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. To that end, members should make sure to snag one of this month’s games soon, before it’s gone.
This month’s lineup of games includes Styx: Shards of Darkness and Batman: The Telltale Series for Xbox One, along with Tekken 6 and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy for Xbox 360 (with Xbox One backward-compatibility). Today’s the last day to grab Tekken 6 before it’s replaced by Lego Star Wars II and Batman: The Telltale Series on January 16. You have until the end of the month to claim Styx.
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. Tekken and Lego Star Wars are classics from the last generation, and Lego Star Wars is being re-envisioned with a new “Skywalker Saga” game in 2020.
Don’t forget you can also still claim one free game from December’s Games with Gold: Jurassic World Evolution for Xbox One.
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 is getting some heavy-hitters this week including Pillars of Eternity and The Witcher 3.
