february games with gold 2016

The new free Games with Gold lineup for February 2016 has now been revealed. Players with an Xbox LIVE Gold account will be able to help themselves to a number of free games throughout February. The first two titles available for Xbox One players will be Hand of Fate - this title will be available for download from February 1st, all the way to the end of the month.

Starting from February 16, Styx: Master of Shadows will be the second exclusive Xbox One title available via the Games with Gold February lineup. Styx will remain available until March 15.

As for Xbox 360 titles, Sacred Citadel, an Xbox 360 arcade title, will be available from February 1 till February 15. After Sacred Citadel gets taken off the lineup, it will be replaced with Gears of War 2 which will remain on the lineup until February 29. All four of the titles cost just under $80 for the digital versions.

Both Gears of War 2 and Sacred Citadel can be played on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility so if you own the Xbox One you'll be able to pick up four free games this month. Once you have started downloading each of these titles, they will remain in your game library forever, even if you cancel your Gold subscription. There's no reason not to collect these games to build up your library, just make sure to collect them before they get replaced by other titles!
