With the year 2018 drawing nearer to an end, Microsoft has announced its Xbox games of Gold for January 2019. Don’t understand what it is? Nothing. It is just a solid package of Xbox One and Xbox 360 games which Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold Membership can access, i.e. can download and play for free. Just imagine this to be Microsoft’s New Year Gift for its Live Gold Members.
Here is the list of games that Xbox One and Xbox 360 players can download and play –
A. Xbox One –
1. Never Alone
There must not be any Xbox user (or perhaps Android and iOS user) who dies not know about Never Alone. It is pretty famous among puzzle gamers. It is basically a puzzle-platformer adventure game involving a girl abs her fox, where players can swap places between both the characters. The fox is swift and fast and the girl can pick things up and unlock new chapters. Players can have access to the game between December 16, 2018 and January 15, 2019.
Man, this is a game to be talked about. This is a platformer game which has pixelated graphics, and is all about jumping and dashing through some seriously challenging and expertly designed obstacles, with the goal to make way to the peak of the mountain. It has simple but tight controls which players need to master so add to face challenges like terrain riddled with things like pits, spikes, bounce pads, and toxic black goo. But don’t worry. The checkpoint system will ensure that you ate not far behind when you try the next time after you fail! This game will be available between January 1 and January 31 of 2019.
3. WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship
All puzzle and adventure games are not good. So here is the realistic really racing game where you will come face to face with all types of challenges like mud, fog, darkness, and ice. And wait. Car troubles such as puncture and engine breakdown will add to the woes. If you are ready to face the challenges, then go grab the game between January 16, 2019 and February 15, 2019.
