Xbox Games with Gold continues with new games and January's lineup brings The Coalition's Gears 5, the original Resident Evil, lovely metroidvania Dandara: Trials of Fear and two more.
January promises to be another great month in terms of bang per buck, and right off the bat, the headliner Gears 5 sets the tone.
The Coalition's revival of Gears of War even had Cliffy B complimenting them on the work done, which should be enough proof that Gears 5 is worth it. Packed with a ton of content by now, you have hours of fun and challenging gameplay ahead of you.
Next up is Resident Evil, the remastered original, a game that has to be played if only for its historical importance to the genre.
"It’s the game that defined the genre. In this remastered version, join the special forces team, S.T.A.R.S., and investigate a mysterious mansion on the outskirts of Raccoon City. Stay alert because supplies are scarce, and the living dead are all around", Microsoft wrote.
Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition is yet another lovely addition, where players get to discover the bizarre but beautiful world of Salt, and its heroine, Dandara, who aims to bring "freedom and balance to this directionless world".
Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb is the next GWG game, and it's a classic Indy plot - you need to fend off both the Nazis and the Asian underworld while tracking down the mysterious artifact Heart of the Dragon.
Last but not least is Lost Planet 2, an excellent sequel to the original game that has players fighting big boss battles, traversing extreme terrain and piloting so-called Vital Suits across some beautiful landscapes.
