Xbox Games with Gold December 2015 surprise confirmed

By Alan Ng - Nov 25, 2015

Microsoft has decided to reveal the Xbox Games with Gold for December 2015 games list on Xbox One and Xbox 360 nice and early.

Usually we would expect the announcement on a Thursday, but the list is now live and we are pleased to confirm that for Xbox One owners – you will have a total of five new games to play next month.

This is due to the fact that Backwards Compatibility is now fully in motion, so any Xbox 360 game included on Games with Gold is also playable instantly on Xbox One – a really nice feature moving forward.


Without further ado, the games available will be Thief and Van Helsing on Xbox One. Xbox 360 titles available are Castlestorm, Sacred 3 and Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising.

Van Helsing will be first up for release on December 1, while Thief will come later on December 16.

Give us your reaction to the list and let us know if you are happy with the free games that Microsoft are essentially dishing out over Christmas.
