What better way to ring in the new year than with a fresh collection of free games for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. On Tuesday, Microsoft unveiled the latest four games that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download for free through Games with Gold in January, and it’s not a bad list.

The two free Xbox One titles in January will be tower defense action-RPG hybrid World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap and popular fighting game Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition. On Xbox 360, Gold members will be treated to Double Fine adventure game The Cave and near-perfect platformer Rayman Origins.

Here are the details on the availability of January’s Games with Gold:

  • World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap ($19.99 ERP): January 1-31 on Xbox One
  • Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition ($39.99 ERP): January 16-February 15 on Xbox One
  • The Cave ($14.99 ERP): January 1-15 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One
  • Rayman Origins ($14.99 ERP): January 16-31 on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

Although next month’s selection doesn’t quite compare to December’s (which was one of the best we’ve ever seen), it’s a solid assortment of interesting indies that should tide gamers over during a quiet month. Of course, you can still get three of the four games from December’s Games with Gold if you act fast.
