'Brothers,' '#IDARB' among February's Xbox Games with Gold
Microsoft has announced the games Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download for free in February, including a brand new title and one of 2013’s most emotionally stirring games.
Beginning Feb. 1, Xbox One players who have an Xbox Live Gold subscription can download #IDARB, which stands for It Draws a Red Box.
The game may initially appear as confusing as its title sounds—the game is a chaotic mix of action, platforming, fighting, and hockey games. The bizarre and frenzied game supports eight-player local multiplayer and allows players to create their own custom characters and music.
For those who miss the deal or are not Gold subscribers, the game will be available for $14.99.
Xbox 360 players will be able to pick up two titles during the month. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons will be up for download from Feb. 1 through Feb. 15. The game tasks players with controlling two brothers simultaneously to solve puzzles while on a mission to save their father. The beautiful game is well worth the download for those who have yet to pick it up and experience the relatively short but satisfying adventure.
Third-person action game Sniper Elite V2 will then be available for download for free from Feb. 16 through Feb. 28. Players control a sniper in World War II looking to bring down Germany’s V-2 rocket program.
Games with Gold is a monthly program that offers games for free to those with a Gold level subscription to Microsoft’s Xbox Live service. Each month, new games are made available to download at no additional cost.
