Just ahead of the holidays, Microsoft revealed its Xbox One Games with Gold lineup for the next month. Starting January 1, 2020, new games will become available for download to all Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members.
The month will include Styx: Shards of Darkness and Batman: The Telltale Series for Xbox One, plus Tekken 6 and Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy for Xbox 360 (with Xbox One backward-compatibility).
Styx is a stealth-action game from 2017 that received a 6/10 from GameSpot for its uneven mix of fluid controls and spotty AI and mission structure. Batman was one of Telltale’s higher-profile licensed games and was well-received as a new take on the iconic character. Tekken and Lego Star Wars are classics from the last generation, and Lego Star Wars is being re-envisioned with a new “Skywalker Saga” game in 2020.
Until these new games rotate in you can still claim December’s Games with Gold: Insane Robots, Jurassic World Evolution, Toy Story 3, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD.
The Games with Gold are included with your Gold subscription, which enables Xbox Live online play. But you’re also a Live member if you have Game Pass Ultimate, which entitles you to Game Pass games on Xbox One and PC. That subscription is getting some heavy-hitters this week including Pillars of Eternity and The Witcher 3.
