Xbox Games With Gold Offers Up Assassin’s Creed Chronicles and Shadow Warrior in February
Microsoft has revealed their February 2018 Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup, which includes your standard two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games. Of course, the Xbox 360 games can be played on Xbox One via backward compatibility. Next month’s selection includes the 2D platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, 90s FPS reboot Shadow Warrior, explosion-heavy arcade racer Split/Second, and the Xbox 360 version of Sega’s classic Crazy Taxi.
Take on the role of Lo Wang, a shogun abandoned and left for dead by the corporation he used to work for. Now he must continue alone on the mission he was sent on – to retrieve a blade of unlimited power and fight demon gods from another world! Use an extensive range of weapons and magic to vanquish and banish Lo Wang’s enemies. Combine serious action with some well-placed juvenile humor and you have the recipe for a great action game.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India
Experience the Assassin’s Creed franchise in a whole new way in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. This unique take on the franchise brings the series’ epic gameplay to a 2.5D side-scroller experience. Plan wisely and solve puzzles while traversing the beautiful scenery without being discovered, obtaining new skills and items along the way.
Get behind the wheel of the fantastic action racing game Split/Second. Set within a reality television show, race through a made-for-TV city rigged to explode while blazing across racetracks as they’re set to detonate with you on them! Every lap is different, more challenging experience as the track starts to crumble due to the constant destruction of the race around you.
Money’s the name of the game in this taxi-ride into chaos! If you want to maximize your earnings and tips by delivering your passengers ahead of their expectations, you’ll have to bend a few laws (breaking them also may be required). Your driving skills will be put to the test as you weave and jump through traffic as you race the clock in this mad dash for cash!
Split/Second will be available from February 1 to 15, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles and Crazy Taxi will be available on February 16, and Shadow Warrior can be downloaded all month long. As always, once you download a Games With Gold title, you’ll have permanent access to it, so long as you still have an active Xbox Live Gold membership.
This month the Xbox 360 games are arguably the better options. I recall liking Split/Second quite a bit when it first game out, and you can’t go wrong with Crazy Taxi. Any of the free games strike your fancy this month?
