Two more Xbox 360 games have been added to the Games with Gold list, with February offering us of ‘Dead Island’ and ‘Toy Soldiers’: Cold War’. Dead Island will available for free for Xbox LIVE Gold subscribed users between February 1-16th, whereas Toy Soldiers: Cold War will be available from February 16-28th.
Dead Island – 1st – 16th February 2014
Dead Island takes you to the fictional island of ‘Banoi’, where you play as one of four survivors in a first-person perspective, following a zombie outbreak. The open-world environment is beautiful, but deadly – survivors have to make use of melee weapons, or random everyday objects that they can find whilst roaming to use as a weapon, as conventional weaponry is scarce.
The game employs a quest-based task system with experience points and character customisation, so progressing further into the game will progress the skills of your character too. Dead Island has been known to suffer from glitches, such as corrupted game saves and graphical issues… But it is free and a full release game! One of our favourite things about Dead Island prior to launch was its trailer – if you haven’t already seen it, it’s fantastic!
Toy Soldiers: Cold War – 16th – 28th February 2014
The sequel to Toy Soldiers, Toy Soldiers: Cold War takes us to a diorama of an 80’s battlefield. Play as either the US or the Soviets in this fun little action/strategy RTS. With a wholesome campaign, co-op, competitive survival modes and even mini-games, it offers plenty of gameplay – especially for an arcade game.
