Microsoft’s Games with Gold for January 2019 have been announced.

On January 1st, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to pick up two fantastic games: Celeste and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Celeste is one of 2018’s best platformers and one that’s been critically acclaimed since its release.

“Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain, in this super-tight, hand-crafted platformer from the creators of multiplayer classic TowerFall.”

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has been a Game with Gold in the past, but still offers a fun co-op experience for Xbox gamers.

After January 15th, the next two games will become available: WRC 6 and Ubisoft’s Far Cry 2.

WRC 6 is a bit outdated now but is still a fun racer and adds some nice variety to this month’s lineup.

“On a race track, the car makes all the difference. In a rally, it’s the driver. WRC 6 puts you to the test: fog, mud, punctures, night racing… WRC 6 also includes all of the official 2016 content,”

Finally, Far Cry 2 is a fantastic survival shooter. If you haven’t played this entry in the series, you really should. Just try not to get malaria.
