Microsoft Announces Xbox Games with Gold for December

Microsoft has revealed today the Xbox Games with Gold for the month of December 2022. Since October, Microsoft is no longer offering two free Xbox 360 games every month as part of its Games with Gold program, so Xbox Live Gold subscribers are now left with just two free Xbox One games.

The first Xbox Games with Gold title for December is Colt Canyon, a 2D pixel art shooter that will be free to claim starting December 1. It will be followed on December 16 by Bladed Fury, an action game set in ancient China.

Overall, these two games represent $35 in value and 2000 in Gamerscore. As usual, if you can claim both of these games for free with your subscription, you’ll still need to keep an active Xbox Live Gold membership to play them on your console.

It’s hard to be excited about new Games with Gold these days when all the biggest games are now hitting Microsoft’s Game Pass service. And it shouldn’t be too long before the Xbox team reveals the first new games coming to the Game Pass library in December.

This month has actually been a pretty good one for Game Pass subscribers: We’ve had the surprise indie hit Vampire Survivors, Halo Infinite’s Winter Update with online co-op support for the campaign, as well as the Xbox console-exclusive games Somerville and Pentiment.
