The full line-up for Xbox Live's Games With Gold program has been announced, and though there isn't much, it's a strong inventory for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.


This month they're digging deep into their inventory with Gears of War 2 and Hand of Fate. Thankfully the games available for the Xbox 360 are also completely playable through backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, so if you've already upgraded, you can enjoy all the titles listed below. The first batch of games, Hand of Fate and Sacred Citadel, will be available on February 1st while Styx and Gears of War 2 will become available on February 16th. Happy hunting.

Xbox One

  • Hand of Fate - An action role-playing game with deck-building and roguelike elements.
  • Styx: Master of Shadows - A stealth adventure with RPG mechanics.

Xbox 360 (backward compatible on Xbox One)

  • Gears of War 2 - One of the best cover-based shooters for the Xbox 360.
  • Sacred Citadel - A cooperative beat-em-up game.
