February 2017’s Games with Gold: Stars, cars and ARRRs
February's Games with Gold have been announced.
Three little words: Games. With. Gold. It's music to the ears of gamers all over the world nearing payday. January's Games with Gold had a killer lineup with quirky co-op puzzler The Cave for Xbox 360 and the rebooted Killer Instinct for Xbox One.
Don't forget, you can currently score 10% off a year of Games with Gold.
In February, the couch-based co-op fun continues with Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Lovers is a charming indie title where up to four players co-pilot a spaceship, balancing responsibilities like the ship's weapons, engines, shield and mapping to avoid hazardous obstacles and combat galactic threats.
Also free for Xbox One owners in February is 2015's Project CARS. A fairly straight-forward racing title at its core, Project CARS features 74 cars to toy with and 23 real-life locations to burn rubber on.
Xbox 360 owners get an arguably sweeter deal depending on who you're asking. Owners of last gen's console score Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. As with all recent Xbox 360 Games With Gold titles, they're both backwards compatible for Xbox One owners, so everyone can blast some stormtroopers or take on pirates at will.
If you're a subscriber to both Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus, you should be quickly building quite a collection of point-and-click LucasArts adventures. November's Games with Gold included the first Monkey Island and this January's PS Plus games included Day of the Tentacle Remastered.
