February 2017 free Games With Gold games
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (Xbox One) - Available: January 1 - 28 A neon-tinted, co-op twist on your standard shoot-em-up, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime lets you and up to three friends work together, frantically changing positions within your spacecraft as you hum through the void and destroy the enemies nipping at your heels.
Project CARS (Xbox One) - Available: February 16 - March 15 One of the most highly-detailed, intricate racing sims on the market, Project CARS is for those who aren't satisfied with simply racing pretty coupes through pristine environments. No, this is for the gear-heads and tinkerers, letting you fine-tune every aspect of your ride before you take to the asphalt.
Monkey Island 2: Special Edition (Xbox 360) - Available: February 1 - 15 The classic point-and-click adventure game returns with refreshed art and a user interface built with console players in mind. If you don't already know why the tale of Guybrush Threepwood is an endearing part of gaming history, now's your chance to find out.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Xbox 360) - Available: February 16 - 28 Before Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm retconned the Star Wars universe, this was the tale of the Rebel Alliance's founding - and a pretty satisfying 3D action-adventure to boot. No game has come anywhere close to giving players such an overwhelming command of the Force, and blasting Stormtroopers across the room is as satisfying now as it was when this game first debuted.
