XBOX GAMES WITH GOLD FREE GAMES FOR DECEMBER 2017
Along with the larger games, a few indies usually make the Games with Gold list as well every month. For December 2017, we think we’ll see puzzle/platformer Braid from well-known indie developer Jonathan Blow. At one point, Braid was the highest-rated Xbox Live Arcade Game on Metacritic with a score of 93%, and is often considered one of the best indie games of all time.
Another great one to include would be Ori and the Blind Forest from Moon Studio, which has a sequel Ori and the Will of the Wisps that was announced at E3 2017 and is coming exclusively to Microsoft on Xbox One and PC.
Ori and the Blind Forest is a beautiful platform-adventure game with a story that was inspired by both The Iron Giant and The Lion King. A Definitive Edition was released in 2016 that included new areas, secrets, abilities, difficulty modes, and more. It’s honestly surprising it has yet to make it to Games with Gold thus far, and with a sequel on the horizon it would seem likely we’ll see it there soon.
Make sure to check back next month after the holiday rush when we look at what game’s might be coming for January 2018 to Games with Gold.
