Major Nelson announced the forthcoming lineup for Games With Gold in the coming month. It’s an outstanding lineup overall, with a high amount of variety. On the Xbox One side of things, from February 1 through Feb. 28, you can get Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, while Super Bomberman R is free from February 16 until March 15. On the Xbox 360, the first half of the month will get you Assassin’s Creed Rogue, while the second half features the outstanding Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. COTM is one of the finest 8-bit inspired games on the market, and feels like a natural evolution of Castlevania III.
Super Bomberman R is a flawed, but fun entry in the long-running series and a great inclusion for the service. Assassin’s Creed Rogue is one of the more underrated incarnations of the series and was hurt by being released late in the 360’s lifespan. Finally, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is an original Xbox gem that combines a bit of an RPG with a ton of action. It’s one of the best Star Wars games ever made and by being a freebie, it will have a chance to gain a whole new audience.
