It's the middle of the month, which means Xbox Games With Gold has two new free games for Xbox One players to download, or more specifically Xbox One gamers subscribed to Xbox Gold. For the middle of January, Microsoft is giving away both a Batman game and a Star Wars game. The former comes in the package of Batman: The Telltale Series - The Complete Season, while the latter is LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. Both are available on Xbox One, however, it's worth noting the second of these two games is a Xbox 360 title, playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility.
Batman: The Telltale Series - The Complete Season will be available for free until February 15, however, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy will only be free for Gold members until January 31. Meanwhile, Styx: Shards of Darkness is also still free and will remain this way until January 31 as well.
