Xbox Live Gold's next free game is Might & Magic Clash of Heroes

Well received puzzle RPG free for the first two weeks of October

Microsoft has confirmed Might & Magic Clash of Heroes as it next free 'Games with Gold' title.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download the puzzle RPG free of charge between October 1 and October 15.

Released in April 2011 and usually priced at £9.99, the Xbox 360 version of the game has a Metascore of 84.

OXM, which awarded it a 9/10, said in its review: "If most puzzle games leave you feeling slightly jipped and a slave to chance, Clash of Heroes offers an absorbing, long campaign, and a good variety of online modes. Maybe now Might & Magic will get something like the modern audience it deserves."

The game's XBL Marketplace description reads:

Live the epic adventure of 5 young Heroes leading their armies to save the world of Might & Magic. Discover a unique mix of RPG and puzzle battle mechanics and experience brand new online and local battle modes for up to 4 players. Enjoy a 20 hour campaign. Master 10 Faction heroes and spells, 40 creatures with unique abilities and more than 50 artifacts. Challenge your friends online or offline, in 1 vs 1 or in the brand new 2 vs 2 cooperative mode.

Announced at E3 in June, Games with Gold gives subscribers two free games to keep each month, with a new title being made available on the 1st and 16th of each month until the end of 2013.
