Xbox Games with Gold announced for January 2022

Here are the Xbox Games with Gold freebies subscribers can play next month at no additional charge

Microsoft has announced its next batch of Xbox Games with Gold.

The January 2022 lineup will be available at the beginning of the month but there’s still time to grab three of the four December 2021 games.

As a reminder, those included Orcs Must Die! (no longer available), The Escapists 2, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and Tropico 5 – Penultimate Edition. Tropico 5 is available through Jan. 15, 2022 while The Escapists 2 and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet can be added to your collection until the end of the day on New Year’s Eve.

For January, the games being offered include NeuroVoider, Aground, Radiant Silvergun and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Here are the descriptions of each, as written on the Xbox Wire.


Set in a cybernetic world and featuring an original soundtrack from cyberpunk artist, Dan Terminus, battle through hordes of vigilante robots using endless combinations of nuclear-powered weapons. Play co-op with up to four of your friends or rampage alone in this hack ’n’ slash twin-stick shooter RPG.


For humanity to survive and reach the stars, you’ll need to craft and build. Whether unlocking new technology, raising dragons, or launching into space, the sky is literally not the limit. Recover what was lost and rebuild everything!

Radiant Silvergun

Restored by Treasure, the legendary vertical-shooter returns with the same shoot ‘em up gameplay which made the original arcade version so famous. New additions, such as the “Ikaruga-style” shooting mode help elevate the fun in this fantastic shooter.

Space Invaders Infinity Gene

The game that defined video games for generations is back with a new twist. Play a total of 143 stages which evolve in both look and feel the more you play. Unlock new stages, new power ups, and new features, all to imaginatively stunning visuals.
