Microsoft has announced the free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games that will be available for paid Xbox Live Gold members to download in October as part of the Games with Gold program. They will include the first season of The Walking Dead episodic game series from Telltale Games.
Xbox Live is Microsoft's digital media delivery service perhaps best known for its connection to online gaming on the Xbox 360 and now the Xbox One. Originally it actually launched back in 2002, the days of the original Xbox, with updated versions coming in 2005 with the Xbox 360 and again in 2013 with the Xbox One.
Xbox Live has also extended beyond the Xbox consoles, with an integration in Windows gaming and Windows Phone. With the forthcoming launch of Windows 10, Xbox Live will grow again.
