Everyone is getting into the holiday spirit, and that means it's time for a new batch of Games with Gold through Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Games with Gold for December (opens in new tab) includes four titles worth a combined $74.96 and 3,200 Gamerscore, and will all be compatible with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and Xbox One. You have to be subscribed to Xbox Live Gold to redeem the games, but Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have access to Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for PC and console, and Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) in one subscription.
All four of these games will be available throughout the month of December and can be redeemed and played by anyone who has an Xbox Live Gold subscription. The first game that will be available is Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, an Xbox 360 title, from December 1, 2020, to December 15. Then you have the Raven Remastered, which will be available from December 1 to December 31. Next is Stacking, another Xbox 360 title, which will be available from December 16 to December 31. Finally, there's Bleed 2, which will be available from December 16 to January 15.
The best way to get in on Games with Gold is definitely through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, one of the best values in gaming, which is currently on sale for a 3-month subscription. If you're looking to upgrade your gaming experience, consider one of the Best Headsets for Xbox Series X|S for the greatest in gaming audio, or one of the Best Controllers for Xbox Series X|S, to ensure you're as competitive as possible.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
All your gaming needs, in one subscription.
Is the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate the best value in all of gaming? It's possible. Ultimate bundles your Xbox Live Gold subscription, an Xbox Game Pass subscription for both Xbox consoles and Windows PCs, and Xbox Cloud Gaming for on-the-go. That means access to hundreds of games, with more added all the time, for a single monthly subscription cost.

I always look forward to seeing Games with Gold but have been disappointed as of late. I get we may not get the latest and greatest, but PlayStation has done consistently better with their monthly games than Xbox. I really wonder when Microsoft scraps this program and simply adds them as Game Pass games instead.
Yeah, Game Pass killed GwG pretty sure they only keep it going because they feel obligated to, but they should just get rid of it.
