Xbox One and Xbox 360 Free Games With Gold for December 2015

Five free games coming for Xbox Live Gold members next month.

Microsoft today announced the free titles that will be available to Xbox Live Gold members in December, a list which includes a bonus Xbox 360 game.

On Xbox One, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing will be free throughout the month of December. Starting on December 16, Thief will join it as a free download.

On Xbox 360, CastleStorm will be free for the first half of the month. On December 16, it'll be replaced by Sacred 3 and, as an extra gift for the holidays, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising.

Microsoft has said all 360 games released through Games With Gold at this point will be backwards-compatible on Xbox One. Of December's three games, Sacred 3 is only one to not currently be on the list of supported games, perhaps signaling that it'll be added once December rolls around.

The full schedule for December's Games With Gold lineup follows below.
