Free games with Gold have been revealed for January. Xbox users can now find out what games will be made available for free next month. As for Playstation users, Sony has a habit of not releasing the titles until the very last week before the new month. However, they have revealed the games coming to the Playstation 4.
For Xbox Live Gold users with an Xbox One, the free game is D4: Dreams Don’t Die. D4 is an episodic, cell shaded, adventure from Access Games that utilizes the Kinect motion and voice controls. In the game you are a private investigator whose wife has been murdered. After her death the main character loses much of his memories surrounding the event, but also gains the ability to travel through time. This ability is tied directly to finding specific objects that bring him back to different times. He uses this ability to try and solve his wife’s murder so he can go back in time to prevent it.
For Xbox 360 users with a Gold subscription they get two free games, MX vs. ATV Alive and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. MX vs. ATV Alive is an off road racing game, which is fairly self explanatory. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition is an action RPG created by CD Projekt RED. In the game you take control of Geralt of Rivia, who is one of the last Witchers, who are genetically enhanced humans that have been raised to fight monsters and have special powers. The enhanced edition added over 10 GB of content onto the original game, including more gameplay and new cinematics.
For Playstation Plus users with a Playstation 4, they will be receiving both infamous First Light, and The Swapper. InFAMOUS First Light is a standalone DLC developed by Facepalm games for inFAMOUS Second Son that follows the back-story of Fetch that show her capture and later escape to Seattle. Fetch has neon powers which allow her to absorb, redirect, and control neon light. In this action adventure game, you follow Fetch’s story as she explains how she ended up in a D.U.P. prison, and eventually leading up to her escape in the present. The Swapper is a side scrolling platform puzzle game developed by Facepalm games. The game has the player trapped on a damaged space station, where orbs are hidden throughout the levels that are needed to open doors. Early on the player finds a cloning tool which lets the player create up to four clones simultaneously, and the ability to swap control between them as long as there is line of sight.
Xbox Gold users with an Xbox One will get D4: Dreams Don’t Die for free with their Xbox Live Gold subscription in January. Xbox 360 Gold subscribers will get MX vs. ATV Alive and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition. For Playstation Plus subscribers who have a Playstation 4, they will get both inFAMOUS First Light and The Swapper. Probably sometime later this week Sony will reveal the rest of their free games for January.
