Microsoft has announced the free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in December 2017.
December’s Xbox Games with Gold highlight is Child of Eden. The game getting a bit now, but fortunately designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi knows how to make a timeless experience, so if you haven’t tried this excellent example of musical synesthesia before, you’re in for a treat.
Also included is four-player co-op FPS Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. The game is also enhanced for Xbox One X, with higher resolution textures, and native 4K support. It’s joined by the oft-forgotten Telltale adventure series, Back to the Future: The Game – 30th Anniversary Edition.
December’s lineup is completed by the pulp hack ’n slash adventure, Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death.
Xbox Games With Gold – December 2017
- Back to the Future: The Game – December 16 to January 15
- Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide – December 1 to 31
Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Child of Eden – December 1 to 15
- Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death – December 16 to 31
Don’t forget, you can still download two of November’s Games with Gold releases. Deadfall Adventure is available until the end of the month, and the wonderful Tales from the Borderlands is free to download until December 15, 2017

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
