Worms Battlegrounds and The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief are now available to download for free on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

December, it's here, today! So, we're now onto a new set of free Games with Gold on Xbox One and Xbox 360. We gave you the heads up a few days ago about what you'll be able to download this month, and those games are Worms Battlegrounds, The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief, and SSX.

Ok, so first up we have Worms Battlegrounds on Xbox One. This comes in to replace Chariot which has been available for free over the past 2 months. However, Volgarr the Viking is still free from last month, so definitely download that if you haven't already.

Worms Battlegrounds looks like it's pretty much the same game I used to play back in 1995, but with obvious graphical improvements. The description I have of the game here says it's 'an artillery strategy game', which I guess is a good way to describe it. Players control a team of worms on a battlefield and take turns to fire shots at the enemy players' worms using an arsenal of 65 different weapons. Check out the trailer below, it'll give you an idea of what you'll be getting up to.

Xbox 360 owners can download The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief right now. I don't recall ever hearing about this game, but it appears to have been given great reviews. The game is a crime adventure set over three chapters. It's about a master thief, called The Raven, believe it or not, and will see players looking at the mystery from both sides of the story to hunt Raven down. Here's the trailer.

SSX is the second free game on Xbox 360 this month, so when it replaces The Raven on 16th December, we'll bring you more info and a reminder then. Enjoy your free games!
