Microsoft has announced the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in February.
The Xbox One is graced with Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, the retro-style Castlevania homage from Inti Creates. It’s an entertaining enough game in its own right, but also serves as a prequel to the Kickstarter-funded Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is due for release later this year.
Also coming to Xbox One is Konami’s action maze game, Super Bomberman R. After a rough launch on Nintendo Switch, a slew of content updates have improved the game. For long-term Xbox fans it should be good enough to banish any lingering memories of Bomberman: Act Zero.
February’s Xbox 360 games – which are also playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility – are Assassin’s Creed Rogue, and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Xbox Games With Gold – February 2019
- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon– February 1 to 28
- Super Bomberman R – February 16 to March 15
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Assassin’s Creed Rogue – February 1 to 15
- Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy – February 16 to 28
There’s still time to download three games from January’s Games with Gold lineup. Celeste and Far Cry 2 are available until this Thursday. WRC 6 is available until February 15, 2019.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
