Looking for a little bloody combat to spice up your life? Well, look no further, those of you who happen to own both an Xbox One and a subscription to Xbox Live Gold, because Microsoft is giving you a Volgarr the Viking for FREE right now as a downloadable game. A part of their Xbox Live Games for Gold promotion, Volgarr is the first in a series of games that will be free for Xbox Live Gold members during the month of November. In addition to Volgarr, Gold members will also be able to download Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise starting on the 1st of November and Red Faction: Guerrilla on the 16th.
Volgarr the Viking is a throwback to the hardcore sidescrolling games of yore when games were not all that long and usually quite difficult thus forcing gamers to replay sections of the game over and over to artificially expand playtime. While we can hope that Volgarr will not be that unforgiving those who download it will be treated with glorious 2D graphics, a rocking soundtrack, and plenty of bad guys to destroy at a moment’s notice. Non-Gold Xbox users will also be able to download Volgarr today for a price of $9.99 from the Xbox Market Place.
