Xbox has revealed the games that Xbox Games With Gold subscribers can look forward to in December with the final such reveal of 2021.

First up on December 1 is Team 17’s prison escape game The Escapists 2. You’ll get to team up with up to three friends as you go about your daily routine to hide suspicion as you escape from a variety of prisons. December 16 will see the addition of management sim Tropico 5. More specifically, you’ll get the Penultimate Edition that includes both The Big Cheese and Hostile Takeover add-ons.

Both of the 360 offerings are a couple of Xbox 360 favourites. Orcs Must Die! is a tower defence game with a twist, challenging you with defending your fortress from swarms of Orcs. That’ll be available between 1 – 15 December, after which time it’ll be replaced with 2D action adventure Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. You’ll be able to grab that offering between December 16 and New Year’s Eve.

You can check out a trailer for all four games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in December below. Meanwhile, you’ve still got about a week left to grab last month’s games while you still can.
