Xbox Games with Gold November titles named

Pneuma! Dirt 3! Dungeon Siege 3! Knight Squad.

Microsoft has named its November line-up of free games headed to the Games with Gold.

Notably, this will be the first month where Xbox 360 titles in the line-up will also be playable on Xbox One via its backwards compatibility feature - which will now be the case every month from here on.

Xbox One backwards compatibility will arrive on 12th November, alongside the console's major new desktop redesign.

All of that said - the Games with Gold selection is a little underwhelming.

November's Xbox One titles are first-person adventure Pneuma: Breath of Life, available 1st-30th November, and Bomberman-meets-Gaultlet indie title Knight Squad, available 16th November to 15th December.

The Xbox 360 games (also playable on Xbox One) are Dirt 3 (free from 1st-15th November) and Dungeon Siege 3 (16th-30th November).

But you're likely to have one or two new titles to try next month - along with more than 100 other backwards compatible Xbox 360 games.
