The free titles available to Xbox Live Gold members in February 2016 have been unveiled and the selection certainly comes from a variety of genres. Following tradition, two Xbox 360 titles and two Xbox One games are being made free of charge at certain times next month, although the Xbox 360 titles will also be backwards compatible to ensure those with an Xbox One can take advantage of all featured games.
The Xbox One is offering the deck-building RPG Hand of Fate (regularly $19.99 USD) throughout the entire month of February, while the stealth title Styx: Master of Shadows (normally $29.99 USD) will be available for free from February 16 until March 15.
For Xbox 360 owners, Sacred Citadel (regularly $9.99 USD) will be free of charge from February 1 until the 15, at which point Gears of War 2 (normally $19.99 USD) will replace it until the end of the month.
With this varied assortment of titles available for free next month, are you planning on downloading any of them? How do you feel the Games With Gold program is doing in general? Are there any genres you feel are being ignored or overused? Let us know in the comments below!
