Another great month has passed, and now it's time to reveal Microsoft's batch of free games for the month of February. Microsoft has just revealed four games that will be free to download for Xbox Live Gold members. These games will be available to play across both consoles, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Last month, Microsoft revealed four games to the community, Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition, Zheros, DiRT Showdown, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This month is a completely different ball game. As last month, the two free games that will be available on Xbox 360 will also be available on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. This means you can play those two games that were available only on Xbox 360 on your Xbox One as well.
The first game that players will be able to download and play is Hand of Fate, a hybrid roguelike action RPG deck builder which will be available from February 1-29. The objective of the game is to complete quests, earn new cards, and build decks. Towards the end you draw your cards, play your hand, and discover your fate. The second game title is Styx: Masters of Shadow, a stealth video game which will be available to download from February 16 - March 15. The objective of the games is to make your way through a dark fantasy universe and steal/assassinate enemies to stay alive.
Continuing with the rest of the lineup, Microsoft presents the third free game to be Sacred Citadel, an action brawler video game which will be available to play from February 1-15. The objective of this game is to defeat all evil within the Ashen empire in a place known as Ancaria, which use to be a peaceful land until it was taken over by the Ashen empire. The last game Microsoft is giving out in this lineup is Gears of War 2, a third person shooter game which will be available from February 16-29. Gears of War 2 is one of the games in the famous series Gears of War. These last two Xbox 360 games will be able to be play on Xbox One as mentioned earlier, as they are both now a part of the backward compatibility program.
