January 2018 Xbox One And 360 Free Games With Gold Announced

Four more freebies on the way.


The end of the month--and year--are in sight. With January right around the corner, Microsoft has announced the lineup of free Games With Gold titles that Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download throughout January on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

As always, there are a total of four games split across the two platforms. On Xbox One, action RPG The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III will be free for the entire month. This marks the game's launch on Xbox One, and it'll come with (unspecified) Xbox One X enhancements. Starting on January 16, it'll be joined by Zombi, the modified version of Wii U launch game ZombiU. One of the current freebies, Back to the Future: The Game, will also continue to be available during the first part of January.

Now Playing: Xbox - January 2018 Games With Gold Trailer

On the Xbox 360 side, Tomb Raider: Underworld will be available for the first half of the month. It will be replaced by co-op action game Army of Two. As with every Xbox 360 game released through Games With Gold, these both support Xbox One backwards compatibility, meaning Xbox One owners with Gold get a total of four freebies in January.

The first of these games will be available on January 1. You have until then to claim the current batch of December Games With Gold freebies; in addition to the aforementioned Back to the Future, you can pick up Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide and Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death for free through the end of December. Gold members also receive additional discounts as part of the ongoing Xbox holiday sale right now.
