Gamers who use Microsoft’s Games with Gold program will get four free titles for their next batch of games. Users with a Xbox Gold account are rewarded with a few free titles every month if you are not familiar with the service. Such titles range from huge AAAs, to lesser known, highlighted games that extend back, as they did this month, to classics on the original Xbox.
Call of Cthulhu, Fable Heroes, Star Wars: Battle Front and TT: Isle of Man are the four free games this time round. We are talking, to be clear, about the first frontline since 2004, not the fiery waste pile which EA provided a few years ago.

360 and backward compatibility on Xbox One
With Games with Gold, Xbox Live Gold subscription holders receive 48 additional games a year, two monthly for Xbox One and Xbox 360. With the introduction of the backward compatibility service, titles available in the Xbox 360 console work simultaneously on Xbox One – including doubling the offer for its owners. Running Xbox 360 games from discs or digital versions on Xbox One is free and does not require re-purchase of games. On Xbox One, you can also purchase games for Xbox 360 in backward compatibility directly from the console. One Gold subscription can be used simultaneously on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, as part of the same account, as well as sharing a Gold account with other Xbox One users thanks to the My Home Console feature
PS Plus: February 2020 – full offer
BioShock: The Collection, The Sims 4 and others. Sony has revealed games that will be available to all interested subscribers of the PS Plus service from February 4 at no additional charge. BioShock: The Collection, which is a set of refreshed versions of three parts of the cycle, will hit on PS4, among others. Each is set in a fictional, utopian city – the first two in underwater Rapture, and the last in sky Colombia.
PlayStation 4 owners with an active subscription will also receive The Sims 4, a famous production in which we look after virtual people. During the game, we not only meet the needs of those under our care, but also build and furnish their apartments. Interestingly, in February there will be another third game – Firewall Zero Hour. A virtual reality shooter (requires PSVR goggles) focused on network struggles. Players take on the role of mercenaries, competing with other users for valuable data.
On February 4, the PS Plus offer will include:
- BioShock: The Collection (PS4)
- The Sims 4 (PS4)
- Firewall Zero Hour (PS4, PSVR)
At the same time they will disappear:
- Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection (PS4)
- Goat Simulator (PS4)
The cost of the PlayStation Plus subscription is PLN 240 for 12 months, PLN 100 for 3 months and PLN 37 per month. An active PS Plus subscription not only authorizes you to download more ‘free’ games every month, but also allows you to use multiplayer modes on Sony consoles, guarantees numerous discounts in the PlayStation Store and provides access to special content such as themes, applications and even packages starting games in free games.
