Xbox Comes Bearing Games With Gold in December

Free games for Xbox Live Gold subscribers announced for Xbox One and Xbox 360

You’ve managed to stay off the naughty list this year, so we’ve got three very different gifts for you this holiday season.

The first is Worms Battlegrounds for Xbox One, an artillery-based game of annelid annihilation, which should handle your multiplayer strategy fix.

On Xbox 360, you get two totally different titles: The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief and SSX.

The first places you in a graphic adventure set in the 1960s, on the trail of a dapper art thief known as the Raven. The second, a modern day reinvention of one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time, allows you to experience the franchise’s signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.

As usual, all games are available only for a limited time*, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so find a buddy (or not), and jump in! * Worms Battlegrounds ($33.45 AUD RRP): Available from December 1-31 on Xbox One * The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief ($TBA AUD RRP): Available from December 1-15 on Xbox 360 * SSX ($69.95 AUD RRP): Available from December 16-31 on Xbox 360
