Start the New Year Off Right with January’s Great Games with Gold Titles
With 2015 coming to a close and a new year quickly approaching on the horizon, it’s about time another month of Game with Gold titles was announced. Continuing the trend of offering Xbox One owners double the free games with Xbox 360 titles available through backward compatibility, January will be starting the year off with some serious butt-kicking.
Available only for a limited time, January’s great line up of Xbox One games will be led by Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition – available January 1 to 31 – with its flashy, combo-centric fighting gameplay. Taking a cue from the golden days of sidescrolling brawlers and making its Xbox One debut as part of Games with Gold, Zheros – available January 16 to February 15 – will have gamers stringing together combos in a bright and beautiful futuristic universe. On Xbox 360 and Xbox One with Backward Compatibility, DiRT Showdown – available January 1 to 15 – will find players behind the wheel of rally cars and trucks in racing and demolition-based events, while Deus Ex: Human Revolution – available January 16 to 31 – will drop gamers headlong into an open-ended cyberpunk narrative full of political intrigue and cybernetics.
