Here’s what’s coming your way next month Xbox fans

Microsoft have announced the games that will be given away free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers in the month of February.

As always we’ll get our hands on two games for the Xbox One and a pair of classic games from the 360 or original Xbox.

You can see their announcement video below.

For the Xbox One, Microsoft are giving away:

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Available: 1-28 February

A Castlevania-inspired side-scrolling, 2D platformer. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon was released last year and sold over 100,000 copies in its first week for its almost too faithful homage of the 8-bit Castlevania game series. 

Super Bomberman R

Available:16 February – 15 March

A top-down action-maze adventure and the first entry in the main Bomberman series in over a decade. This game was released in 2017 on the Nintendo Switch and later in 2018 on PC, PS4 and Xbox.

The game had sold over a million copies by August 2018 and Xbox players will now be able to get their hands on the title for free.  

As for the classic games we’ll get in February:

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

Available: 1-15 February

Rogue is probably the Assassin’s Creed game many players missed upon release, as it came out for the Xbox 360 and PS3 just as gamers were making the switch to the new generation of consoles.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is the spiritual sequel to the highly-acclaimed Pirate-them-up, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, which sees you play as the most Irish-sounding character in all of gaming history, Shay Patrick Cormac. As an Assassin turned evil Templar, you’re tasked with hunting down members of the Assassin brotherhood. 

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Academy

Available: 16-28 February

And finally we come to an absolute classic from the days of the original Xbox. 

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Academy, released in Autumn 2003, lets you master the force as a lightsaber-wielding member of Luke Skywalker’s Jedi training academy.

While not the prettiest game to look at, Jedi Knight: Academy could be the game to quench players’ thirst for a story-driven Star Wars game after EA’s downright mishandling of the Star Wars license.

What do you make of February’s Games with Gold line-up?
