Xbox Games With Gold For January 2020: Grab Your Free Games Now

If you’re an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate member, not only do you get access to online multiplayer and Game Pass (Microsoft’s subscription-based gaming service), but a quartet of free games every month, which you keep as long as your subscription is active. For January 2020, those games include a choice-based adventure game, a fighting game, and more.

This month’s lineup of games includes Styx: Shards of Darkness and Batman: The Telltale Series for Xbox One, along with Tekken 6 and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy for Xbox 360 (with Xbox One backward-compatibility). Styx and Tekken 6 are available now, and the other games will be available to download later this month.

Styx is a stealth-action game from 2017 that received a 6/10 from GameSpot for its uneven mix of fluid controls and spotty AI and mission structure. Batman was one of Telltale’s higher-profile licensed games and was well-received as a new take on the iconic character. Tekken and Lego Star Wars are classics from the last generation, and Lego Star Wars is being re-envisioned with a new “Skywalker Saga” game in 2020.

Don’t forget you can also still claim one free game from December’s Games with Gold: Jurassic World Evolution for Xbox One.

The Games with Gold are included with your Gold subscription, which enables Xbox Live online play. But you’re also a Live member if you have Game Pass Ultimate, which entitles you to Game Pass games on Xbox One and PC. That subscription is getting some heavy-hitters this week including Pillars of Eternity and The Witcher 3.
