Games For Gold Gives Away Toy Soldiers To Play With & A Dead Island To Survive

Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson, has updated his blog to reveal the next two games that will be available for free for those who have an Xbox LIVE Gold account. So what games will be available following Sleeping Dogs and Lara Croft & The Guardian Of Light? If you haven’t already read the headline here’s the line up.

From tomorrow, February 1st, Dead Island will be available on the service until the 15th after which it will be replaced with Toy Soldiers: Cold War, though there seems to be some free companion available to download for free on Xbox SmartGlass. The description doesn’t actually say what is contained though.


So there you have it Gold members of LIVE, that’s your content for February.

  1. The games has been much better lately. Hopefully it continues like this.

  2. Much better. Haven’t heard of Toy Soldiers but I wouldn’t mind playing Dead Island.

  3. meh

    bioshock infinite and metro last light says hi

  4. I think my old Xbox 360 mite be dug out to try dead island. A statement I thought I’d never say there.

  5. Toy Soldiers is a great game – one of the best Live Arcade titles.

  6. On the one hand….Ha! XBox Live is still a worse value proposition than PS+ by a long stretch.

    On the other…I fully expect Microsoft to be at least as good as PS+ sometime soon.

    Still, why do I need Live to watch Netflix..?!

  7. and on plus this month we got Bioshock Infinite and Metro: Last Light.

    still, at least they seem to be improving.
