Microsoft reveals the free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in February 2018.
There’s a reasonable, if slightly unspectacular, lineup of games coming to Xbox Games with Gold next month.
From February 1, players can take on demonic hordes in Flying Wild Hog’s ageing FPS, Shadow Warrior. It’s by no means a bad game, but hardly feels essential with the likes of Doom and the Wolfenstein series available.
Arriving on February 16 is Assassins’ Creed Chronicles – India. Again, it’s not a bad game, and is probably the best title in a series of 2D Assassin’s Creed spin-offs that failed to live up to its potential.
If you prefer speed to stealth, Xbox Live Gold members also have two Xbox 360 racing games to look forward to. Sega’s Crazy Taxi speaks for itself, but our choice pick from February’s Games with Gold lineup is Black Rock Studio’s Split/Second. It’s an arcade racer of the highest calibre that was criminally overlooked on release. A must try.
Xbox Games With Gold: February 2018
- Shadow Warrior – February 1 – 28
- Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – India – February 16 – March 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Split/Second – February 1 – 15
- Crazy Taxi – February 16 – 28
Don’t forget, you can still download two games from January’s lineup. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III, and Army of Two are available until the end of this month. Zombi and Tomb Raider Underworld are available until February 15, 2018.
