One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in February 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Welcome to another exciting month of titles included with Games with Gold! This month on Xbox One we’ll get our hands on the cult-classic first-person shooter Shadow Warrior and travel to 19th century India in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. Then on Xbox 360 and Xbox One thanks to Backward Compatibility, we’ll get to experience the thrill of reality television racing in Split/Second as well as reliving those arcade racing days with the classic Crazy Taxi.
All games will be available exclusively for Xbox Live Gold members for a limited time as part of Games with Gold. With Xbox Live Gold, you get the most advanced multiplayer, free games, exclusive member discounts on games in the Microsoft Store, so get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action!

Take on the role of Lo Wang, a shogun abandoned and left for dead by the corporation he used to work for. Now he must continue alone on the mission he was sent on – to retrieve a blade of unlimited power and fight demon gods from another world! Use an extensive range of weapons and magic to vanquish and banish Lo Wang’s enemies. Combine serious action with some well-placed juvenile humor and you have the recipe for a great action game.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India
Experience the Assassin’s Creed franchise in a whole new way in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India. This unique take on the franchise brings the series’ epic gameplay to a 2.5D side-scroller experience. Plan wisely and solve puzzles while traversing the beautiful scenery without being discovered, obtaining new skills and items along the way.
Get behind the wheel of the fantastic action racing game Split/Second. Set within a reality television show, race through a made-for-TV city rigged to explode while blazing across racetracks as they’re set to detonate with you on them! Every lap is different, more challenging experience as the track starts to crumble due to the constant destruction of the race around you.
Money’s the name of the game in this taxi-ride into chaos! If you want to maximize your earnings and tips by delivering your passengers ahead of their expectations, you’ll have to bend a few laws (breaking them also may be required). Your driving skills will be put to the test as you weave and jump through traffic as you race the clock in this mad dash for cash!
