February’s Xbox Games with Gold features Hand of Fate, Gears of War 2

February brings a fresh batch of free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Some may criticise this month’s offerings as being a bit anaemic but there’s at least one title that’s definitely worth your time.

Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners have titles to choose from as always, though its always worth remembering that the Xbox 360 titles listed will also work on the Xbox One so make sure you grab everything if you’re on a current-gen console.

This month’s Xbox One only offerings include Styx: Master of the Shadows starting from February 16 and Hand of Fate, the excellent card game by Brisbane dev Defiant Development, which will be available all month long. We reviewed Hand of Fate on The AU Review last year and had a really great time with it.

Xbox 360 owners are getting Sacred Citadel, available up until February 15, and Gears of War 2 which will arrive February 16.

You will need a current Xbox Live Gold subscription to take advantage of the Games with Gold offer. For more, you can check out Major Nelson’s post about it over at the official Xbox blog.
