Microsoft has announced their Games with Gold "free" games for January 2022 already. I assume this early announcement is due to those silly things like Christmas and New Years coming up at a rapid rate.

These games will start to be available starting on January 1, 2022. The games include NeuroVoider, Aground, Radiant Silvergun, and Space Invaders Infinity Gene. As always, these games are "free" provided you add them to your account while you have an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.

NeuroVoider | January 1-31
Set in a cybernetic world and featuring an original soundtrack from cyberpunk artist, Dan Terminus, battle through hordes of vigilante robots using endless combinations of nuclear-powered weapons. Play co-op with up to four of your friends or rampage alone in this hack ’n’ slash twin-stick shooter RPG.

Aground | January 16 - February 15
For humanity to survive and reach the stars, you’ll need to craft and build. Whether unlocking new technology, raising dragons, or launching into space, the sky is literally not the limit. Recover what was lost and rebuild everything!

Radiant Silvergun | January 1-15
Restored by Treasure, the legendary vertical-shooter returns with the same shoot ‘em up gameplay which made the original arcade version so famous. New additions, such as the “Ikaruga-style” shooting mode help elevate the fun in this fantastic shooter.

Space Invaders Infinity Gene | January 16-31
The game that defined video games for generations is back with a new twist. Play a total of 143 stages which evolve in both look and feel the more you play. Unlock new stages, new power ups, and new features, all to imaginatively stunning visuals.
