December marks the end of 2016, and the last batch of free games for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Let’s have a look at the games arriving in your stockings this season.
As usual, Xbox One players can check out all four titles due to backwards compatibility with Xbox 360.
On Xbox One, you’ll first receive Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, a remaster of the 2012 open-world game where you play as an undercover agent infiltrating a gang. The other Xbox One title is Outlast, a super-scary game where you can’t fight back. You must to run and hide, or be killed.
Xbox 360 players get Outland, an action platformer with a dual-color theme. The other Xbox 360 title is Burnout Paradise, the excellent open-world entry in the chaotic (but sadly defunct) driving series.
Those with a PS4 can download Invisible, Inc., a turn-based stealth game where you must remotely direct agents to keep them safe. The PS4’s other free game is Stories: The Path of Destinies, an action RPG that lets you choose your own path and end up with one of 24 different endings.
The PS3 receives Hyper Void, a 3D space shooter, and Tiny Troopers: Joint Ops, an arcade shooter that looks like it was ripped right from mobile platforms.
Vita owners can download Color Guardians, a cutesy arcade platformer that tasks you with returning color to your world. The list caps off with VVVVVV, the excellent indie platformer whose retro difficulty is balanced with plenty of checkpoints. It’s a tiny game with tons of fun to offer.
