Xbox Live Gold members with the Xbox One can get the games “Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition” and “Zheros.” “Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition” will be available from Jan. 1 to Jan. 31. On the other hand, “Zheros” will be available from Jan. 16 to Feb. 15, Major Nelson reports.

For the Xbox 360 console, the games available are “DiRT Showdown,” starting last Jan. 1 to Jan. 15, and “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” which would be available from Jan. 16 to Jan. 31.

For players who have Xbox One backwards compatible, all of the four games mentioned are available for download. Players who are able to get the games for free within the stated periods will still be available for them afterwards, as long as they were able to download it for free during its specified free period, TekRevue explained.

The roster of free downloadable games is interesting. “Deus Ex,” for example, has been a popular franchise series. “Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition” is also game series’ best edition because it has all eight playable characters. Just like the popular “Street Fighter” and “Mortal Kombat” series, gameplay is done by players using combos against opponents, as posted on Xbox Wire.

“Zheros” would be popular for those who love sidescrollers since it is a sidescrolling game. With “DiRT Showdown,” players can choose from a variety of rally cars for racing, demolition, and anything else in-between.

Each month, Xbox Live comes out a list of free games for its Gold members, though schedule of release may vary.
