Free Games with Gold for January 2017
Start off the year with some platforming adventures, tower defense and fighting
Microsoft has announced the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for January 2017.
Making its debut and available from January 1-31 on Xbox One, World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap is a tower defense and action-RPG hybrid that comes with a versus mode, a cooperative campaign, and a single-player campaign that tasks you with defending the world against the horrors of the void.
Then from January 16-February 15 on Xbox One, members can grab Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition. The fighting game offers unique characters, fluid gameplay, and an open-ended combo system. Battle friends and challenging AI at home, or unleash your skills online against players around the world and in monthly ranked leagues.
On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via backwards compatibility), members can download The Cave between January 1-15. Assemble a team from an unlikely set of adventurers and plunge into this whimsical adventure platformer by Double Fine and Ron Gilbert.
Lastly, between January 16-31 members on Xbox 360 and Xbox One can download Rayman Origins. With over 60 levels ranging from platforming to musical ensembles to boss fights, Rayman will have his work cut out for him in rescuing the Teensies and saving the Glade.
These titles are available as free downloads for a limited time, for qualifying paid Xbox Live Gold members in all markets where Xbox Live is available.
