Earlier this week, Microsoft confirmed via their blog that Thief, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, CastleStorm, Sacred 3, and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will all be available for free during the December “Games With Gold” promotion.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing and Thief are the two free Xbox One games for the month. Van Helsing will be available for download starting on December 1st and last all month long. Thief can be downloaded anytime between December 16th and January 15th.
From December 1st through the 15th, Xbox 360 owners will be able to download CastleStorm. The second half of the month ends off with Sacred 3 and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. It’s also worth adding that all three of these Xbox 360 games can now be played on the Xbox One thanks to the backwards compatibility feature.
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing intrigues me, but I’m not particularly impressed by any of Microsoft’s other offerings next month. This would have been the perfect time to introduce new Xbox One owners to some of the older launch games like Ryse: Son of Rome or Dead Rising 3. Perhaps those games will finally become free for all in 2016.
Will any of you be downloading any of these games for free? Please feel free to let us know your thoughts on these titles and more in the comments section below.
