Of these, Breakdown is perhaps the least known. Here’s how Xbox describes the video game:
“Trapped inside a mysterious lab and unable to remember his past, Derrick Cole must fight his way out using his newfound extraordinary powers. Combining hand-to-hand combat, state-of-the-art weapons, and an intense story line, embark on a thrilling and suspenseful search for the truth in this first-person action-adventure title.”
Similar to PlayStation Plus, these free video games are available to folks that subscribe to Xbox Live Gold, which is available for $9.99 per month and broadly allows for multiplayer online gaming. Additionally, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are both now available for $499 and $299, respectively. You can also check out all of our previous coverage of Xbox right here.
