Microsoft has constantly rewarded its fans throughout this year, whether in the form of generous discounts or by offering awesome titles for free as a part of the Xbox One Games with Gold scheme. As such, Xbox Live Gold Subscribers have a pleasant surprise waiting for them as they move onto 2017 since the Games with Gold Lineup for January looks both exciting and interesting. To kick things off, Microsoft is offering four new titles for the month absolutely free. As expected, there are two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360 that will give Xbox gamers and their friends plenty of opportunities to compete and cooperate with each other. Below is the complete list:

Games With Gold January 2017 Lineup:

Xbox One

  • Deathtrap: World of Van Helsing (January 1-31)
  • Killer Instinct Season 2 (January 16-February 15)
  • Outlast (December 16-January 15)

Xbox 360

  • The Cave (January 1-15)
  • Rayman Origins (January 16-31)

Note that the Xbox 360 “Games With Gold” titles are also playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

What’s new? The tower-defense style game Deathtrap: World of Van Helsing is finally making its Xbox One debut a few of years after being made available on PC.

The Cave is a puzzle platformer/adventure game by Double Fine Productions and headed by creator of Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island’s maker, Ron Gilbert. The game takes you to an enchanted world where some unusual characters indulge themselves in a quest to discover their true destinies.

Rayman Origins is a grand 2D platformer, with some awesome level designs and zany characters on a journey to restore happy dreams to the Bubble Dreamer. Defeat monsters and overcome challenges in the Land of the Livid Dead.

Last but not the least, Killer Instinct Season 2 is an expansion for the popular fighting title.

Before getting too carried away with what’s to come next year, make the most of what you have now: There are only a few days left to try out the December Games with Gold lineup for free, as they will soon be returning to their normal prices.
