We are now in the middle of December, so it means that Xbox Live Gold subscribers can now download more free games. Now, we'll give the list of free games available for this month of December and game predictions for January next year.
Xbox users with Gold subscription are now waiting for the titles of free games scheduled in January next year. However, Microsoft has not yet made any formal announcements about the titles of free games. Gamers may now only guess about what those games might ultimately be.
In the past few months, gamers found that Microsoft is offering games in a distinct pattern. The tech giant is always offering a set of triple A games. Moreover, there are times when a triple A game is released and then mixed in with a few unpopular titles, but the frequency of the triple A game is becoming more and more consistent.
As an illustration, the company offered "The Witcher 2" as a free gold game for premium members in January this year. In next the month, they released "The Witcher 2" as February's free gold game.
In addition, "Just Cause 2" is made available in June. In the next month, the company offered "Just Cause 3." Based on the pattern, gamers can confidently say they can predict the upcoming major releases for next year.
As of now, gamers have only one confirmed free game for the month of January next year. According to GameSpot, "Thief" is now available via the Xbox Live Games with Gold service and it will continue to be playable up until Jan. 15, 2016.
The stealth video game is a reboot of a 1998 title. The player controls Garrett in a steampunk Victorian world and the game is focused on stealing from the rich. The main tactic of the game is to avoid fistfights and instead sneak around the enemies. Check out the game's trailer below:
