More Free Xbox One and Xbox 360 Games Now Available

Outlast and Burnout Paradise are now free for Xbox Live Gold members.

66 Comments

It's December 16, which means Xbox Live Gold members can now pick up more games at the low, low price of free. On Xbox One, the horror game Outlast is now free, while the Xbox 360 freebie is Criterion's excellent racing game, Burnout Paradise.

No Caption Provided

Note that Burnout Paradise, and all Xbox 360 Games With Gold games as of November 2015, are playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Even if you don't have an Xbox One, you can download the racing game and it'll be waiting for you if you buy the system.

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is free on Xbox One all month long. The new games replace Murdered: Soul Suspect (Xbox One) and Outland (Xbox 360), which were free until December 15.

In addition to free games, Xbox Live Gold members can take advantage of this week's suite of Xbox One and Xbox 360 deals--here's a roundup of all the offers.

Didn't MS tell us a few months ago that all driving games released as b/c would now be playable with xbox One wheels? I tried Burnout with my One FFB wheel and it didn't register at all. Anyone else have this problem?

Geez. I'm getting my first Xbox one S tomorrow. And this is what I'll end up with, with gold lol

No thanks. Sleeping dogs was mentioned in an article as being a sexist game. Bland female personalities, & that they weren't helpful to the story, unless he was flirting, or whatever. Yuck. No wonder I got bored of it lol

Oh Burnout! Best racing game! Definitly gonna speed my way over to this one & download! : P

Outlast was Boring. Run around & hide in closets, when you're scared. No way to fight back..from what I've played...I got bored of it, & didn't play it anymore. If you don't hide 24/7 you're dead! lol

I'm better off with Fatal Frame! At least you KILL ghosts with a special camera! You have no other skills/weapons, but don't really need to hide either!

Outlast & Sleeping dogs, seems so outdated, now that I read about this 9 year old little girl from India, who is ruling the kickboxing world! lol No rhyme or reason to make weak females in media.

I don't like games where you can't fight back. Females were never weak. They were just characters made by weak minded men that's all. So devs don't bore your crowd. There's plenty of exciting games, I could be playing where you fight back ASAP. Female, OR male!

@Faye_Tallity: Making judgements when you havn't even played the game, Sleeping Dogs is great fun.. and it's not about the female characters. Go out and buy Tomb Raider and stop ranting here.

@Faye_Tallity: My mate is Chinese and told me Sleeping dogs is rather accurate in the way it portrays the culture in a city environment. He grew up there and his uncle was chief of police.

@Faye_Tallity: I respect your opinion even though I highly disagree with it on multiple points. For one there are less women who play video games then men, so devs cater to audience. It takes place in China different culture. Not all women kick ass or want to, or want to be/force something that they are not. I do agree there are women that can, but thats the minority. God gave us more testosterone for a reason. Ahh I'm ranting needless to say there are boxer women, stripper women, hot women, ugly women, feminist, etc. World is a big diverse place don't be so judgemental it's annoying.

@Faye_Tallity:

Sleeping Dogs has an 81% on Metacritic. It seems that not many journalists found it boring at all. Also, for your claim about sexism...just so you know the game DOES take place in Hong Kong (and its sovereign state China) are not known for their liberal views on sex.

There are lots of games that don't allow you to choose a gender. If you only want to play a game where you choose your characters sex you will be missing out on many fun and unique games that are available.

Also, you read A article and believe that to be the absolute truth? I, honestly, haven't played the game, but I know better than to simply trust one opinionated source instead of reading other reviews or, I don't know, playing the game essentially for free?

@Faye_Tallity: I suggest you don't read articles about Sleeping Dogs that are written by trannies. It's a great game I bought it on release through Steam and now I have the Definitive Edition for FREE thanks to MS generous games with gold! I've never heard of something as lame as complaining of gaming boredom caused by lack of female personalities and flirting.

You liked Outlast enough to pay for it. Sounds like sour sonyplug grapes to me!

Your comments seem so outdated, Sleeping Dogs is a great game. If chicks want big roles in games then they should start making them because not many guys are interested in doing it. Your whining about it isn't going to slow sales or change a thing it may even increase sales. Make a game about a 9 year old Indian girl ruling the kickboxing world, watch how it sells.

I'd advise not bringing your feminist attitude to video-gaming. Sports and Video-games are two areas it will get a brutal reception.

You have Tomb Raider, be happy with that!

@Faye_Tallity: I don't what to tell you. Sleeping Dogs and Outlast are widely regarded are very good games. As someone who owns and completed both, IMO both are worthy of praise. Maybe you just don't like them, which is fine, but that clears a massive swath of similarly well-regarded games that you would not like either.

As for females competing with men on any physical level (be it sports or street brawls) you may have fallen victim to hallucinogens.

@theduckofdeath: That's why (s)he limited the fighting story to 9 year old's, not with actual men. Google couldn't find anything better than that to use as an example.

@me3639: According to sales charts, lots of people were buying Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. They remained in the top 10 for awhile, even with insane competition. Sounds like xbox and their gamers are doing just fine.

@leblnk: Titan fall 2 is a great example of this. Great SP game, overlooked because of Call of doody and Battlefield. Hardcore gamers should support this game. The OP doesn't know marketing is more important fpr sales than gameplay. People are sheep.

Not sure for how long, but Lost Odyssey is free for a limited time on both xbox platforms. It was not working at first on the Xbox ONE but I think i just needed to reset and fool with some options. Anyways the game is playing perfectly and my SSD has viritually eliminated the long load times. Even on the xbox 360 the load times are nothing like they were 11 years ago, and you get to play one of the finest 7 th gen rpgs games.

@zmanbarzel: I am so envious as I tried to download it for the Xbox ONE days ago but had trouble, so I simply downloaded it to my 360 slim with a usb thumbdrive. The load times are much better then discs were 10 yrs ago but I bet they are almost nothing on the xbox one. IF work and holidays and wow did not keep me so busy I would try it again for xbox one, hopefully things will calm down after Christmas and the game will still be available for free still.

I'm really enjoying Burnout Paradise. I never bought it because I can't stand most racing games - I absolutely loathe Forza - but was always curious because so many people talked so lovingly about the game. Why the hell haven't they made another one of these?

I signed up for Live and payed $1 for the month (last month's Black Friday deal) and got Burnout Paradise, Murder Soul Suspect, and Outland to keep from Games with Gold. Not a bad deal!

@Keivz_basic: Yeah, you get to keep them but, unfortunately, you can only play them as long as you're subscribed to Gold. Oh, and if you haven't already, you should snag Lost Odyssey while it's free too.

@kahluakhris: None of these games could be considered triple A. Outlast is an indie game (which was given away free on PSN during the first month the PS4 came out, by the way) and Burnout is 7 years old and a last gen game. Granted you can play it on X1, but it's not a current gen triple A game. In reality both services have given away about the same amount in terms of triple A games this gen. I agree with you to a point though. We were getting great games for the PS3 a couple of years ago; they have gone right down hill now.

@domiddian: lost oddsey was triple a Microsoft exlcusive, albeit pretty old. Not one for playing older games but this one has drawn me in great writing and I like the old school final Fantasy 9 combat etc with the graphics. Game was 4 disks back in day holy moly
