Microsoft will offer its Xbox Live Gold subscribers a chance to download #IDARB for the Xbox One for free during the month of February. Xbox 360 owners can download Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and Sniper Elite 2 for free next month as well as part of the Games for Gold program.
Also known as It Draws a Red Box, #IDARB will be making its Xbox One debut in February as well and will be free for Xbox Live Gold members the entire month. The game, with retro-style graphics, will be a mashup of different game genres, including sports, platforming and fighting. The game will be available for $14.99 for non-Gold users. Microsoft says:
"IDARB features tight controls and a frenetic, eight-player local co-op core that makes it a blast to play offline or online. The game was built based on suggestions that developer Other Ocean Interactive received from fans on Twitter, and includes some truly unique game options, including the ability to make your own music, characters, and spectator interaction with real-time games via social media! One of the most exciting things about the game is that it's ever-changing, and the developer has promised to continue adding new content, characters, and even gameplay elements over the course of #IDARB's life cycle."

"Control both brothers at once as you experience co-op play in single player mode, like never before. Solve puzzles, explore the varied locations and fight boss battles, controlling one brother with each thumb stick. This is one journey you will never forget."
