Xbox Games with Gold announced for December 2018

Here’s what Xbox Live Gold members can play on Xbox One and Xbox 360 for December

December 2018’s Xbox Live Games with Gold have been revealed and the lineup is giving gamers some early presents for the month where lots of people around the world celebrate the winter solstice with gift exchanges. This month features Q.U.B.E. 2, Never Alone and more.

To keep up with all the Xbox Live Games with Gold news, be sure to visit our Xbox Live Games with Gold section here at SCG, which is located under our “More from SCG” menu.

The page features a list of every game that’s ever been offered on the Games with Gold program, so you can take a look at what you’ve missed or get a reminder of what you downloaded at this time last year.

Here is the full list of games being offered for the month:

December 2018

  • Q.U.B.E. 2 (Xbox One) (Dec. 1 – 31)
  • Never Alone (Xbox One) (Dec. 16 – Jan. 15)
  • Dragon Age II (Xbox 360) (Dec. 1 – 15)
  • Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction (Xbox) (Dec. 16 – 31)

If you’ve yet to grab November’s games, you’ve got until Dec. 1 (note that some games carry over to the following month, some games don’t become free until the middle of the month and other games may have ended in the middle of last month).

Don’t forget, Microsoft offers weekly sales, many of which have deeper discounts for subscribers or are locked out to non-subscribers, so be sure to hit up Major Nelson’s Xbox Blog or just keep an eye on the Xbox Store for more information on those.

Also, keep in mind that Xbox 360 Games with Gold are playable on Xbox One via Xbox One’s backward compatibility feature.

Xbox Live Gold runs $59.99 a year, but discounts can be found from time to time. For more information on other services Xbox Live Gold offers, please visit the official Xbox web page.

Don’t forget to keep it locked to SCG for monthly updates on subscription game offerings and everything else gamers from the River City and beyond need to know.

  1. Wow, this is a really good month for me personally. I just finished Q.U.B.E. and was planning on picking up the sequel over the holidays, I was planning a new run through of Dragon Age on my Xbox and the only game missing from my collection was Dragon Age II, and my husband loves Mercenaries and was recently saying how he’d love to replay it. First time in a while that I’ll actually play my Games with Gold, honestly.

    1. Hi, Hannie. Thanks for commenting. I definitely agree. Never played Q.U.B.E., so looking forward to trying it out and Mercenaries is a fun game. Glad you found our post useful and are looking forward to December’s games!
