Xbox Live Gold members have something to look forward to in December asides from the annual discounts that will arrive around the holidays. Today the games Gold members will receive for free next month were announced. From December 1-15, gamers will be able to download the original Gears of War while the arcade title Shoot Many Robots will be available from December 16-31.
Gears of War (normally $19.99 USD) is a third person action game which requires you to make use of the cover mechanic to prevent the protagonist Marcus Fenix (or Dominic Santiago if you’re playing co-op) from being riddled with bullets as he attempts to fight through the Locust horde. Shoot Many Robots would set you back half of that, costing $9.99 USD, and is a fun-filled co-op game where up to four people can do exactly what the title suggests and shoot up a bunch of robots.
Will you be downloading either of these titles? Let us know in the comments below!
