Microsoft has revealed the list of Xbox Games with Gold for the month of February, dishing out four free games at a time of year when we’re all scrounging around under our car seats for coins to pay for petrol. Right now free games are all most of us can afford, amirite?

Flying Wild Hog’s Shadow Warrior reboot is up first for Xbox One and will be available until the end of the month. As far as action reboots go, Shadow Warrior handles the source material quite well, bringing bloodshed, swordplay and a couple of laughs along with it. For the second Xbox One title, side-scrolling platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India joins the party from 15 February. While it’s a marked departure from the core franchise, I quite enjoyed AC Chronicles: China and look forward to giving this one a go.

Xbox 360 gamers get a double serving of driving action for February, starting with the frantic arcade racer Split/Second which will be available until the 15th, followed by Crazy Taxi until the end of the month. I probably don’t need to remind you, but just in case you’re new at this, keep in mind that you need to be a fully paid up Xbox Live Gold subscriber to get hold of these free games.
