Usually, December is the one month of the year where we get nostalgic and look back at what we just lived through the past 12 months. Microsoft doesn’t seem to agree with this, though, and they’re already looking at their bright future, and all the good things that will be happening in January 2016. And so, they have already announced the Xbox Live Games With Gold free games we will be able to play throughout the Xbox ecosystem, including 2 Xbox One games, and 2 Xbox 360 games that will also be playable on Xbox One – and what games those are.

This fighting game will be available for free on Microsoft’s latest home console, and will bring to the table most of classic cast along with endless combos and a high skill ceiling – we promise it’s gonna keep you coming back for more.

Zheros (Xbox One), from January 16 to February 15


Zheros is an action adventure title, which happens to be fantastic for couch co-op, and having a friend or family member sitting next to you. Players will progress through levels defeating enemies and solving situations, not unlike what happens in the Ratchet & Clank series.

Dirt Showdown (Xbox 360 and Xbox One), January 1 to January 15:


One of the best racing & rally games on the Xbox 360 will now be available for both Microsoft machines, and comes with demanding trials and intense racing. It’s quite awesome if you want to just sit down and enjoy a few laps in fast, customizable cars.

The big star this month is Deus Ex: Human Revolution, one of the most acclaimed games from the last generation. This title tells the story of Adam Jensen, a survivor from a terrorist attack who has been implanted with robotic limbs in order to save him, and who is now trying to understand what happened the day of the tragedy. The game takes place in a huge cyberpunk sandbox encompassing several cities and is heavy on the roleplaying side of things.

Microsoft plans to start the year with a bang and several Xbox free games from many different genres. Our recommendations this month are Killer Instinct if you like fighting games, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution above all – that game is awesome.
