Xbox 360 free games for February: Dead Island and Toy Soldiers

February Xbox 360 free games for Gold members

Another month, another two free Xbox 360 games Xbox LIVE Gold members are getting as part of the Microsoft promotions to keep the game console alive. For the month of February, Gold members are getting Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Call War.

From Saturday, February 1st, and until the 15th all Xbox Live Gold members can download Dead Island. This game is normally $19.99, but Gold subscribers can download free. And from February 16th and until the end of the month, Microsoft is making available for download Toy Soldiers: Cold War. This game is normally $14.99 from the Xbox Marketplace, but members can get it for free.

Just as a reminder, months ago Microsoft started offering 2 free Xbox 360 games each month, but it was going to last only until the release of Xbox One. Due to success, Microsoft decided to make the offer permanent, and some time in 2014 the company is also planning to offer 2 free games but for Xbox One – So stay tune for that!

Remember that these titles will be available for a limited time. You can do your free purchase via the Xbox 360 dashboard or via Xbox.com. Also, as Microsoft has already moved away from Points into local currency, if you don’t have a payment option (online), you’ll be forced to add a credit card information even though the games are free.
