Sleeping Dogs will be available free first starting Jan. 1 through Jan. 15. This open-world crime game is set in Hong Kong as players jump in the shoes of undercover cop Wei Shen as he attempts to take down the Triads.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light teams the Tomb Raider heroine with an ancient Mayan warrior to stop a similarly ancient Keeper of Darkness from doing evil things in the world. This can be played as a single-player switching between the two characters or co-cooperatively with two players.
