Never Alone, Dragon Age 2 Headline December's Xbox Games With Gold Lineup

Never Alone, Dragon Age 2 Headline December's Xbox Games With Gold Lineup

The next four downloadable games through Xbox Live Gold are en route.

The next lineup for Xbox Games with Gold has been revealed. For the month of December, Xbox One subscribers will be able to download Qube 2 and Never Alone. Qube 2 will be downloadable during the whole month of December, while Never Alone will be available from December 16 to January 15. Other games joining December's lineup are some classics from Xbox 360 and the original Xbox.

Dragon Age 2 (available from December 1 to 15) and Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction (available from December 16 to 31) will also be available next month for the Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you missed out on last month's games, you still have time to download Battlefield 1 and Dante's Inferno before they go away on November 30, and you have until December 15 for Race the Sun.

Of December's offerings, Never Alone is the clear stand out. Developed in partnership with Alaska Natives, it adapts a classic Iñupiaq tale. It's a fairly straight forward puzzle-platformer, as you play as a girl and her Arctic fox, but its art style is really striking. It's a really lovely, touching game, making it a great addition for the holiday season.

Xbox Live Gold isn't Microsoft's only subscription pass for the Xbox One. There's also the excellent Game Pass, which is basically like Netflix but for a vast library of Xbox games, including first party titles. On Amazon currently, you can even save $50 on a 12-month membership for Xbox Game Pass.
