You’ve probably dropped a bunch of holiday cash on gifts for yourself and others, and heck, maybe you’ve thrown a lavish new year’s party. We know how it is. But dang it, you still want to play some hot new games. Well, don’t worry: Games with Gold is coming to the rescue! On Xbox One, Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition – the premier, combo-based, butt-kicking, mano-e-mano extravaganza – is first among your free offerings, followed by a brand new title to Xbox One, Zheros, an indie beat-em-up with an incredible art style.
On Xbox 360, Games with Gold gives gamers a gearhead’s dream with DiRT Showdown, the most recent off-road racing experience from the well-known Colin McRae series. As well, Xbox 360 gamers get Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the outstanding, multi-award-winning action RPG title that took the world by storm with its cyberpunk setting and deep, multi-pathed gameplay.
As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so don’t let the new year slow you down. Get downloading!
