Xbox’s January gold game has a futuristic title

New year, new Golden lineup of games, And the title of this upcoming month seems to have a theme. We are looking forward and backward into a series of games from ultra-futuristic to retro-futuristic. In January, Xbox users with an Xbox Live Gold membership or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription will be able to get the following games for free:

  • NeuroVoider: Available from January 1st to 31st
  • Stranded: Available from January 16 to February 15
  • Radiant Silvergun: Available from January 1 to 15
  • Space Invaders Infinity Gene: Available from January 16 to 31

As usual, these games are only available for a limited time, so make sure to grab anything that interests you before it leaves the service. The first on the list is NeuroVoider, which is a two-player shooting RPG that will set off waves of robot baddies behind you. You must knock down each of them to end the endless war that is tearing apart the future world of the network. Radiant Silvergun appeared in the same window as NeuroVoider in the first half of this month. The vertical scrolling shooter was first released in 1998, but it has already shined for modern players.

In the second half of the month, players will be able to receive Aground and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. The second game is a brand new revision of the famous Space Invaders franchise and will only be launched before the end of January, so please buy it as soon as possible. However, Aground is a game focused on building and making scenes among the stars, and it will last until mid-February.

Although the end of the year is almost here, we still have a little time in December. Therefore, if you have not selected the Games with Gold of last month, you can choose these now. Free games this month include The Escapists 2, Tropico 5: Penultimate Edition, Orcs Must Die and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. There are some good games out there, so if you have Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, don’t miss it.
