Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox Games with Gold lineup for December 2020.

Microsoft’s shift of attention to Xbox Game Pass is evident again with December’s free Games with Gold titles. Just like last month, they are all pretty decent games, but there’s nothing particularly exciting about them.

The Raven: Remastered is a beautiful update to the classic point-and-click whodunit from King Art. The game features an Agatha Christie-style story, fun characters, great performances, and exotic locations.


The Raven is a pretty chill experience, unlike Bleed 2, the air-dodging, bullet-reflecting arcade actioner from indie developer Ian Campbell. Bleed 2 is a finely crafted game with some excellent boss battles, and we’d love to see a sequel at some point.

December’s duo of Back Compat games are Double Fine’s Stacking – a clever puzzle adventure based around Russian matryoshka dolls – and zany open-world action game, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell. Both are playable on every Xbox console from the Xbox 360 onwards.

December’s Games with Gold titles will be available to download and keep for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members from the following dates.
