While the Xbox Game Pass will receive a major expansion next month, Microsoft’s Games with Gold program is still going strong for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, and with a new month comes four new games up for grabs. February’s catalog of free games for Gold members includes a reboot of a 1997 PC title, an Assassin’s Creed sidescroller, and a pair of backwards compatible racers.

For Xbox One owners, Devolver Digital’s reimagining of
Shadow Warrior is free all month long, and Ubisoft’s 2.5D platformer Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India will follow suit from February 16 to March 15. Last month’s offering of Zombi (once a timed Wii U exclusive known as ZombiU) is also still on the table, until February 15.

As for Xbox 360 offerings, Black Rock Studio’s
Split/Second is free up until the 15th, followed by SEGA and Hitmaker’s open-world Crazy Taxi until the end of the month. Both games are also Xbox One backwards compatible.
