Games with Gold for December treated Xbox gamers to six awesome titles, our pick of the bunch was Thief.
On Xbox One in January players can grab themselves a copy of Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition.
The ultimate KI experience. Includes Jago, Sabrewulf, Thunder, Glacius, Sadira, Orchid, Spinal and Fulgore, 8 costumes, 16 premium accessory packs, and KI Classic game.
Also from January 16th – February 15th Xbox One players can grab themselves a copy of Zheros.
Zherosis a new gen 3D beat’em up, based on the genre hallmarks, above all: smashing hordes of enemies and punching stuff.
In a journey through distant and unknown galaxies, you will play as the members of the Zheros squad: Mike and Captain Dorian. Brave, strong as awkward and dim-witted the first one; agile, smart and ready for anything the second one. They are both intergalactic agents called to protect the galaxies from crime.
Your mission: defend the universe from the evil Dr. Vendetta and his twisted plan to mutate every living creature in his trusted minions.
In single player or in co-op mode, you can rely on your punches, using a rich selection of combos, and on powerful hi-tech weapons, but if that was not enough, a strong and destructive mech will come to the rescue in the most dangerous situations.
From bizarre characters and encounters to strange locations, find out what mystery awaits you at the end of your journey.
On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility) players can grab themselves a copy of DiRT Showdown until January 15th. This will then be switched out for Deus Ex: Human Revolution which was one of our favourite games on the 360. It also gives plenty of time for players to refresh their memories before Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
It’s always worth downloading a game even if you own a physical copy as you will then no longer need the disc. You could then give your physical copy to a friend or trade it in at your favourite games retailer towards something else.
EF will bring you news of the Games with Gold titles for February towards the end of January. In the meantime don’t forget to grab yourself copies of the games for December and then pick up the offerings for January as soon as they become available.
Remember you can still add all the games to your Xbox Live account even if you don’t own both an Xbox 360 and Xbox One!
