Microsoft have already announced the next batch of free Games with Gold titles of January 2016 for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Among the games included is DiRT Showdown for the Xbox 360 (available between January 15-31), which is also playable on the Xbox One through the backwards capability function.
DiRT Showdown is very much an arcade spin-off to the main DiRT series and focuses its attention on high-octane action set within a festival complete with booming music and pyrotechnics. I think it's fair to say it won't be everyone's cup of tea but those willing to go along for the ride will very much enjoy the game despite some shortcomings.
Completing the free Games with Gold line up for January are Killer Instinct, Zheros and Deus Ex Human Revolution, check out the dates of availability for all of January's Games with Gold titles below.
