We are closing in on another Xbox Games with Gold update. With the January game coming to a close with D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, we wanted to give you a quick reminder that the Xbox One Games with Gold February 2015 free game has already been revealed early.
This seems to be a growing trend with the game revealed ahead of schedule and we have to say we love the extra heads-up. Microsoft will not announce the full Games with Gold February 2015 lineup until the last week of January, but we can already tell you what the main game on Xbox One is.
Last month, you may have missed the fact that IDARB was announced by Other Ocean Interactive, as the free Xbox One game for Games with Gold in February 2015.
IDARB stands for It Draws a Red Box and is an 8-bit style, 2D platformer that combines hockey and basketball into one crazy couch co-op E-sports game.
There will be support for 8 players locally, but also support for online multiplayer as well – with players able to create their own sprite from scratch to use in the game.
It is wacky, but most importantly it looks like a ton of fun. Watch the video which we have added below for an idea of how the gameplay experience will be like.
We’re presuming that IDARB will be the only game that is offered on Xbox One for Games with Gold, since Microsoft has gone back to only offering a single game each month recently.
Let us know your immediate thoughts on IDARB and whether you are happy to have this as your free game. As a Gold subscriber, are you a bit disappointed that Microsoft are still not offering ‘AAA’ games like Sony are with PS Plus?
