One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in December 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Greetings, gamers! It’s time to welcome the holidays with a new collection of games coming to Games with Gold this December. Starting with the fantastical co-op first-person shooter Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, followed by another great Telltale adventure game as we rejoin Marty and Doc on a new time-traveling escapade in Back to the Future: The Game – 30th Anniversary Edition.
On Xbox 360, and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility is the rhythm-action game Child of Eden created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi (best known for the classic Rez), then later in December is the pulp-inspired action game Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death to dish some hack-n-slash adventure.
All games will be available for a limited time as part of Games with Gold, so get Xbox Live Gold today to ensure you get your hands on these and any future Games with Gold games as an Xbox Live Gold member.
