Microsoft today announced the free games for the month of January for Xbox Live Gold Members. It includes the critically acclaimed indie adventure game D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die (or D4 for short) for Xbox One, MX vs. ATV Alive, and the epic role-playing game The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360.
- D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die ($14.99 ERP): Available from January 1-31 on Xbox One – D4 is the brainchild of legendary Japanese designer Swery (real name: Hidetaka Suehiro), the mind behind the fantastic Deadly Premonition. You play David Young, a detective whose wife has been murdered. David suffers from a strange syndrome as a result of the murder: He can’t remember the past, but he can travel through time. He uses this ability to go back and find out the truth behind his wife’s death so he can try to prevent it. But, along the way, his bizarre powers get augmented (and sometimes impeded) by an equally bizarre cast of characters. The puzzles will leave you scratching your head (in a good way) for a while, but the story and unique cel-shaded graphics will keep you glued to the screen.
- MX vs. ATV Alive ($19.99 ERP): Available from January 1-15 on Xbox 360
- The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings ($29.99 ERP): Available from January 16-31 on Xbox 360
