Games with Gold February 2018: Crazy Taxi, Shadow Warrior, & More

As per our monthly ritual, Microsoft has announced the next four games poised to hit your Xbox consoles for free via Games with Gold. Let’s take a look.

For the Xbox One, February starts with the free download of Shadow Warrior. To stop a demonic invasion, you’ll have to utilize “a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit.”

The title is a single-player first-person shooter with melee combat too developed by Flying Wild Hog and published by Devolver Digital. It originally released onto Xbox One in October of 2014 to a Metascore of 74. Shadow Warrior will be available February 1st through February 28th.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles – India is the second Xbox One title coming the month of February. This entry in the Assassin’s Creed series features 2.5D platforming and combat.

There were three 2.5D Chronicles titles in the Assassin’s Creed series. All were met with mixed reviews. India eventually settled upon a Metascore of 64 on Xbox One. Assassin’s Creed – India will be available as of February 16th.

The first Xbox 360 title coming this month is Split/Second. It’s free to download for Gold members from February 1st through February 15th. Developed by Black Rock Studio, Split/Second is an arcade racer where the environment is constantly a hazard. The game was met with a positive response upon release on the 360. It earned itself a Metacritic score of 82.

Finally, the latter half of February will bring us Crazy Taxi on Xbox 360 via Games with Gold. You know what you’re getting here. The arcade phenom is essentially a mad dash for cash. Race against time to deliver your riders and earn their fares, all while rocking out to (most of) the game’s iconic soundtrack.

As always, don’t forget, all Xbox 360 titles on Games with Gold are backwards compatible and downloadable on Xbox One as well.
