Xbox Games With Gold For January 2022 Revealed (VIDEO)
Xbox bet big on its online ecosystem throughout 2021 and considering the company’s massive successes, 2022 looks to be ponying up even further in that regard. As Game Pass extends the platform across new avenues, Xbox Live membership aims to keep the community connected, not only with online functionality, but a monthly rotation of free games for subscribers to gobble up. For the coming month of January, the Games with Gold program is now bringing several favorites to players to ring in the new year.
In total, four games are set to grace players’ libraries for a limited time in January, with the duo of cyberpunk hack-and-slash NeuroVoider and classic top-down shooter Radiant Silvergun dropping to players on the 1st of the month. Following up on that, January 16th will see the likes of pixelated survival RPG Aground and trippy arcade reimagining Space Invaders Infinity Gene made available to Gold subscribers for the remainder of the month. A breakdown of each new Xbox Games With Gold title can be seen below.
Xbox Games With Gold for January 2022
- NeuroVoider – Available January 1st to January 31st
- Set in a cybernetic world and featuring an original soundtrack from cyberpunk artist, Dan Terminus, battle through hordes of vigilante robots using endless combinations of nuclear-powered weapons. Play co-op with up to four of your friends or rampage alone in this hack ’n’ slash twin-stick shooter RPG.
- Aground – Available January 16 to February 16th
- For humanity to survive and reach the stars, you’ll need to craft and build. Whether unlocking new technology, raising dragons, or launching into space, the sky is literally not the limit. Recover what was lost and rebuild everything!
- Radiant Silvergun – Available January 1st to January 15th
- Restored by Treasure, the legendary vertical-shooter returns with the same shoot ‘em up gameplay which made the original arcade version so famous. New additions, such as the “Ikaruga-style” shooting mode help elevate the fun in this fantastic shooter.
- Space Invaders Infinity Gene – Available January 16th to January 31st
- The game that defined video games for generations is back with a new twist. Play a total of 143 stages which evolve in both look and feel the more you play. Unlock new stages, new power ups, and new features, all to imaginatively stunning visuals.
These freshly-baked freebies are currently slated to join the Xbox Games with Gold program at the start of January (and the new year!), but Gold members may still have a sliver of December’s lineup to snag before time is officially up. Pixelated prison break The Escapists 2 and shadowy puzzle-shooter Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet are still available until the end of the month, while all-in-one empire builder Tropico 5: Penultimate Edition marches on through to January 15th.
