As the year draws to a close, there is one month of free games left on the subscription services for 2021. Microsoft has now announced upcoming games for Xbox Games with gold for December. With such a range of subscription gaming services available today, gamers have a wide selection of services to choose from. While Games with Gold hasn’t received as much praise as Xbox Game Pass, it’s very easy for Xbox owners to use both services, and there have been a number of notable Games with Gold. This month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will have access to two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games, available through backward compatibility.
This month’s four games have a combined retail value of $ 69.96. December’s lineup of free games will give subscribers access to a selection of eclectic and lightweight games, suitable for the increasingly busy holiday season. Xbox has received a lot of praise for its strong push towards backward compatibility, and Games with Gold has often offered a variety of old and new games. The same goes for this month, and while not all gamers are keen to pay for these titles, this service provides a great opportunity to experience different games and maybe find something surprising. Xbox games to be won are Tropico 5, The Escapist 2, Orcs Must Die !, and Incredibly twisted shadow planet. Co-op fans will want to check out Escape 2, in particular, or possibly Tropic 5, and the full range is explained below.
Tropico 5 – Pentilutimate Edition
Tropic 5 is a construction and management simulation, and as for the previous ones Tropic games, the player will have to deal with political developments in a relatively relaxed and comical manner. This game was actually banned in Thailand for fear that the political content of the game would upset the country’s precarious political balance. However, generally, players find the imagined political situation of Tropic 5 be a fun setup to play as a dictator or aim for a more democratic path.
Unlike the previous one Tropic games, this game will also include a cooperative mode, allowing players to build towns next to each other and choose to be friendly or hostile to other players. With a Gold membership, players will also have access to The Big Cheese and Hostile Takeover DLC. Tropic 5 will be available on Games with Gold from December 16 to January 15.
Escape 2 is a fun top-down RPG. In the game, players control an inmate trying to escape from the prison, using any means possible. The game has combat and stamina mechanics, which require strategic play. The most fun in this game is playing with friends, however, where players can work together to stage wild prison escapes or run against each other for the fastest possible escape. In the continuity of 2015 The Escape, this game offers more complex combat and customization mechanics and includes a wider variety of prison settings to escape. Feedback from the first game led the development team to essentially build Escape 2 from the ground. This game will be available on Games with Gold throughout December.
The orcs must die!
The first entry into the The orcs must die! The series is a common inclusion on free-to-play game services and is a tower defense game where players control a powerful war mage. Originally released in 2011, the game has been well received by gamers and it’s a smart choice, of course, for Games with Gold this month. The turns in this game are rifts, which are magical openings between the human world and the “Dead World”.
The player will place various traps to defend the rifts and can also engage in combat to repel the waves of attacking orcs. After defeating these waves, players earn money and then skulls for the last wave; These can be used to purchase new traps, expand the mage’s spellbook, and upgrade items. The orcs must die! is a fun and well-designed game for fans of the genre, and will be available from December 1st to 15th.
Incredibly twisted shadow planet
Incredibly twisted shadow planet is a puzzle game largely inspired by the series of animator Michael Gange Incredibly Twisted Sock Puppets made for Nickelodeon. Gange teamed up with game developer Joe Olsen to create this game, despite Ganges’ familiarity with the games ending in 1993. Loss. The 2D adventure game will see players fight in the center of the mysterious Shadow Planet. The puzzles and the fights are engaging, but more importantly, it marks another example of collaboration between TV and movie hosts and game developers, which is always a good thing for the industry as a whole, especially in terms of visual styles. This game will be available from December 16 to 31.
There isn’t a standout game in this month’s pick, but there are a variety of genres on offer to appeal to different players. There were rumors earlier this year that Games with Gold could potentially be discontinued by Microsoft, and in general, the full 2021 lineup has been viewed as somewhat lackluster overall. As such, gamers will want to quickly pick up any available games that interest them. However, the service definitely offered a good incentive to subscribe, with a wide range of games giving players plenty of opportunities to get their money’s worth. Although Game Pass is the most popular Xbox service, this year has seen Games with gold include games like Gears 5, Resident Evil, and death rising. With offers like these, there are still plenty of reasons to subscribe to the service at the moment, even though it faces strong competition from other services that offer free games.
