December’s just around the corner, meaning we’re thankfully entering the final stretch of 2020 (surprise alien invasion or Elder God awakening notwithstanding); it also means there’s one last wheeze of effort from Xbox Games With Gold before 2021, which closes out the year with developer Double Fine’s Stacking, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, and more.
Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell – originally released as a standalone expansion for Saints Row 4 – will be available, in its Xbox 360 guise, from 1st December to 15th December, and offers a decent blast of entertainment for fans of developer Volition’s increasingly irreverent open-world series. Eurogamer called it, “very obviously a budget Saints Row adventure,” back in 2015, “[but] a likeable one, where both time and pennies have been spent wisely.”
1st December also marks the arrival of The Raven Remastered on Xbox Games With Gold, where it’ll remain available until 31st December. This one’s an Agatha-Christie-style mystery turned point-and-click-adventure, in which a bumbling Swiss police constable, Anton Jakob Zellner, becomes embroiled in a conspiracy, circa 1964, after he’s tasked with guarding an Ancient Egyptian treasure as it travels cross-country on a train.
