As a reminder, you will need to have an active Gold account to play the titles.

Here are the Games with Gold for January

January looks like it will be a pretty solid month for free games, with the Xbox One title Celeste headlining the entire span of the month. Celeste is a colorful, pixelated platform title that has you climbing a mountain and dealing with traps and puzzles to press forward. The title recently won Best Independent game at the 2018 Game Awards.

In addition to Celeste, WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship will also be available from January 16 to February 15. Featuring a large number of tracks and championships, if you’re looking for a racing game but hate spending money, this one is for you.

Other games coming in January

In addition to the games above, Xbox 360 (backward compatible with Xbox One) is getting two free games, as well.

  • Laura Croft and the Guardian of Light – January 1-15
  • Far Cry 2 – January 16-31

Overall, a pretty solid month, and at the end of the day, free is free.
