Microsoft has unveiled the latest games to be offered for free as part of Games with Gold for December and it’s not very… Christmassy.

Can you hear it? It’s the sound of the Jingle Bells ringing, Christmas is almost here, the Coke advert is playing on TV, the Holidays are Comin’ so why not settle down with some eggnog and blast off to outer space to solve some puzzles! Wait, what?

Games with Gold for December have been announced and there’s nary an elf in sight as players will first find themselves stranded on a remote planet with plenty of puzzles to solve in Q.U.B.E. 2. Though if being a stranded space scientist isn’t your thing, how about being whisked away to the Arctic to experience traditional lore of the Iñupiat people in Never Alone.

You never know, you might find Santa (spoiler, you won’t). Q.U.B.E. 2 is available throughout December whereas Never Alone will be available from December 15 through to January 15.

As for Xbox 360 (and Xbox One Backwards Compatible) from December 1 through to December 15 players can enter the mystical world of Dragon Age 2 which, on December 16 will be switched out for Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction – because nothing screams Christmas quite like blowing things up in tanks with Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction.
