Leaky holes and fire escapes
[Update: Find the US confirmation video below.]
Something felt ever-so-slightly off this morning when Twitter-folk started passing around next month’s Games with Gold on Xbox. February’s a short month, but not that short — especially this year. It seems a bit ahead of schedule to tell us what the new free titles are.
Oh, hey! That’s because it is a little early! A leak out of Xbox Spain outs the new Games for Gold. Bless international leaks; they’re, like, half of this job.
So, according to Xbox Spain’s video that will surely be removed soon, the free games on Xbox One for Gold subscribers are Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment and Lords of the Fallen. It’s likely that Sherlock will be available from the beginning until the end of March, and Lords of the Fallen will be gratis from mid-March until mid-April.
On the last-gen side of things (although they’re all playable through Xbox One backward compatibility), the original Borderlands is up for grabs first. Rounding out the month will be Supreme Commander 2. If tradition holds, each of these will be available for two weeks. But, we’ll get the official word on that from Microsoft in a few days.
