Every month, Microsoft offers four Xbox games at no additional cost to those subscribing to its Xbox Live Gold service.
However, in February 2021, the company will offer five titles as part of its Games with Gold program.
Here are the games:
- Gears 5 (normally $ 49.99 CAD) – Available February 1 – 28 [also on Xbox Game Pass]
- Demonic resident (normally $ 25.99) – Available February 1 – 28
- Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition (normally $ 14.99) – Available February 16 – March 15
- Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb (Typically $ 9.99) – Available Feb 1-15 (Original Xbox game playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility)
- Lost planet 2 (normally $ 19.99) – Available February 16-28 (Xbox 360 game playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility)
In particular, the inclusion of Demonic resident – an enhanced version of the GameCube 2002 remake of the first game in the series – comes on the heels of Capcom’s announcement that Resident Evil Village It will be released on May 7.
The sum of Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s TombMeanwhile, it comes just a week after Lucasfilm announced a partnership with Bethesda in a new Indiana Jones game.
It is also worth noting that Gears 5 – which I recently got a downloadable story plugin – was developed by The Coalition of Vancouver itself.
Please note that all Games with Gold titles are playable on Xbox One, as well as new Microsoft consoles, Xbox Series X and S, thanks to backward compatibility.
However, it is important to note that alongside the new Games with Gold announcement, Microsoft is also increasing the price of Xbox Live Gold. Until now, Xbox Live Gold costs $ 11.99 / month in Canada or $ 29.99 / three months.
Now, one-month Gold memberships are increasing by $ 1 USD (approximately $ 1.27 CAD) and the price of a 3-month membership is increasing by $ 5 USD (approximately $ 6.34 CAD). You can find more information about it here.
That being said, Xbox Live Gold is also included in a $ 16.99 / mo Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership along with Game Pass for console and PC, Android game streaming and EA Play.
