The end of the month is close, so it is time for Major Nelson to do some announcements. Recently, on his website, an article revealed the February 2018 Games with Gold games. For our pleasure, killing and driving are the themes of next month’s offering.
On the official Xbox Channel on Youtube, a video shows them all in action. You can see it below:
Here is the full list:
- Shadow Warrior
- Available for free for the entire month of February
Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang as he is ordered to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power by his deceitful employer. Betrayed and left for dead, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm preparing to push our world to the brink of destruction. Now the reluctant hero must become legend through a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to uncover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish evil back into the darkness.
- Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India
- Available for free from February 16th to March 15th
• Travel across an amazing 19th-century India and its legendary landmarks Discover an exquisite depiction of Colonial India thanks to a palette of vibrant colours. Zip-line across the streets of Amritsar, hide in the shadows of the palace, and hunt legendary artifacts, following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great.
(Those games are available to play on an Xbox One console through backward compatibility.)
- Available for free from February 1st to February 15th
Split/Second is an intense arcade racing game set within the universe of a mega-budget, prime-time reality TV show. Contestants race to be the 1st across the finish line in a made-for-TV city built for destruction, with the ultimate goal of becoming the season champion. The city is rigged to blow and you’re in control of the action – bridges will fall, buildings will be reduced to clouds of dust and cars blown to pieces – devastating explosions will decimate your rivals and rip apart the track, creating new routes and challenging obstacles. Explosive stunts, demolition and balls-out racing thrills combine to create the ultimate high-octane racing experience! Buckle up…it’s about to get explosive out there!
- Crazy Taxi
- Available for free from February 16th to February 28th
Hey hey, come on over and have some fun with Crrrrrazy Taxi! Barrel through traffic packed streets, hurdle off parking garages, and Crazy Combo your way to Crazy Money in a wild frantic race to scare up the most fares. In Crazy Taxi, time is money, and only the Craziest Cabbies come out victorious.
I think the February 2018 Games with Gold list is pretty decent. I’ll admit that I don’t know Shadow Warrior, but the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series is very good. I also have very fond memories of Split/Second and Crazy Taxi. There’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s also great value in terms of achievements and value for money.
