With December we welcome Christmas, among many other holidays and it’s time to give gifts of free stuff and Microsoft has decided again to do just that. With December Xbox Live Games with Gold members will receive 5 free games across Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Going forward into 2016, all games that release on Games with Gold will be playable on Xbox One with Xbox 360 backwards compatibility, so you can play every game released no matter if you have an Xbox 360 or not.
For Xbox One, December is kicked off with the action RPG The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, which will be available all month-long from December 1’st to December 13’st.
When December 16th rolls around you’ll also be able to download the blockbuster reboot of action-stealth game Thief.
On Xbox 360, and Xbox One with 360 BC, You’ll be able to download indie hit CastleStorm to start December off, being available from December 1 to December 15.
After that, on December 16 til December 31, you’ll be able to pick up two exciting games in hack-n-slash rpg Sacred 3, and a first person hit in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.
