January’s Games With Gold for Xbox have been announced. And, it’s going to be a pretty good month. On the Xbox One side of things, Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition is coming along with Zheroes.
Killer Instinct is free to play, but additional characters cost money. That’s where Season 1 Ultra Edition comes in. You’re getting all the Season 1 characters including Jago, Sabrewulf, Thunder Glacius, Sadira, Orchid, Spinal and Fulgore. Plus, several costumes, accessory packs and the Killer Instinct classic game.
It’s a fantastic fighting game with badass music.
Zheroes is a 3D brawler. Want an old school beat’em up with clean graphics? Maybe give Zheroes a shot.
Xbox 360 games are getting a lot more attention these days now that we can play them on Xbox One. Need your rally racing fix? DiRT Showdown will do nicely. Race a wide range of rally cars and trucks. Or, smash them into each other.
Wrapping up the Xbox 360 offerings is Deus Ex Human Revolution. Catch up on the Deus Ex story ahead of next August’s release of Deus Ex Mankind Divided.
