With New Year now officially coming, it is safe to assume that there are many players out there who still spend time with some of the best games in 2018 as they look forward to the fresh releases coming. While waiting for the new games in the store for this year, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can choose to pass the time with a few free titles that are now available thanks to the Games with Gold game program of January 2019.
Today, Xbox One owners who have an active subscription to Xbox Live Gold can get their hands on indie darling, Celeste at no additional cost, with the Matt Makes Games platform player available for free throughout the month long. The same fans can also get the isometric action adventure game Lara Croft and Guard of Light right now and play through the Backward Compatibility. However, there is a shorter window where you can buy Lara Croft release, as it will return at full price after January 15, 2019.
In halfway through the month, Microsoft will provide Xbox Live Gold subscribers with two more free games. For the first time, the racing game WRC 6: World Rally Championship will be available free of charge from January 16 to February 15, with Far Cry 2 offered for free from January 16 to January 31. Like the aforementioned Guardian of Light FC2 will return to full price after just over two weeks.
When it comes to available titles using the Games with Gold program, Xbox fans would love to know both Celeste and Lara Croft and Guard of Light ] Both solid choices well worth their time. In fact, we called Celeste one of the hidden gems of 2018 that some players may have missed, while Lara Croft and Guard of Light received a four-out of five from our review back in 2010.
