Microsoft Confirms Xbox Live Games With Gold For February 2018

The first Shadow Warrior game launched in 1997 and was heralded as significant evolution for the first-person shooter genre. Microsoft said the inclusion of blockbuster titles to the game pass is the top request among Xbox gamers. PC players will get their chance at the same deal from February 1 through February 4.

While Xbox 360 owners are restricted to the latter two titles, backwards compatibility means that Xbox One owners are free to grab all four Games With Gold titles as they appear throughout February.

February's two free Xbox 360 games are two very different takes on vehicular mayhem. Every lap is different, more challenging experience as the track starts to crumble due to the constant destruction of the race around you.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India sees you embody Arbaaz in his quest for retribution through a colourful depiction of 19th century Colonial India in 2.5D stealth gameplay. It will be free for the first half of the month.

Shadow Warrior tells the story of a reluctant hero by the name of Lo Wang. It was rebooted for the console in 2013.

"Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India" came out in 2016.

The Magic series doesn't have quite so many votes as others games on the official Xbox site, however, this does bode quite well for the future. It's possible the third game, Russia, will be offered sometime down the line.

But it's not just the most immediate upcoming exclusives that will be available through the subscription service. Crazy Taxi still brings back fond memories of the Dreamcast, and that Split Second? Unlike in the United Kingdom, the Xbox One is also well behind the PlayStation 4 in terms of sells on the Continent - so it's not like they're killing off their biggest seller.
