I’m a day late and a dollar short, but here’s a peek at the four free new games that Xbox Live Gold subscribers are getting this month.
Reminder: All Xbox 360 games in the Games for Gold promotion also work in Xbox One in Backward Compatibility mode too. So Xbox One users with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are technically getting at least four free games each month.
Here’s what’s new for February.
Normal price: $29.99
Free availability: February 1 to February 28
Description: Take on the role of Lo Wang, a shogun abandoned and left for dead by the corporation he used to work for. Now he must continue alone on the mission he was sent on – to retrieve a blade of unlimited power and fight demon gods from another world! Use an extensive range of weapons and magic to vanquish and banish Lo Wang’s enemies. Combine serious action with some well-placed juvenile humor and you have the recipe for a great action game.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – India
Normal price: $9.99
Free availability: February 16 to March 15
Description: Experience the Assassin’s Creed franchise in a whole new way in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. This unique take on the franchise brings the series’ epic gameplay to a 2.5D side-scroller experience. Plan wisely and solve puzzles while traversing the beautiful scenery without being discovered, obtaining new skills and items along the way.
Normal price: $19.99
Free availability: February 1 to February 15
Description: Get behind the wheel of the fantastic action racing game Split/Second. Set within a reality television show, race through a made-for-TV city rigged to explode while blazing across racetracks as they’re set to detonate with you on them! Every lap is different, more challenging experience as the track starts to crumble due to the constant destruction of the race around you.
NOTE: At the time of this writing, Split/Second is incorrectly listed at its normal price. Microsoft tells me this will be fixed soon. –Paul
Normal price: $9.99
Free availability: February 16 to February 28
Description: Money’s the name of the game in this taxi-ride into chaos! If you want to maximize your earnings and tips by delivering your passengers ahead of their expectations, you’ll have to bend a few laws (breaking them also may be required). Your driving skills will be put to the test as you weave and jump through traffic as you race the clock in this mad dash for cash!
