December’s Games With Gold Lineup Gets Cinematic

Where the November Games With Gold roster was occupied by mostly smaller indie titles, December’s lineup is kind of the opposite. The next wave of free games will be headlined by two movie-tie in games and rounded out by a card battler and a decent entry in the Castlevania series.

The first games to go up for grabs will be Insane Robots and Toy Story 3. The former is a unique card-battle game centered around the struggles of robots to throw-off the shackles of their evil robot overlords. The robot vs. robot action can also be enjoyed online in one-on-one duels. Toy Story 3 on the other hand is a standard action-adventure title loosely tied to the film that shares its name. Fans can play as their favorite toys as they explore the daycare center’s colorful landscapes.

Once mid-December hits, Jurassic World: Evolution and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD will be available for download. With Jurassic World: Evolution, fans can craft their own version of the park and attempt to do a better job than the folks at InGen. It might sound simple, but as the movies were clear to point out: exerting control on ancient life often has unintended consequences. As for Castlevania, it’s a direct sequel to the original Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and follows Trevor Belmont as he strives to bring down his now-evil father Gabriel. Unlike it’s predecessor though, this one is more of a classic metroidvania game, so don’t bother bringing any climbing gear.
