Xbox Games With Gold for February Includes Gears 5 and Resident Evil

Microsoft has revealed the latest Games With Gold titles that are coming in February, with Gears 5 and Resident Evil headlining the roster.

While we’re only a month into 2021, Xbox owners have had some good games to start the year with across Microsoft’s various services. Xbox Game Pass has delivered plenty of big titles alongside Games With Gold, and now Microsoft has given a look at what’s ahead for the free games that users can pick up in February via Games With Gold.

In an update on Xbox Wire, Microsoft officially revealed the lineup of Games With Gold titles for February 2021, with five games being offered for Xbox Live Gold subscribers next month. Specifically, the lineup is headline by Gears 5Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition, and Resident Evil, alongside two backward compatible classics, Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb and Lost Planet 2. Altogether, Microsoft noted that next month’s offerings total nearly $105 in value and have a combined Gamerscore of 4150.

Overall this marks a pretty strong month for Games With Gold, as Gears 5 will likely be a big draw for a lot of players that haven’t jumped into the latest chapter of the Gears franchise. Also, Resident Evil‘s inclusion is timely with the recent reveals for Resident Evil: Village, and Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb is likely to give players a good old-fashioned adventure after it was announced that Bethesda and MachineGames will be making an Indiana Jones game.

Alongside the Games With Gold announcement for next month, Microsoft also detailed today that Xbox Live Gold will see a price increase across all of its membership options. As noted on Xbox Wire, one-month memberships will go up by $1 to $10.99/month, three-month memberships will increase by $5 to $29.99/month, and six-month memberships will now cost $59.99.
