After picking up a bit to start off 2018, the February Games with Gold include assassins, cars, and more. In case you missed them, there are still a few days to get the last two titles from last month. Without further ado, it’s that time of the month again where we get to find out what February Games with Gold Xbox has in store for Xbox Live Gold members.

Let’s check out what Xbox is offering Xbox Live Gold members in February!

London is falling. Are you prepared? The Last Blight is upon us. It was foretold. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded London in a fog of death. Big Ben tolls as thousands of unprepared die, or worse, are infected by a sickness more gruesome than death.
You’re still breathing, for now, but how long will you survive the labyrinth of London’s streets and underground canals, abandoned by the outside world and surrounded by infected? The horrifying remains of humanity, ravaged by the terrifying disease, are shuffling through the streets, waiting at every turn to prey on your living flesh.
