Xbox Newsbeat: November 27, 2015

Xbox One Xbox 360 News Microsoft


With Microsoft’s biggest releases of the year out of the way, things are a bit quieter this week on the Xbox Newsbeat.

Close out an Awesome Year with December’s Games with Gold

December is bringing a new batch of games for the Xbox Games with Gold program. Gamers can snag the following titles next month:

  • The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing ($14.99 ERP): Available from December 1-31 on Xbox One
  • Thief ($39.95 ERP): Available from December 16-January 15 on Xbox One
  • CastleStorm ($9.95 ERP): Available from December 1-15 on Xbox 360
  • Sacred 3 ($29.95 ERP): Available from December 16-31 on Xbox 360
  • Bonus: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising ($14.95 ERP): Available from December 16-31 on Xbox 360

Microsoft is throwing in Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising this month as a holiday bonus to Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Xbox One owners should note that only Sacred 3 isn’t backwards compatible; however, with full Xbox 360 backward compatibility promised, it is only a matter of time before Sacred 3 will be up and running on Xbox One.


The 14 Coolest Xbox Live Arcade Games That You Can Now Play on Xbox One

If you skipped out on the Xbox 360, you missed out on a lot of great Xbox Live Arcade Games. Ranging from classic games ported to modern consoles to indie gems, the Xbox Wire team put together a list of their 14 favourite games that can now be played on Xbox One thanks to Xbox One Backward Compatibility. Personally, I highly recommend Beyond Good & Evil HD from that list. The much anticipated sequel is still in development, so the HD remake should get gamers up to speed before the release.
