Three of the four free games in February’s Games with Gold lineup are available now. Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members can nab Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse, Aerial Knight’s Never Yield, and Hydrophobia. Technically, Aerial Knight’s Never Yield wasn’t supposed to be free until tomorrow, but you can claim it early by logging into your Xbox account through a browser. Bang of Bugs will join the giveaways tomorrow, and it’s the last day to claim Hydrophobia.
Broken Sword 5 is a point and click adventure game that was originally released as an episodic game from 2013. It revolves around a stolen painting and a grand conspiracy created by the devil. If you like classic adventure games, Broken Sword 5 is worth checking out. It scored an 8/10 in our Broken Sword 5 review.
The aerial knight never gives in is a 3D auto runner launched last year. Set in a futuristic version of Detroit, Aerial Knight’s Never Yield stars Wally, a young man searching for answers to the city’s problems. If you’re a fan of fast side-scrolls, this might be worth checking out. Plus, you can beat the game in a single sitting, as each race only lasts about 1.5 hours. Aerial Knight’s Never Yield can be claimed from February 16 to March 15.
Hydrophobia is an action-adventure game set in a floating city that will be free for the first half of the month. During this time, insect band is a turn-based tactics game featuring, you guessed it, bugs.
