Xbox Games With Gold December Leaked Titles Ranked

4. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

(Available from December 16th to 31st)

  • Release Date: 3 August 2011
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox 360

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a 2D shooter puzzle created by Shadow Planet Productions. This title features some really interesting graphics with a dark aesthetic made by Michel Gagné.

Although on a surface level, this game may seem simplistic and even lacklustre, after some time you can really appreciate how entertaining the title is despite not containing such a shock factor as modern titles.

3. The Escapists 2

(Available from December 1st to 31st)

  • Release Date: 22 August 2017
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch

The Escapists 2 is a role-playing strategy game developed by Mouldy Toof Studios. This title is the sequel of the original The Escapists.

2. Orcs Must Die!

(Available from December 1st to 15th)

  • Release Date: 5 October 2011
  • Platforms: PC, Xbox 360

Orcs Must Die! is an old-school popular tower defence variant title in which the player has to slay hordes of orcs, as well as other creatures in a variety of levels.

For its time, this game was extremely pleasing graphics-wise, bright and colourful as well as being 3D, it’s definitely a classic on one I hold in high regard.

1. Tropico 5 Penultimate Edition

(Available from December 16th to January 15th)

  • Release Date: 23 May 2014
  • Platforms: PC

Tropico 5 is a management game, one which has been extremely successful with multiple titles released under the franchise.

Tropico 5 in particular was the first of the series to allow multiplayer gameplay, allowing players to either work with friends or go against them.

Building sims in general are are a win-win in my book, giving Tropico 5 the top spot.

Gemma (She/Her) has been gaming since she was able to hold a controller and button smash, now she does a little less smashing, more thinking in games like Apex Legends, Dead by Daylight, New World and more. When she isn't gaming she can be found cocooned in blankets whilst bingewatching anime, she's likely watching shoujo and on the edge of tears.
