If you are looking for some adventure in the form of video games to play next month, LucasArts’ Monkey Island 2: Special Edition will be available for free on Xbox 360 and Xbox One from February 1 to 15. Players will be able to get their hands on the game at no cost thanks to Microsoft’s Games with Gold promo.

Monkey Island: Special Edition marks the return of Guybrush Threepwood, who sets out to show off his skills and strength as the greatest pirate in the world. Unfortunately for him, undead pirate Lechcuk is out to challenge his might.

Here is the game’s description on the Xbox Marketplace:

“Relive the second hilarious swashbuckling misadventure of the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood as he searches for the lost treasure of Big Whoop, attempts to win back the beautiful Elaine Marley and takes on the now evil zombie pirate, LeChuck! Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge faithfully re-imagines the original classic in signature special edition detail. Plus, interact with the world of Monkey Island like never before with new direct-character controls, an interactive object highlight system, behind the scenes art viewer and creator commentary featuring the original developers of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge!”

Players will be able to play the game on Xbox 360 and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility in select countries where Xbox Live is available.
