Xbox Free Games with Gold for January 2017

On the Xbox 360 front, gamers have a lot to look forward to. From January 1st to the 15th, Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners can download The Cave for free. The Cave is a puzzle-plaforming adventure title by Double Fine Productions. The game is set in a magical cave, where seven characters from across time and space have come together to learn about themselves and their destinies. The Cave is mostly single-player, but can be played cooperatively by up to three players on a single console.
January’s other free Xbox 360 title is Rayman: Origins, the highly-rated platformer from Ubisoft. Rayman: Origins features wacky characters on a mission to restore happy dreams to the Bubble Dreamer by defeating monsters in the Land of the Livid Dead. Players can tackle the title solo or with up to three friends that can hop in and drop out at any time.
Thanks to Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature, each Games with Gold Xbox 360 title will be available to download and play on Xbox One when the game becomes free, if it isn’t available on backward compatibility before then. Plus, as a quick reminder, a few of December’s Xbox Games with Gold titles are still available for download, including Sleeping Dogs: Definitive EditionOutlast, and Xbox 360’s Burnout Paradise.
