This weekend, February is upon us, and with it comes a refreshed line up of free monthly games with Xbox Games with Gold. A varied list across both platforms, but probably stuff you haven’t played either, which is good.
On Xbox 360, starting Monday, 01 February, Sacred Citadel will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through February 15th. Then on February 16th, you can download Gears of War 2 (“NIIIIICEEEE!!!!” says Marcus Fenix) for free through February 29th. If you bought Gears of War Ultimate Edition between its launch date and Christmas, you should have all the Gears titles available to you anyway.
It’s also worth pointing out that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is still free to download, which is backwards compatible too, so count that as another freebie for the time being. Styx is obviously a stealthy title, and could make a change from the likes of Thief or MGS5 if you want more of that coy gameplay mechanic.
