Despite the many discounts brought by the various Black Friday campaigns, Microsoft keeps its promise to bring Xbox Live Gold subscribers free games every month, and December will not be an exception. Although none of the December offers have a version optimized for the new Xbox Series X and Series S, you are guaranteed to be able to install the games without any problem on your new console.
However, it seems that Black Friday discounts have ended up considerably affecting the offer of free Xbox Games with Gold games for December. After long months of criticism, Microsoft seemed finally determined to offer at least one major title a month, but that won’t happen in December.
Considering the 4 offers, most likely the main highlight will fall on one of the offers in the backwards compatibility program.
4 games that will be totally free for Xbox during December 2020
- The Raven Remastered – available December 1 – December 31
- Bleed 2 – available between December 16 and January 15
- Saints Row: Gate out of Hell – available between December 1st and 15th
- Stacking – available between December 16 and 31
There is little doubt that Saints Row could be the most interesting game among the December offerings. Although it was released many years ago, it still has everything needed to guarantee long hours of pure entertainment.
If you have not yet downloaded the November games, remember that two of them are still available.
Until the 30th of November you will be able to download the free Lego Indiana Jones and also the Aragami: Shadow Edition.
Microsoft may be considering ending the “Xbox Live Gold” service
First of all, it is important to emphasize that concrete information has not yet emerged to confirm this possibility, being at this point only speculation.
Still, there are several clues that seem to point to a possible disappearance of the Xbox Live Gold subscription, being inevitably replaced by the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
With the incredible growth of the game catalog available on Game Pass Ultimate, it has become an increasingly popular choice among users. In addition, the additions received by the service over recent times increase its value exponentially.
Currently, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offers much more than access to a game catalog:
- Access to more than 100 games for console, PC and Android smartphone
- New games added regularly
- Xbox Game Studio games available on launch day
- Discounts and exclusive offers for members
- Offers in-game in several games
- Play your favorite games on your Android smartphone over the internet
- Includes Xbox Live Gold subscription benefits
- Addition of all games included in the EA Play service
Thus, it would not be surprising if eventually, Microsoft decides to end the existence of Xbox Live Gold, starting to offer only the Xbox Game Pass service.
