Xbox Live Games with Gold Revealed for February

February is almost here, and alongside the PlayStation Plus game being revealed, Xbox have also revealed what they are offering. It may be fair to say that Xbox One owners are getting the better deal this team.

The games have been revealed by Xbox and will include:

  • Hand of Fate (Xbox One)
  • Styx: Master of Shadows (Xbox One)
  • Sacred: Citadel (Xbox 360)
  • Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360, Xbox One through Backwards Compatibility)

As usual the games won’t be released together, Hand of Fate and Sacred: Citadel will be the first two to unlock and be available from February 1. While Hand of Fate is available all month though, Sacred: Citadel will leave the service February 15. Styx: Master of Shadows will be available from February 16 to March 15, with Gears of War 2 being available from February 16 – February 29.

With the Xbox One games that are brought to the Xbox Live Games with Gold Service all being on the Backwards Compatibility list this means that the entire list should be available for Xbox One owners. This means that they’ll be getting Gears of War 2 which should make many people happy.

Comparing the games to the list revealed for PlayStation Plus it is fair to say that this selection is better than the ones for the PlayStation 4. While Gears of War 2 may be an older release, it is still part of one of the most popular franchises to come to the Microsoft console.
