According to Xbox, LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes and Kingdom Two Crowns will be included in the November 2021 Xbox Games with Gold lineup.
In November, Xbox Games with Gold 2021 will release LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes and Kingdom Two Crowns, among other titles. Xbox Games with Gold is a monthly subscription service that gives free games to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate users. Because of a price drop to Xbox’s online services in three regions, both subscription services’ value recently rose for some users. With the announcement of the four new free games for November, some Xbox users are once again questioning the worth of Xbox membership services.
Xbox Games with Gold has received a mixed response from Xbox subscribers. Xbox Games with Gold is a bonus to Xbox’s two subscription programs, but it’s starting to feel like an afterthought. This is especially true when comparing the titles available through Games with Gold to those available through Xbox Game Pass. Games with Gold members expect high-quality video games every month, but this is not always the case. The previous Games with Gold monthly lineups have been underwhelming, with the April Games with the Gold lineup being especially so.
According to the Xbox Wire blog, the November 2021 Xbox Games with Gold list includes LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes and Kingdom Two Crowns. Moving Out, a cooperative moving simulation game, and Rocket Knight, a side-scrolling platform game, join these two games. Xbox Live Gold subscribers will gain access to these four titles for a short period as part of Games with Gold. Members of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will gain access in addition to the over 100 titles they now have access to through Xbox Game Pass. The following dates are available: Moving Out is accessible from November 1 to November 30 in the United Kingdom. Two Crowns are available from November 16 to December 15, Rocket Knight is available from November 1 to 15, and Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes are available from November 16 to December 30.
Although LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes is regarded as one of the best LEGO franchises, LEGO video games are not well received. As a result, the announcement that Xbox Games with Gold will include this title may only excite a specific gamer, which is very fond of the LEGO franchise. Moving Out, a video game in which the player takes on the role of a Furniture Arrangement and Relocation Technician (F.A.R.T. ), may also appeal to a comparable gaming audience. On the other side, Kingdom Two Crowns may appeal to some subscribers due to its pixel art-based two-dimensional landscape.
Overall, there does not appear to be a standout game in the lineup. The August Xbox Games with Gold lineup was good, and October’s offer of Resident Evil Code: Veronica X seemed to indicate that the lineups would get better. Unfortunately, it appears like this new lineup will be a flop. Hopefully, this is merely a stumbling block for Xbox Games with Gold.
