Xbox Games with Gold - January 2017

Here are the four titles coming to Xbox Games With Gold in January 2017.

Microsoft have announced the Xbox Live Games With Gold line-up for January 2017, and it’s pretty good. On Xbox One comes World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap. The ID@Xbox tower defense action-RPG hybrid is available all month. It’s joined on 16 January by the popular fighting game, Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition.

Over on Xbox 360 – and Xbox One through the magic of Backwards Compatibility – are two bonafide gems in the shape of Double Fine’s The Cave and Ubisoft’s spectacular platformer, Rayman Origins.


Xbox Games With Gold January 2016

  • World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap ($19.99 ERP): January 1-31 on Xbox One
  • The Cave ($14.99 ERP):  January 1-15 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One
  • Killer Instinct Season2 Ultra Edition ($39.99 ERP): January 16-February 15 on Xbox One
  • Rayman Origins ($14.99 ERP): January 16-31 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

There’s still time to pick up two of last month’s Games with Gold releases: Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition and Burnout Paradise. If you’ve never played the later we urge you to pick it up before it’s too late. It’s the perfect game to play over the Christmas break and is still one of the best racing games released in the last decade.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
