A few reason why Xbox is the Best Place to Play this Holiday
Games with Gold is rolling out four titles for you to add to your game library for January 2017; two new games for Xbox One and two classics for Xbox 360.
For Xbox One it’s the highly-anticipated ID@Xbox tower defence action-RPG hybrid, World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap followed by the spectacular fighting game, Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition. On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility) it’s a pair of critically-acclaimed adventures with The Cave and then Rayman Origins.
All games will be available for a limited time as part of the Games with Gold program, so make sure to have Xbox Live Gold to get in on the action!
World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap (£15.99 MSRP): Available from January 1st – 31st on Xbox One
Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra Edition (£31.99 MSRP): Available from January 16th – February 15th on Xbox One
The Cave (£9.99 MSRP): Available from January 1st – 15th on Xbox 360 & Xbox One

Starting on 1st January, defeat your enemies with deadly weapons, spells, and your own special skills in World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap. This tower defence and action-RPG hybrid comes with a versus mode, a cooperative campaign, and an extensive single-player campaign that tasks you with defending the world against the horrors of the void.
Releasing on 16th January, Killer Instinct Season 2 Ultra will feature new combatants, more stages and Killer Instinct 2 Classic, the port of the iconic arcade fighting game. This legendary fighting franchise is a must-own for fighting game fans, with unique characters, fluid gameplay, and an open-ended combo system. Battle friends and challenging AI at home, or unleash your skills online against players around the world and in monthly ranked leagues.
On Xbox 360 (and Xbox One via backward compatibility), The Cave is back and free to Gold members on 1st January. Assemble a team from an unlikely set of adventurers and plunge into The Cave, an adventure platformer by Double Fine and Ron Gilbert. Descend by yourself or bring your friends along on your hilarious quest with local co-op.
And the platforming legend returns with Rayman Origins on 16th January. With over 60 levels ranging from high-definition platforming to musical ensembles to boss fights, Rayman will have his work cut out for him in rescuing the Teensies and saving the Glade. Luckily, he’s not alone, with a wide cast of playable characters from throughout the series.
