It’s up to subscribers to decide what’s been the best month for free Xbox games in 2021.

The Games with Gold lineup for December has just been announced and includes an interesting mix of free games for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

The Escapists 2 headlines and will be available for download on December 1, 2021, for all subscribers.

This will be followed by Tropico 5 – Penultimate Edition on December 16, which will round out the free Xbox One games for the year.

This is the second Tropic game to be featured in Games with Gold in 2021, and Xbox 360 Tropico 4 was added to the list in May.

New classic games available for download this month include Orcs Must Die! Going live on December 1, followed by Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet on December 16.

Descriptions for all four games can be found below:

The Escapists 2

From the tundra to the desert, join three of your friends to form the ultimate crew and realize the wildest escapes from some of the toughest prisons in the world. Live by the rules, attend roll call and follow strict routines while secretly planning and executing your bid for freedom!

Tropico 5 – Penultimate edition

In this penultimate edition, including The Big Cheese and Hostile Takeover add-ons, you’ll expand your dynasty’s rule from the early colonial period to beyond the 21st century. Build your city’s infrastructure, plan your trade routes and utilize new technologies in the fifth installment of the fan-favorite city-building series.

Orcs must die!

As a powerful war mage, defend twenty-four fortresses against a multitude of beastly enemies, using a variety of weapons and traps at your disposal. No matter how you manage it, you will have a blast destroying rampaging monsters in this imaginative action strategy game.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

Explore unique environments in the 2D action-adventure game Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Make your way to the center of the mysterious Shadow Planet, solving complex puzzles and battling bizarre creatures as you fight to save your home world.

None of these can really compete with Microsoft’s other massive free-to-play launch this month, following the early release of Halo Infinite Multiplayer.

Unlike the titles in Games with Gold, no subscription is required to download and enjoy the new Halo experience.

Gamers can simply head over to the Microsoft Store and download the Halo Infinite beta on Xbox One or Xbox Series X.

The full version of the game – including the Halo Infinite Campaign – costs money to own or an Xbox Game Pass subscription.

The Halo Infinite Story will be playable on December 8 on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
