Xbox Live Gold subscribers to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S can now download not one, not two, not three, not four, but five games for free, but only for a limited time, as part of Games With Gold. The first and most notable of these five games is Gir 5, which can be downloaded for free until 28 February. Gir 5 debuted back in 2019 via The Coalition, and it’s not only the greatest free game on offer, but the third person cover shooter is without a doubt the best free game on offer as well.
The second of these five fights is Dandara: Trials of Fear Editiona 2D platforms meet Metroidvania sent by the Brazilian studio Long Hat House and released by Raw Fury back in 201
The third of these games is a classic and one of the most influential games of all time: Resident Evil. That’s right, the original survival-horror classic is also available for free, but that Gir 5, it is only available on site until the end of the month.
The fourth of these free games is Lost Planet 2, an Xbox 360 game that can be played on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S via backward compatibility. Developed by Capcom, the third-person shooter debuted back in 2010.
The fifth and final game is only available in Argentina, which means you have to create an account for this region. Fortunately, not only is this free, but it’s pretty easy to do. That said, once you have done this, you can also download it Darksiders, which also hit back in 2010 via Vigil Games and THQ.
As always, all these free games are free downloads. In other words, they are not free trials. Once downloaded, they are yours to keep as long as you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. If this subscription expires, you will lose access to all games downloaded through it until you subscribe to the backup.
Xbox Live Gold is available via Xbox 360, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. For more coverage on that and all things on Xbox, click here or check out the relevant links below:
