Games with Gold Predictions For February 2019
Those who subscribe to online functionality on their Xbox One or Xbox 360 consoles are also gifted a few free games each month through Games with Gold. Usually a few larger titles headline the list, and for our first speculation we wouldn’t be surprised to see Rise of the Tomb Raider make it to players next month in February 2019.
Tomb Raider games have made it to Games with Gold in the past, including Tomb Raider (2013) in March 2015, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition in September 2015, and Tomb Raider Underworld in January 2018.
The title also came to both Xbox One and Xbox 360, so Microsoft has the freedom to choose either platform making it a more obvious pick for Games with Gold no matter what other titles are offered that month. If we had to guess though, it’s more likely it would be offered on Xbox One due to its popularity specifically on the next-gen platform.
Another likely inclusion is Sniper Elite 3 for the Xbox 360, or perhaps the Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition bundle for Xbox One that also comes with the nine DLC packs as well.
Sniper Elite V2 was offered on Games with Gold in February 2015, and tons of other games from this series’ developer 505 Games have been as well including Terraria in April 2015, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons in February 2015, and more.
It seems like a no-brainer that Sniper Elite 3 will be released if not next month then sometime in the near future, just because its gameplay is on par with other past Games with Gold choices and 505 Games has a relationship with Microsoft offering its titles for free in the past as well.
