Xbox Live Games with Gold January 2020 freebies announced

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson has announced January 2020’s Games with Gold freebies.

For Xbox One, Styx: Shards of Darkness will be available to download for the entire month and Batman: The Telltale Series will be available 16th January to 15th February. For Xbox 360, Tekken 6 will be available from 1-15 January and LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy will be available from 16-31 January.

Styx: Shards of Darkness is a stealth adventure game where the titular Styx, a goblin thief, must infiltrate the Dark Elven city of Körangar to uncover why the dark elves have formed an alliance with the dwarves. Like its predecessor, Styx: Master of Shadows, the game will give players the option of engaging enemies or avoiding them completely. You can also lay traps for enemies, temporarily become invisible and clone Styx to scout the area ahead of him.

Batman: The Telltale Series is Telltale’s take on the Caped Crusader himself. The game is set early in Batman’s career and Gotham hasn’t quite warmed up to the master detective. Players will meet many iconic Batman villains including Penguin, Joker and Catwoman. Throughout the story players will have the opportunity to play as both Batman and Bruce Wayne, with their choices affecting how other characters and the City of Gotham regard Batman.

Tekken 6 is a side-facing fighter that was released back in 2007 and at the time featured bigger stages than its predecessors. The stages also featured more interactivity, particularly letting players break walls and floors to reveal a new fighting arena.

LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is a sequel to the original LEGO Star Wars. As its name suggests, the game focuses on the original Star Wars films in what has become an iconic LEGO-platformer series.
