Each month, Xbox One gamers can download and play a selection of free games, as long as they subscribe to Xbox Live Gold.

Xbox Live Gold gives Xbox One X, Xbox One S or even original Xbox One owners access to online play, discounts on many digital games on the Xbox Store and the Xbox Games with Gold selection.

Membership in the UK usually costs £14.99 for three-months, £29.99 for six and £39.99 for a whole year's membership when paid up front.

Alternatively, you can choose to pay monthly for £5.99 a month.

The free games for February 2019 have been announced and are the following:

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

  • Available 1 to 28 February 2019

This is a Castlevania style retro action platformer with different playable characters available to switch between. That way you can use their unique abilities to tackle different challenges on the fly.

Super Bomberman R

  • Available 16 February to 15 March 2019

Super Bomberman R marks the return of one of the best couch co-op games of all time and features an in-depth single-player campaign, as well as plenty of multiplayer fun.

Assassin's Creed Rogue

  • Available 1 - 15 February 2019

An Xbox 360 game available through backward compatibility, Assassin's Creed Rogue is one of the great, unsung Assassin's Creed games, not least because it has you play a member of the Templar Order rather than an actual Assassin.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

  • Available 16 - 28 February 2019

Also available through backward compatibility, this is one of the great original Xbox titles. The graphics might seen a little clunky these days, but the first-person shooter still stands up as one of the most inventive Star Wars games around.

The latter two games are also available for Xbox 360 owners who have Xbox Live Gold membership. Xbox One Games with Gold still offers last month's WRC 6 driving game too - which is available until 15 February.
