Games With Gold: Grab Three Free Games Right Now
Catch up with Bruce Wayne in Batman: The Telltale Series
Along with online multiplayer access, Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate members get access to free games every month. Four games are spaced out over the course of the month, with new games rotating in every couple of weeks. As we're past the midway point of January, only three games are available to snag until the end of the month.
This month's lineup of games includes Styx: Shards of Darkness and Batman: The Telltale Series for Xbox One, along with Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy for Xbox 360 (with Xbox One backward-compatibility). Lego Star Wars II and Batman: The Telltale Series took the place of Tekken 6 on January 16.
Styx is a stealth-action game from 2017 that received a 6/10 from GameSpot for its uneven mix of fluid controls and spotty AI and mission structure. Batman was one of Telltale's higher-profile licensed games and was well-received as a new take on the iconic character. Lego Star Wars is a classic from the last generation, and Lego Star Wars is being re-envisioned with a new "Skywalker Saga" game in 2020.
The Games with Gold are included with your Gold subscription, which enables Xbox Live online play. But you're also a Live member if you have Game Pass Ultimate, which entitles you to Game Pass games on Xbox One and PC. That subscription received some heavy-hitters this week including Pillars of Eternity and The Witcher 3. A trio of great games--Gris, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Children of Morta--are coming to the service soon.
Xbox Games With Gold for January 2020
- Styx: Shards of Darkness (January 1-31)
- Batman: The Telltale Series (January 16-February 15)
- Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (January 16-31)
