January is set to be a pretty big month for Xbox Live's gold game, but it seems you don't have to wait for the calendar to roll over to 2019 before you can play. Microsoft has sent a couple of months of games live a little early, which means you can start playing them right away. One of these games is Celeste which is definitely headliner for January.
Considered one of the best games of the year, Celeste is a challenging platform player with a retro feel to it. There is, of course, no shortage of retro-inspired platform players out there these days, but Celeste manages many of them thanks to landscaping, soundtrack and protagonist, Madeline.  It's a bit surprising to see Celeste included as part of Games with Gold, as it was only released in January 201
Later in January, Celeste and Lara Croft: Guard of Light will be joined by WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship on the Xbox One and Far Cry 2 on the Xbox 360. As always, the Xbox 360 games are playable on the Xbox One as well, so Xbox One owners get four games to check out in January.
It's hard to see how Microsoft can beat a game with Gold line up that includes Celeste but we & # 39; ll see if it can when we move through 2019. Celeste will be available throughout January, so there's no rush to download it right away. Nevertheless, if you find yourself nothing to do on New Year's Eve, you can do far worse than getting through Celeste .
