Thanks to backward compatibility being a feature, Xbox Series X|S owners can also natively play this Xbox One title after claiming it via the promotion for no extra cost. Use the store link below using a Gold-active Microsoft account to add the game to a Gold-active Microsoft account:
Colt Canyon: Available until December 31
Colt Canyon is a 2D pixel art shooter where you control a cowboy, or one of the many other unlockable characters, whose mission is to save his kidnapped partner from the ruthless bandits. Take your gun and TNT and shoot your way through a hostile canyon full of hidden treasures, weapons, obstacles and all kinds of bloodthirsty scum.
For those who missed it, one of the Games with Gold titles from last month, Dead End Job, is still available to claim too. It's slated to be replaced by Bladed Fury in two weeks when the final Games with Gold wave of 2022 goes live.
As always, keep in mind that Games with Gold Xbox One titles claimed via these bi-weekly promotions are only playable while a subscription to either Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is active.
