December Games with Gold for Xbox

December Games with Gold

Microsoft continues to offer free games for Xbox Live Gold members through the Games with Gold program. The company unveiled the free games that will be available to Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners in December.

Xbox One owners will be able to download The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing at no charge throughout December. Thief, which originally released early last year, will be available from Dec. 16 to Jan. 1.

On Xbox 360, Castlestorm is free from Dec. 1 to Dec. 15. Sacred 3 will be offered from Dec. 16 to Dec. 31.

The Games with Gold program usually consists of two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games, but Microsoft is offering and extra title for the holidays. Beginning on Dec. 16, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will be available at no charge.

What is significant about December’s Games with Gold is it the first offering of free games since Microsoft began backwards compatibility for Xbox One. The company said that every Games with Gold title offered for Xbox 360 would be backwards compatible on Xbox One going forward.

Operation Flashpoint and Castlestorm are already playable on Xbox One, but it appears that Sacred 3 will be the latest game to join the growing list of compatible games.

Quick Take

The Games with Gold program has largely consisted of digital only and indie titles, but Microsoft is stepping it up lately. Tomb Raider was offered in November, and Thief is an pretty big game to give away. Now if only Microsoft would offer some more recent big-name titles.
