February's Games With Gold Lineup Features Swords and Speed

Microsoft announces expansion of Montreal AI research lab

The first Shadow Warrior game launched in 1997 and was heralded as significant evolution for the first-person shooter genre. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India is getting the Games with Gold treatment as well, as are Split/Second and Crazy Taxi for the Xbox 360 (both of which will be backward compatible).

In case you missed it, Xbox Game Pass will, from now on, offer all Microsoft published games simultaneously with their respective retail release dates. Then, from February 16 through the end of the month, Live Gold members will be able to download the open world racing game Crazy Taxi, normally $9.99, for free. From their point of view, it's pointless to sell Xbox products because their new Game Pass announcement will cut into software sales. Some of the downloadable contents will be made available on the first day and the others on the 16th of the month. Thus, obviously, it's a free deal that only applies to Xbox One players.

It's also a good release for Xbox One X owners to try, with the game's 4K graphical overhaul receiving plaudits from professional pixel counters. It can be fun, no doubt, but it isn't the classic you know and love.

Microsoft is continuing to bolster the subscription service, and this addition cues a huge sigh of relief from those hopeful of Game Pass' potential. Players will get four new games including "Crazy Taxi", "Assassin's Creed", And More.

Games for Gold freebies are only available for subscribers.
