Xbox 360 Sleeping Dogs

If you love free stuff, Xbox Live has you covered. Each month, Xbox rewards their Xbox Live Gold members with free games, and this month their Xbox 360 “Games with Gold” program has two titles up for grabs: the open-world crime game Sleeping Dogs, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Until January 15, Xbox Live Gold members can download Sleeping Dogs, and then Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light becomes available for the second half of the month, starting on January 16.

Here are the official details on each title. Download the games from your Xbox 360 dashboard, or through your account on

Sleeping Dogs will take you to Hong Kong, a vibrant city whose exotic locations hide one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the Triads. You’ll play Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. You’ll have to prove yourself worthy as you fight your way up the organization, taking part in criminal activities without blowing your cover. In time, you will risk everything as the lines between truth, loyalty and justice become permanently blurred.

Experience the first ever co-op action-adventure game featuring Lara Croft in Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Team up with a friend or go at it alone as you traverse and solve deadly traps, fight hordes of undead enemies, and collect over 60 artifacts and relics. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light offers fast-paced action and breathtaking visuals shown through an isometric view.
