It’s time to say goodbye to 2018 and welcome in the New Year. But it’s not just all about having a party and watching some fireworks, oh no, the turn of the year also sees the arrival of new free games for Xbox One and Xbox 360 players to get involved with. And it is the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for January 2019 that is delivering the goods as Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light gets stripped of the usual price tag.
Available to download right now for free, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is the latest title to be seen shedding its price via the Xbox Games With Gold scheme. One of four titles to be heading towards Xbox One and Xbox 360 gamers for nothing this January, Lara Croft: GoL as it is commonly referred as, can be yours for nothing – provided you have a valid Xbox Live Gold membership attached to your account.
Any free game is a good game in our books, but when it comes with the iconic Lara Croft attached, the excitement levels raise some more. Yes, this may not be one of the big standout titles that have pushed the Tomb Raider franchise to become one of the greatest of all time, but it’s still well worth a look… especially for free.
An isometric view point allows you the opportunity to get up close and personal with young Lara, as you head on out into a journey into the unknown, fighting your way past numerous foes, solving the most taxing of puzzles and collecting tons of relics and artifacts in the process.
You won’t have to go about this alone though and as the first ever cooperative action title to feature Ms Croft, the Guardian of Light can be experienced with a friend fighting alongside. With the freeness that the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for January allows, this should be the perfect opportunity for new and old Xbox gamers alike to get together and take in the world of Lara Croft together, as one.
If you wish to get access to the free download of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light then you’ll just need to flash your Xbox Live Gold subscription at the doors of the Xbox Store, before hitting the big download button and kicking things into action. You’ve got until the midway point of January to sort things out, after which the price will be going straight back up to the usual £11.99. Yes, you may well have been one of the many who had free access to the same game way back in 2014, but now, with the Xbox Backwards Compatibility options that are available, Xbox One owners can get in on the free Lara action too.
What are you waiting for? Get your download in now and have a great 2019!
