Arguably one of the best aspects of being an Xbox Live Gold member is the access to exclusive free content every month.

Xbox’s ‘Games with Gold’ Christmas special will be announced in the coming days, and Xbox One fans have the perfect way of enjoying the bonuses via the latest Christmas deals.


We don’t know precisely when this will happen, but the tech giant only has until Saturday to make the big reveal.

Fans are hoping to see a few top AAA titles included, but it’s hard to gauge what will make up the first GwG deals of the new decade.

Last month's games

The newest title on the list is Jurassic World Evolution, where players can bioengineer dinosaurs with unique appearances and traits that think and react intelligently to the world around them.

The game is likely to retail for £39.99, but you can enjoy it for free for the entirety of December.
