The Witcher 2 is free for limited time on Xbox One

Good news for those of you looking to play more Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One. A brand new round of games has been announced.

The star of this list is certainly The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. 

The Witcher 2 is free on Xbox One by way of backwards compatibility for a limited time. It will remain free starting January 21 at 6AM PT until February 5. Snap it up! 

If last year's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was your first taste of the fantasy RPG series, Microsoft has good news: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is not only available on the Xbox One starting today, but it's also free for a limited time. The news comes as Microsoft announced the latest batch of Xbox 360 games to become backwards compatible with the Xbox One, and the list also includes titles like 2D fighter Skullgirlsand trippy Xbox Live Arcade game Space Giraffe. The Witcher 2 is the only game in the batch that's free, though it's only available in select territories — the US, Canada, France, Germany, and the UK — and only until February 4th. You can grab it right here.

Here’s the full list.

Aegis Wing
Age of Booty
Counter-Strike: GO
Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad
Sam & Max Save the World
Small Arms
Space Giraffe
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

As solid as The Witcher is, the pile also offers a few duds. No one said the 360 boasted nothing but classics. Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad and Age of Booty are certainly nothing to write home about.

Finally, if you’ve never played Skullgirls and don’t own a PC, this might be a good way to crack into the well made fighting game. It’s never been my jam, but lovers of the genre hold this one in high regard.
