Microsoft has confirmed the January 2016 Games with Gold for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

And this month is no different. Major Nelson just revealed the four games available for free via Games with Gold from January 1 – 30 2016.

For the Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members can download Killer Instinct: Season 1 Ultra Edition for free throughout January.
