February is almost over, and Microsoft has announced the next month’s titles for Games with Gold.

All month long, Xbox One owners who are members of Xbox Live Gold will be able to pick up Rayman Legends for free. This colorful platformer is one of the best rated Xbox One games, praised for its gameplay, local co-op mode, level design, and more.

Remember, unlike with the Xbox 360 version of the program, you’ll only be able to play this game for as long as you maintain your Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Games with Gold will be even better once March ends. In April, two Xbox One games will be included instead of just one. It sounds as though this increase in free games may be special for April, but we can always hope it’s a lasting change.

Join us in the comments below with your thoughts on Games with Gold and if you’re planning to download Rayman Legends.

Amazon’s deals for Cyber Monday will include at least some Xbox One and Playstation 4 items in addition to dozens of current-generation (Xbox 360 and PS3) games, accessories and console offerings.

Make sure you check out Amazon’s Cyber Monday video game deal hub here and take a look at what’s currently on offer. Note that the page is expected to be updated as information on more details is released. Currently you can also take a look at what deals are currently known and when you can expect them to go live.

The only next-gen (Xbox One and PS4) deals currently available all relate to Skylanders, but hopefully that will be expanded upon shortly. Otherwise if you still game on your current gen system or PC, there is dozens of good games going cheap.
