Dead Island rumoured as February's first free Xbox Live Gold game

Xbox Live's 'Games with Gold' promotion has yet to be unveiled for February, but rumblings suggest that Dead Island will be the first free game offered next month.

It comes from this NeoGAF thread and the user who started the Dead Island rumour isn't letting on where they got their information from. As such, treat this as a rumour for now.

We're only reporting on it at all because let's be honest, it wouldn't be the first time Xbox Live's free game promo had been leaked ahead of time.

We'll update you once the free games get confirmed later today.
