Worms Battlegrounds is now available for free on Xbox One with Gold membership

Last week, Microsoft announced that December's free Games with Gold would be Worms Battlegrounds for Xbox One users. Well today is the first day of December so you can head to your Xbox One or just use the Xbox One SmartGlass app to fetch the app for download.

Worms Battlegrounds is a turn based strategy game in which the objective is to use different weapons and items to defeat the opposing team. This version of worms features a hefty total of 65 weapons. The game takes place within a world history museum and follows the worms as they attempt to stop Lord Crowley-Mesmer from taking control of the museum.

The game released earlier this year in May as part of the ID@Xbox program. Fellow writer, Paul Acevedo, stated in his review (which you can read here) that he enjoyed the game especially with the new expansive clan feature. He did feel as though the game was a little overpriced with its launch price of $24.99. So if you have an Xbox Gold membership you should definitely take advantage of it being free until January 1, 2015.
