Resident Evil remake is truly a no-brainer. Capcom dropped a wealth of information about Resident Evil Village pretty recently, including a new demo, a release date, and plenty more. Going back to the reimagined original should be delightful for those who have never experienced it or just want to take the romp once again through a great game. Gears 5 is also a welcome addition because it’s still one of the best Xbox exclusive shooters around, especially in multiplayer. Those who haven’t yet picked it up will likely be happy to get it for free now. Heck, The Coalition is still kicking out some quality DLC for the game.

Of course, this also comes on the trails of Xbox hiking prices for the Game Pass. Nonetheless, are you planning on picking up any of February 2021’s Games With Gold? What do you hope to see next month? Let us know in the Chatty below and stay tuned for updates on all the latest Xbox Games With Gold announcements.
