Today, Microsoft announced November's free Games with Gold for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners. Starting on November 1, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter will be free with the subscription. Then, on November 16, The Final Station and Joy Ride Turbo can be downloaded at no cost. You need an active Xbox Live membership to play the Xbox One games, but the Xbox 360 titles are yours to keep after you redeem them once. It doesn't matter if you're still an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.
According to Microsoft, November's lineup provides over $89 in value and up to 2,200 in Gamerscore. You can read about the free games below.
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is a third-person crime thriller where you take control of Sherlock Holmes. While you have to keep on investigating various cases, there is an overarching plot that has a surprise twist. You won't see it coming! This is probably the most intriguing title in my opinion.
Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter
Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter is regarded as a cult classic because it's a compelling space shooter. You get to pilot a deadly craft and destroy rogue forces. It's quite a lot of fun, even though the visuals are a little dated after all these years. While you can always play it on Xbox 360, the game came out on the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox.
The Final Station
The Final Station is a pixelated adventure where you hop aboard a train and have to get past a zombie apocalypse. However, a number of challenging scenarios are thrown your way so you have to improvise along your journey.
Joy Ride Turbo
Lastly, Joy Ride Turbo is a cute racing game where you perform insane stunts as you challenge your friends. There's a lot to love about the title, and if you're looking for a break between those heavy-hitters like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, then be sure to check it out.
Be sure to download all four of these games next month because many of them are great experiences. Out of all of these, we would recommend playing Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter because they're incredible titles.

Awesome, even more Game Pass hand me downs. Spend more money and get less, kudos Microsoft.
Joyride was already part of GWG.
Fun fact, Final Station isn't available in Australia so as an alternative we got... nothing. Devils Daughter is carrying through until the end of the month.
