Microsoft Reveals New Games with Gold Titles for February

Posted on January 28, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Uncategorized with 3 Comments

Xbox Live Gold subscribers will gain access to four new games next month through Microsoft’s Games with Gold promotion.

“On Xbox One, race across a legendary mountain course in TT Isle of Man and then dive deep into the depths of Lovecraftian horror in Call of Cthulhu,” Microsoft’s Dean Shimabukuro writes. “On Xbox 360, and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, enjoy a fresh spin on a beloved franchise in Fable Heroes then play an all-time classic in Star Wars Battlefront.”

Here’s what’s coming and when:

TT Isle of Man ($59.99 ERP): Available February 1 to 29 on Xbox One

“Take on the challenge of Snaefell mountain in the motorcycle racing game, TT Isle of Man. All 37.73 miles of the legendary course is faithfully reproduced in this realistic moto-racing title that will challenge your skills and reflexes. Memorize each section and corner each bend to perfection, all while hurtling along at 180 mph.”

Call of Cthulhu ($39.99 ERP): Available February 16 to March 15 on Xbox One

“Plunge into a world of cosmic horror and creeping madness in Call of Cthulhu. In the official videogame inspired by the classic pen and paper RPG, investigate a family death on an isolated island where nothing is as it seems. Trust no one in a story filled with strange creatures, weird science and sinister cults, set within the iconic universe of H.P. Lovecraft.”

Fable Heroes ($9.99 ERP): Available February 1 to 15 on Xbox One & Xbox 360

“Get in on the highly addictive, hack-and-slash adventure title, Fable Heroes. As the heroes of Albion, play up to four players, either competitively or in co-op mode, and collect as many gold coins as you can. Defeat familiar foes and new enemies alike in this fresh spin on the beloved franchise and take playful competition to the next level.”

Star Wars Battlefront ($9.99 ERP): Available February 16 to 29 on Xbox One & Xbox 360

“Experience an all-time classic with Star Wars Battlefront. Participate in memorable battles from the first six Star Wars films as you fight on the front lines with every weapon and vehicle you see at your disposal. Either by yourself or with an army behind you, the choice is yours to topple the Empire or crush the Rebellion. Note: No online gameplay support.”

    Call of Cthulhu wasn't bad - not as good as the last one, but still not bad.

    Picking a shooter title, even one with a story and strong theme, with no online play, is a bit off for Xbox Live Gold. Hey, it's free, but for how long can they drag these old games out when they have another subscription service?

    I was planning to buy Call of Cthulhu anyway so it is a win even if I am not particularly interested in any of the other titles.
