Microsoft announced Monday the two games that will be free to Xbox 360 owners in January as part of the Games with Gold program.

Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers will be able to start the new year off with the downloadable version of the retail title Sleeping Dogs plus the co-op arcade game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

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.

An Xbox LIVE Gold subscription is required to download the games for free but, once purchased, the games are yours to keep even after your subscription ends. You can pick up a year subscription from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and other retailers.
