Your Xbox Live Games With Gold lineup for February has been revealed, and it’s one of the best months we’ve seen in a very long time. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon will delight and challenge old-school Castlevania fans, Super Bomberman R is perfect for game night with friends, and Assassin’s Creed Rogue is hailed by many as the best game in the series. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy rounds out the lineup with some retro Xbox action, cleaned up nicely with Xbox One X enhancements!
Here’s a brief rundown of each game from the Xbox Wire:
Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon
“Jump into retro-style gaming with Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. With the involvement of the legendary Koji Igarashi, this action-adventure title harkens back to some of the classic side-scrolling games of the past. Switch your play among several different characters, each with their own unique abilities, as you travel perilous lands to defeat the evil demon lurking in the forbidden castle.”
Super Bomberman R
“Step into the fun, because Super Bomberman R is back and better than ever! Eight Bomberman heroes journey to space to fight the Evil Emperor Buggler, but now with the help of the Master Chief — exclusive to the Xbox One version — use your state-of-the-art combat armor to help win the day. Play alone or with a friend because this is the biggest Bomberman game ever.”
Assassin’s Creed Rogue
“Continue the adventures of your ancestors in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Set in the chaotic moments of the French and Indian War, relive the days of Shay Patrick Cormac, a fearless young outcast assassin who slowly morphs into a deadly assassin hunter due to tragedy. The dark transformation your character goes through will shape the future of the Brotherhood forever.”
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
“Learn the ways of the Force from Jedi Master Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. In this classic title from the original Xbox, begin your journey as a student eager to learn as you interact with famous Star Wars characters and locations. In the end, you’ll face the ultimate choice: the good and freedom of the light or the tantalizing power of the dark side.”
