October’s Xbox Games with Gold lineup includes the classic Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, often considered to be one of the best games in the series.
Microsoft has announced the Xbox Games with Gold titles for October 2021, revealing classic survival horror game Resident Evil Code: Veronica X. Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is widely regarded as one of the best non-numbered titles in the horror franchise, and its inclusion with Xbox Live Gold is set to introduce the story to a whole new audience.
Resident Evil Code: Veronica first released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000, with the extended Resident Evil Code: Veronica X coming to both PlayStation 2 and Dreamcast in 2001. Due to initially releasing on the Dreamcast, the game was missed by many players, despite its positive reviews from critics and fans alike. An HD remaster was made for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, which is the version most accessible today. Xbox fans have been able to play the game on even the newest Xbox consoles, with the title available for purchase via the Microsoft Store and playable on Xbox Series X/S thanks to the consoles’ backwards compatibility.
