January Xbox Games with Gold include Tomb Raider, Zombi

Microsoft has released details of January 2018’s free games available via its Games with Gold programme. Xbox One owners will be able to grab Zombi, Back to the Future: The Game and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, while Xbox 360 owners can download Tomb Raider: Underworld and Army of Two.

Happily, both those Xbox 360 games will also be backwards-compatible on Xbox One. Tomb Raider: Underworld and Back to the Future: The Game will only be available until 15 January, Army of Two and Zombi will become available on 16 January and The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will be available throughout the month.

We all love free games, so make sure you take advantage of Microsoft’s programme if you subscribe to it.
