Not long after Sony announced what’s coming next month, Microsoft has followed suit, with four games that’ll come out across Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Remember, as with PlayStation Plus, these games aren’t actually “free.” They require an active subscription to Xbox Live Gold to download and access them.


With Xbox One, though two of the games are Xbox 360 games, backwards compatibility is flipped on for every game that’s made part of Games With Gold.

Anyway, here’s the lineup!

Xbox One

  • Hand of Fate
  • Syx: Master of Shadows
  • Sacred Citadel
  • Gears of War 2

Xbox 360

  • Gears of War 2
  • Sacred Citadel
