Next month is Christmas, and the folks at Microsoft are feeling mighty generous as they have upped the usual 4 free games for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 to five.
On the Xbox One subscribers will be able to download 2 free games, and they are The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ($14.99 ERP) and Thief ($29.99 ERP). The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will be available for the entire month of December, whereas Thief will be available from December 16th to January 15th.
Things get even crazier on the Xbox 360 side of things, as here subscribers will be able to download three free games. From December 1st to December 15th subscribers will be able to download Castlestorm ($9.99 ERP), and then from December 16th to December 31st they’ll be able to download both Sacred 3 ($19.99 ERP) and Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising ($9.99 ERP).
Overall, the quality of the games here isn’t incredible or anything, but the sheer quantity more than makes up for it. There are some pretty solid games here, and even though it feels like we’ve been offered Thief for free a million times now it’s still a game that I want to return to at some point.
