Burnout Paradise and Outlast arrives free to Xbox Live Gold members

The second round of free games has hit the Microsoft Consoles this month, with two new games. The horror game Outlast for the Xbox One, while the Xbox 360 is getting the racing title Burnout Paradise.

This means last month’s free games Murdered: Soul Suspect and Outland are no longer up for grabs. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for the Xbox One, however, will be free for the rest of the month.

Xbox Live Games with Gold

Subscribers to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold service have been eligible to claim free games every month for quite some time now. While Xbox One’s free games deactivate if the gold subscription expires (until resubscribed), Xbox 360’s games are permanently linked.

With the launch of the Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility Program, free games for the Xbox 360 are also claimable through the newer console; Effectively doubling the games Gold members receive to four per month.

Free games this month

December freebies started off with developer United Front’s open world action-adventure hit – Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, for the Xbox One. Released in 2012, involving an undercover police operation set in Hong Kong; Sleeping Dogs rose to claim multiple awards for its varied gameplay and storytelling.

Next up is Outlast by the developer Red Barrels, for the Xbox One. A terrifying first-person survival horror game set in an insane asylum being explored by a journalist equipped with a camera. The timing for this offer is perfect, as a sequel to Outlast is set to arrive early next year.

Lastly, Criterion Games’ classic open world racer, Burnout Paradise for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One through Backwards Compatibility Program. Now eight years old, Burnout Paradise is still named one of the best racers to be released; getting praise for its combination of high-speed racing and spectacular wrecks.

Availability

Xbox 360 owners may also claim the games available to the Xbox One; remaining linked to their account if moving to the newer system at a later date.

All the games listed above are claimable on their store pages, linked here – Watch Dogs: Definitive Edition, Outlast and Burnout Paradise.

These offers are only for Xbox Live Gold subscription holders, which is available to purchase –  here –  starting at $9.99 a month.
