As of tomorrow, February 1, Xbox LIVE Gold members will be able to download Dead Island for free. Techland's zombie adventure game will be the Games for Gold special up until February 15, giving you and your buddies plenty of time to grab it.
After Dead Island moves on, Signal Studios' quirky tower-defense game Toy Soldiers: Cold War will take over. Two very different yet fun co-op games worth checking out this month, if you haven't already. Hey, they're free with your Gold subscription, so what have you got to lose?
Dead Island, for those who missed that particular bandwagon, won gaming fame with an incredible debut trailer in 2011. The game itself received mixed reception upon release, namely due to a plethora of bugs and not actually reflecting the same emotional impact as its trailers. Regardless, it proved to be a fun zombie action game, one that you can play with up to three other people.
Dead Island is normally priced at $19.99, while Toy Soldiers: Cold War is $14.99 USD.
