Microsoft’s Games with Gold program is offering four interesting free Xbox One games to fans. In December, Xbox One owners will be able to play Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition, Outlast, Outland and Burnout Paradise, all for free.
Outland is an impressive platformer inspired by the epic adventures such as the Prince of Persia series. In the middle of Balance and Chaos stands one man whose efforts may bridge an ancient divide, or doom the world to destruction.
The gameplay involves using Light (blue) and Dark (red) energies that help players attack monsters born of the opposite energy. If you come across Dark monsters, you need to use Light to vanquish them. You’ll also use these two types of energies to overcome various barriers.
As you progress through the game, you’ll come across large shrines where you can learn how to use new powers. Your new skills may involve learning how to use melee attacks or harness Light and Dark energies.
Pay attention to your environment because you can also collect hidden objects. Gather as many such objects as possible to unlock extras, such as enhanced in-game abilities.
You can also play with a friend in co-operative mode. If you want to play a more challenging game, enter Arcade Mode and race against time to complete your mission.
Outland has an impressive 4 out of 5 score. You should definitely test it out in December, especially since it’s free to play. Outland has a regular price tag of $9.99 on the Xbox 360 Store and Steam.
Speaking of Games with Gold, you can also play Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition for free on your Xbox One console from December 1-31.
