Army of Two and Zombi now available for free through Xbox Games with Gold
Every month Microsoft gives a few free games to Xbox Live Gold members as part of their subscription.
Starting today, gamers can download Army of Two (opens in new tab) and Zombi (opens in new tab) for Xbox 360 and Xbox One respectively. All Xbox 360 Games with Gold are backward compatible so even those who only own an Xbox One can enjoy the former. Army of Two will be free until the end of the month while Zombi will be available until February 15, 2018.
Army of Two is a third-person shooter with a strong story. The plot begins in 1993 in Somalia when Elliot Salem and Tyson Rios are part of the Ranger Regiment. If follows their journey after a high profile assassination and the consequences of their actions. Despite not getting amazing reviews, Army of Two garnered a lot of praise from gamers which helped it become a franchise.
Updated, January 15, 2018: It appears that for some users, these titles aren't yet free. Ensure the promotion has propagated to your region before completing a checkout.
Zombi launched on Wii U many years ago but eventually came to current-generation consoles. The game is a first-person survival horror title set in London during a zombie apocalypse. You have to survive the ravenous hordes but there's also a larger plot. The player is contacted by the Prepper, a mysterious figure who tasks them with finding a cure for the infection.
Be sure to check out both of these games if you're an Xbox Live Gold member. Army of Two holds up rather well even after all these years and Zombi is almost as entertaining as Killing Floor 2.

Nice to see a classic like this for free. It also has couch co-op.
Zombi was better on Wii U though.
That I actually agree with.
Army of two isn't completable due to the servers are off
Pretty sure that's false. I completed the game on my OG Xbox 360 that was permananently offline. I still have the disc.
This is garbage how do they put a great game like this free but no servers back up, that' the reason I new not to pass this game on hard more for 😧
Zombi is showing but Army of Two isn't? I go to it and it shows me a price, not free.
Yeah same it's not on the Gold page here either.
A quick reset resolved Army of Two not showing up in UK.
