Xbox Games With Gold January 2022 List
Here are the four new Games With Gold titles available next month:
January 1-15 2022
- Radiant Silvergun
January 1-31 2022
January 16-31 2022
- Space Invaders Infinity Gene
January 16 – February 15 2021
With four new games up for grabs, there’s no doubt something to appeal to all Xbox owners. Indie games are totally in the spotlight here, a far cry from previous months where triple-A titles took the headlines. In terms of newer games, NeuroVoider and Aground are ones to keep your eye on.
NeuroVoider is a twin-stick shooter perfect for co-op, brimming with arcade graphical style. The cyberpunk world is the perfect backdrop for you and up to three co-op partners to blast robots and immerse yourself in the RPG style. It’s also got a permadeath system if you choose to enable it, making it an arcade shooter with a bit more bite.
Also available is Aground, a 2D mining sim in the vein of Terraria or Minecraft. You’ll dig up dirt, tend to crops, and even battle a range of fantasy monsters in the meantime. Play well enough and you can even build a spacecraft to take off to new planets, so it’s a game ripe for exploration.
On top of that are two Xbox 360 titles available via backwards compatibility. First is Raidant Silvergun, a space combat shooter that started life in arcades before coming a console mainstay. It’s no doubt inspired by the other game, Space Invaders Infinity Gene. A more futuristic take on the series, look out for colorful backdrops, speedy gameplay, and even some 2.5D elements.
