Microsoft has announced the four free games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in December 2019.

Jurassic World Evolution is the pick of December’s Xbox Games with Gold. Frontier Developments’ business and park simulation game received a muted critical reception on release but it has received multiple content updates and has gone on to sell over two million units. Considering the complexity of the game, the console port is also nicely handled.

Also coming to Xbox One is Playniac’s turn-based rogue-like card battler, Insane Robots.


December’s Xbox 360 games are the loose video game adaptation of Toy Story 3 from Avalanche Studios, and Mercury Steam’s 2013 action-adventure, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. Unfortunately, it’s not one of the franchise’s best games and doesn’t live up to studio’s first effort from 2010.

Both Xbox 360 games are also playable on Xbox One via Backwards compatibility. Here are the availability dates for each of December’s Games with Gold.

Xbox Games With Gold – December 2019

Xbox One

  • Insane Robots – December 1 to 30
  • Jurassic World Evolution – December 16 to January 15

Xbox 360 and Xbox One

  • Toy Story 3 – December 1 to 15
  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD – December 16 to 31

Two of December’s Xbox Games with Gold games – Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter and Joy Ride Turbo – remain available to download until November 30. The Final Station is also available until December 15. And don’t forget to check out this month’s free PlayStation Plus games.
