The Xbox One games included with Games with Gold 2021 are NeuroVoider and Aground.
The former is available between January 1 and January 31, while the latter is downloadable between January 16 and February 15.
But without doubt, the choice among the latest free games from Games with Gold is in the backward compatible titles.
The Xbox 360 Space Invaders Infinity Gene title is available between January 16 and January 31, while between January 1 and January 15, Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live subscribers can get Radiant Silvergun.
This is a legendary vertical shooter created by Treasure – the masters of the genre who created classic titles like Gunstar Heroes, Sin and Punishment, Ikaruga, Guardian Heroes and the cult classic N64 Mischief Makers.
Radiant Silvergun was first released in arcades before being ported to the Sega Saturn for release only in Japan.
The Saturn version of Radiant Silvergun is one of the most treasured items for retro gamers, with a physical version of the game grossing hundreds of pounds from eBay.
Fortunately, for anyone who doesn’t want to shell out that much for an original copy, Radiant Silvergun was ported to the Xbox 360 in 2011.
It’s available to play on the X Series, S Series, and Xbox One thanks to Microsoft’s extended backward compatibility support.
If you want to play another classic Treasure game, you can also download the Xbox 360 version of Guardian Heroes from the Xbox Store now.
You will have to pay for this download, with this revamped version of the classic Saturn priced at Â£ 3.39.
But that’s a fraction of the cost of getting a copy of the original Saturn game, which will likely set you back around Â£ 100 on eBay.
