This is it, the final month of Games with Gold for 2015. Do you know what that means? We get our usual 4 free games, but we also get a 5th game thrown into the bunch! Let’s see what we’re given.

For Xbox One, we will receive The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ($14.99 USD) from Neocore Games from December 1st – December 15th. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is an action role-playing game that focuses on Bram Stoker’s Dracula story, following the trials that the young Van Helsing had to go through. This game released just in time for Games with Gold and has received relatively positive scores, with two sequels spawning from it.

Also releasing on Xbox One, from December 16th – January 15th, we will be receiving Thief ($29.99 USD) from Eidos MontrealThief is a stealth-based action game where the player goes to steal from the rich. There are multiple routes in each map, so that players who prefer a lethal or stealth approach can play the game that they want.

Going onto Xbox 360, we have three games releasing. From December 1st – December 15th, we have CastleStorm ($9.99 USD), a game we received back in May for Xbox One.

From December 16th – December 31st, we’ll be receiving two games. The first one is Sacred 3 ($19.99 USD) from Keen GamesSacred 3, as the name entails, is the 3rd of a hack and slash brawler series where players must choose from multiple classes to stop the Ashen Empire from stealing the Heart of Ancaria.

The second game, included as the bonus for the holiday season, is called Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising ($9.99 USD), an open world military simulator game created by Codemasters. The player tries to take control of the fictional island of Skira from the Russian Federation as the People’s Liberation Army. This takes place in 2011, on an island based on the real island of Kiska.

Well, there you have it. We are receiving $84.96 worth of free games in this month alone and these games are pretty well rated, with being either neutral or receiving most positive reviews. Check back later this month for an entire list of free games we received.
