Xbox Games with Gold

Microsoft has announced the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in January 2019.

Pick of the bunch is Celeste, the acclaimed platformer from Matt Makes Games. Packed with secrets and devious obstacles to overcome, the game is rich, rewarding, and also has an emotionally affecting story to tell. It’s available via Games with Gold from January 1, 2019.

Also coming to Xbox One is Kylotonn’s well-received rally racing game WRC 6.


January’s Xbox 360 games – which are also playable on Xbox One via the magic of backwards compatibility – are Lara Croft: Guardian of Light, the enjoyable 2010 isometric adventure game from Crystal Dynamics, and Ubisoft’s classic open world FPS, Far Cry 2.

  • Celeste – January 1 to 31
  • WRC 6 – January 16 to February 15

Xbox 360 and Xbox One

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.
