January Games With Gold Includes Sleeping Dogs And Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light

Microsoft has revealed the upcoming Games with Gold titles for January.  Next month will feature the most recent game to ever be released for Games with Gold and a fantastic downloadable title.  These games are Sleeping Dogs and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Sleeping Dogs is up first and will be available to download for free January 1-15, 2014.  Sleeping Dogs is an open-world action-adventure title set in Hong Kong.  As an undercover cop you’re tasked with infiltrating a faction of the Triads and bring them down from the inside.  The game, released in 2012, was quite excellent thanks to its story, slick hand-to-hand combat and fast-paced racing.  This is the youngest game to ever be given away in this program.

Finishing off the month is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light that will be available to download January 16-31, 2014.  This XBLA title sees Lara Croft teaming up with an 2000 year old Mayan warrior to defeat an evil force and recover a mystifying object.  This Co-Op downloadable title received strong praise since its release.

January 2014 Game with Gold kicks off tomorrow as we ring in the new year.
