Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope you all had an opportunity to enjoy the holidays and ring in the New Year the way you wanted…
However I know there may be a few of you that are still recovering from the holiday season, while others may already be feeling the pressure of their New Year’s resolutions. But you’re in luck, because its that time of the month again when Xbox Live Members get access to their free games for the month of January.
So take a moment for yourself and game on!
Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition: The latest iteration of a long, proud line of brutal and eminently accessible fighting games that focus on combos, flash, and fun, rather than twitch reflexes and perfect timing. Available for free the entire month of January.
Zheros: Dr. Vendetta and his hordes of robotic minions are hell bent on ruling the galaxies, only the intergalactic agents of the Zheros Squad stand in their way. Set in a beautiful and futuristic universe with brightly colored graphics, a humorous cast of playable characters, and local co-op. Available January 16th to February 15th.
DiRT Showdown: Get behind the wheel of a variety of rally cars and trucks in a whole mess of racing, demolition, “Hoonigan,” and party events – both single- and multiplayer. Winning events nets you prize money, which means unlocking higher difficulty levels, more events, and deeper challenges. Available for free from January 1st to 15th.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Set in a cyberpunk Detroit following the advent of commonplace cybernetic enhancements (or “augmentations”) to human society, you play Adam Jensen – a security expert who gets caught up in a (possibly not-so-accidental) explosion and has all of his limbs and most of his organs replaced with cybernetic parts, against his will. Available for free from January 16th through 31st.
