December is looking to be a really good month in gaming, even more so for Xbox One gamers. The Xbox One recently received an update that allows the console to play Xbox 360 games with all the features that you’d find in Xbox One games. This includes taking screenshots of that awesome moment you need to show a mate, or even a video clip of your epic fail/fall from grace in Crackdown. It’s lovely. Truly.
What’s more is that the monthly Games With Gold count will see games being added that are backward compatible, meaning that Xbox One players needn’t dig out the Xbox 360 to play their free games. Not bad at all.
December’s Games With Gold freebies have been announced over on the official Xbox blog. The full list is down beyond.
- The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing – December 1st – December 31st
- Thief – December 16th – January 15th
- CastleStorm – December 1st – December 15th
- Sacred 3 – December 16th – December 31st
- Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising – December 16th – December 31st
Not a bad month. CastleStorm comes highly recommended from The Games Cabin, as does Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, though it’s not your Call of Duty clone, it’s more of a tactical shooter. Perfect for those who like to utilise their noggin during gameplay.
And that’s your lot. Pleased with what’s being dished up, or are you feeling a little sick looking at the selection? Let us know down in the comments section below.
