Last month’s Games with Gold lineup wasn’t all that great unless you really enjoy playing rally games. Microsoft seems to have stepped up their game, at least a little, with the Games with Gold February 2019 lineup. The free games lineup that Xbox Live Gold subscribers can look forward to next month isn’t anything spectacular, but many gamers probably don’t own these titles already, which is a good thing.
The headliners in the lineup, in my opinion, are Assassin’s Creed Rogue and Super Bomberman R, and the latter can be quite addictive. Then, we also have Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and lastly, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. There’s definitely a little something for everyone in the Games with Gold February lineup and thanks to Backwards Compatibility, Xbox One owners can play every last one of these titles.
So when can you start downloading these titles? Well, check out the details below and don’t forget to grab the January titles if you haven’t already.
Games with Gold February Lineup
- Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon – 1 February to 28 February (Xbox One)
- Super Bomberman R – 16 February to 15 March (Xbox One)
- Assassin’s Creed: Rogue – 1 February to 15 February (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)

“Forge your weapon and follow the path of the Jedi Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is the latest instalment of the highly acclaimed Jedi Knight series. Take on the role of a new student eager to learn the ways of the Force from Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.”
Assassin’s Creed Rogue
“Introducing Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the darkest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed franchise yet. As Shay, you will experience the slow transformation from Assassin to Assassin Hunter.
