Now Playing: January 2018 Xbox One And 360 Free Games With Gold Announced

The first of January 2018's free Games With Gold titles for Xbox One and Xbox 360 are now available for subscribers. On Xbox One, the action RPG The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III is completely free all month long. You play as the famous monster hunter on a journey to take down one of your toughest foes yet.

On Xbox 360, Square Enix's Tomb Raider Underworld is now available for the low, low price of $0.00. Note that this game plays on Xbox One through backwards compatibility, so Xbox One owners can pick it up as well. One of December 2017's free Xbox One Games With Gold titles, Back to the Future: The Game, remains free until January 15.

No Caption Provided

Then on January 16, a new set of free Xbox One and Xbox 360 games will be available, including Zombi (Xbox One) and Army of Two (Xbox 360). You can see the full Games With Gold lineup for January 2018 down below. You need to have an Xbox Live Gold membership to get these games, but claiming them will allow you to continue playing for as long as you are a subscriber.

What are the Adventures Of Van Helsing like? Are they good?

@midna: I have throughly enjoyed the first 2 games. Their basically isometric games like Torchlight or Divinity Original Sin. The story is ok, but the gameplay is a lot of fun. I can't wait to dive in to the 3rd installment and the fact that its Xbox One X enhanced is definitely a bonus.

@midna: A bit like Diablo but tougher. I liked the first one despite many flaws and the later installments look like they’ve only gotten better.

WHY??? I pay gold for months and i don't know why become that Tomb Raider is not available for all regions, So what is the point of gold and free with gold if i don't get all games and paying same as any one else in UK or US. Same thing is with Netflix but still there i have hundreds of movies so its not useless . Please if you have some contacts ask them why i pay same then, or then make prices for countries for each one regard content. Thank you.

@astralravenko:

You can hot swap regions tho (either using the website, Xbox app on pc, or do it in the Xbox setting), it's how I do to get different good games from US and Japan store.

Keen to try Van Helsing, probably claim Underworld for my library at least. Not that interested in Army of Two or Back to the Future.

The Van Helsing games are actually really good, super fun, and Van Helsing 3 is definitely worth playing...especially for it being free. The whole Van Helsing series is a hidden gem

@Terrorantula: Then don't. It certainly won't effect my enjoyment with the game, or anyone else for that matter.

@Terrorantula: Van Helsing 3 is brilliant actually and has 3 modes for the X , 4k mode, oddly a 1620p mode balanced and a 1080p 60 mode as well. The only downside is you cant change the mode outside the title screen but saving and loading is very fast.

I don't even own an Xbox One anymore. PS4, 360 and PC do me just fine.

@bubba_666: What a load or crap. Anyone who owned both a 360 and Xbox One and decided to get rid of the Xbox One as opposed to the 360, especially given the fact that Xbox One has a ton of backwards compatible games....well, that decision makes absolutely zero sense. I'm betting your not the sharpest tool in the shed, lol.

What n coincident, I gave up PsStore (also Steam and PlayStore) not long ago cause buying multiplats from PsStore seem illogical...
