A pair of new Xbox games are now free for a limited time, but not for everyone. The latest free games on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X are courtesy of Games With Gold, which means they’re limited to Xbox Live Gold users on this trio of consoles, including early variants, Xbox One S and Xbox One X. One of these games is an Xbox One game, playable on current generation Xbox consoles via backward compatibility. The other is an Xbox 360 game, playable on all of its predecessors, using the same technology.
The more notable of the two games is Tropic 5, a construction and management simulation that hit in 2014 via developer Haemimont Games and publisher Kalypso Media. The other free game, the Xbox 360 game, is Incredibly Twisted Shadow Planet, which arrived in 2011 via developer Shadow Planet Productions and publisher Xbox Game Studios. The first is free until January 15, while the second is free until December 31.
