Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will gain access to four free games throughout February. 

Xbox Games With Gold is an extra little perk Microsoft gives to their Xbox subscribers allowing them to play a selection of different games for free every month.

The games can be just about anything that’s been released on Xbox so far, and even some of the best games, like Batman: The Telltale Series and Lego Star Wars, have been included in previous months. So, if you’re an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, check out the free games you’ll soon be able to play.

Which games are on Xbox Games With Gold For February 2020?

February brings four free games to players. You can find which consoles they’re available on and what dates you can play them below.

  • TT Isle of Man: February 1 – 29 on Xbox One
  • Fable Heroes: February 1 – 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
  • Star Wars Battlefront: February 16 – 29 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
  • Call of Cthulhu: February 16 – March 15 on Xbox One

As always, Microsoft have also released a short video, giving fans a quick run-through of what they can expect from the games, as well as all the details.

One of the most interesting games on the list is Call of Cthulhu – which follows a story of the Cthulhu Mythos where a detective investigates a murder in a small town and quickly gets caught up in some bizarre events.

For those who prefer a bit more action, Star Wars Battlefront and Fable Heroes are two great options for some fast-paced gameplay, be it shooter, or beat ’em up. Meanwhile, TT Isle of Man will no doubt prove entertaining for anyone looking to get their hands on a racing game.

If you want to gain access to these games then all you have to do is become a Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber. This can easily be purchased in the Microsoft store, and costs £6.99 or £10.99 a month, respectively, with the Game Pass Ultimate subscription being discounted to just £1 for the first month.

Apex Legends

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved ahead by one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, but prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, the Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.
