Microsoft’s Christmas line-up for Xbox Games with Gold has been revealed!

Between December 1st and December 15th, you’ll be able to claim access to the fantastic puzzle game Qube 2 alongside Bioware’s Dragon Age 2.

In Q.U.B.E. 2 you play as Amelia Cross, an archaeologist who has awoken among the ruins of an alien landscape. With the distant help of another survivor, you must manipulate the structure of this mysterious world and find a way back home. As you explore and solve puzzles to progress, thought-provoking questions about your true purpose and the origins of the structure you are navigating will need to be considered, forcing you to come to terms with a devastating truth that will shake your world.

Experience the epic sequel to the 2009 Game of the Year from the critically acclaimed makers of Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2. You are one of the few who escaped the destruction of your home. Now, forced to fight for survival in an ever-changing world, you must gather the deadliest of allies, amass fame and fortune, and seal your place in history. This is the story of how the world changed forever. The legend of your Rise to Power begins now.

Between December 16th and 31st, you’ll be able to download the first Original Xbox game that has appeared in Games with Gold – Mercenaries!.

Anything goes in this Playground of Destruction. You are a lethal Mercenary. Your mission is to topple a sinister military regime by any means necessary. If it drives or flies, you can hijack it. If it shoots or explodes, you can use it as a weapon. You are free to go anywhere, destroy anything and blow the crap out of everything. In this playground of destruction, there are no limits, no barriers and no mercy.

Never Alone, a beautiful puzzle game, will be available to download between December 16th and January 15th.

Built in partnership with the Alaska Native community, Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) delves deeply into the traditional lore of the Iñupiat people of the Arctic to present a game experience like no other.

It’s not exactly the most exciting month, but every game here is fantastic. Well, Dragon Age 2 is only okay, but the rest are brilliant!
