Xbox Games with Gold Revealed for December

It’s that time of the month again as Xbox confirm the Games with Gold for the next month. With Backwards Compatibility now being available on Xbox One, all games listed can now be played on the current generation console.

Revealed today the games coming to Games with Gold are:

  • The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ($14.99 ERP): Available from December 1-31 on Xbox One
  • Thief ($29.99 ERP): Available from December 16-January 15 on Xbox One
  • CastleStorm ($9.99 ERP): Available from December 1-15 on Xbox 360
  • Sacred 3 ($19.99 ERP): Available from December 16-31 on Xbox 360
  • Bonus: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising ($9.99 ERP): Available from December 16-31 on Xbox 360

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an action-role-playing game for the Xbox One. Similar in style to Diablo expect plenty of monster slaying action with this one. With a deep story and good character development there is plenty of hours to get out of this one.

The reboot of Thief will also be coming to the Xbox One and brings action-stealth gameplay to the current generation of consoles. If you are skilful enough not to get caught while on your missions of course.

For Xbox 360 CastleStorm is a tower defence game with a twist, Sacred 3 brings hack-and-slash action set in a medieval fantasy world, and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising which brings some team based FPS action. This brings 3 games to the Xbox 360, and a total of 5 for Xbox One through the use of Backwards Compatibility. Plenty of variety, but to end the year could Xbox have brought some bigger triple A action to Gold players?
