February’s Games With Gold Offers Sniper Elite, IDARB and More
Not doing anything for Valentine's Day? Xbox is bringing all the love you need via its Games With Gold offerings for the month of February.
The Xbox Wire has revealed the three games Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download for free during the month of February. January proved to be a good month for Xbox owners, with The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die proving to be quality free games to download when compared to previous offerings. January was a step up from the previous months where Sony's PlayStation Plus initiative offered higher quality titles for free when compared to Xbox's Games With Gold throughout 2014.
Throughout all of February, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download It Draws A Red Box (widely known as #IDARB) for Xbox One. #IDARB is a crowdsourced title that mixes party, fighting, platformer and fighting game mechanics into 8-player skirmishes. From Feb. 1-15, Xbox 360 owners with an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be able to download the medieval fantasy title, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which tells a compelling tale of the bond that exists between siblings. For the rest of the month, Xbox 360 players can get Sniper Elite V2 via Games With Gold. Sniper Elite takes all the things we love about World War II-era first-person shooters with an heavy focus on what goes on between your crosshairs. Given the popularity of 'American Sniper,' this is a smart decision by Microsoft to make V2 a free download for players on Xbox 360.
Make sure you download D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die for Xbox One and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360 before they're replaced by these new Games With Gold.
