Microsoft reveals the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in January 2020.
The Force is strong with next month’s Xbox Games with Gold releases, sort of. Strong in the original trilogy, last-generation, Lego sense.
Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy and Tekken 6 are the two Xbox 360 games that are free to download for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Despite their age, both games are pretty good fun and well worth adding to your account. Both games are also available on Xbox One via the wizardry of backwards compatibility.
January’s Xbox One games are Cyanide’s stealth action game Styx: Shards of Darkness, and the original version of Batman: The Telltale Series. This is not to be confused with the recently released Shadows Edition.
January’s Xbox Games with Gold games are available on the following dates.
Xbox Games With Gold – January 2020
- Styx: Shards of Darkness – January 1 – 31, 2020
- Batman: The Telltale Series – January 16 – February 15, 2020
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Tekken 6 – January 1 – 15, 2020
- Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy – January 16 – 31, 2020
Three of December’s games also remain available to download. Insane Robots is free until December 30, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD is available until the end of the month, and Jurassic World Evolution is free until January 15, 2020.
