Xbox Games With Gold awards free games every month to those who subscribe. These games vary greatly, some being smaller indie titles and others more familiar experiences. It’s always worth checking what free games there are each month as you can download them and save them for later.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can claim two games a month, from AAA blockbusters to beloved indie titles. Unlike Sony’s free PlayStation Plus games, Games with Gold takes a staggered approach.
Microsoft typically adds its free Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One games to the service throughout the month, with one available from the start of a new month until the end, and the other around the middle of the current month and then running into the next month.
Here are the free Xbox Games With Gold games you can claim in December 2022. Check back for next month’s list of games!
