pretty large open-world to explore. The story is nothing too groundbreaking, but it gets the job done.

The franchise is the subject of quite a bit of bad press due to the sequel's microtransactions, so this might be an attempt to calm the flames down.

'DmC: Devil May Cry'

Ninja Theory's "DmC: Devil May Cry" was not the most well-received entry in the franchise by fans.The developer's decision to mock Dante's previous look was heavily criticized, while diehards found the gameplay way too simplistic and too easy.

Still, the "Definitive Edition" is a worthwhile hack-and-slash title, and one of the better options on the console.

It is a pretty quick sit, as the story lasts for around eight hours, and includes Vergil's DLC.

Although far from a perfect game, "DmC: Devil May Cry" is worthy of at least a download.

'Castlevania: Lords of Shadow'

Staying within the genre of hack-and-slash, "Catlevania: Lords of Shadow" is one of the two Xbox 360 games included in the leak. As with previous months, if it is true, the title should be available to play on the Xbox One as well.

A departure from the classic "Castlevania" games, the reboot is similar to "God of War." It was largely well received by critics, with most praising the story and gameplay, although some fans found it lacking compared to the older 2D platformers.

'Blood Drive'

The final title included in the leak, "Blood Drive" is a vehicular combat game published by Activision back in 2010. It received largely negative reviews for repetitive gameplay. #Shadow of war #Games With Gold
