Following closely behind the PlayStation Plus reveal for next month, the Xbox Games with Gold announcement for December 2019 has also been made. As always, four games are coming to the libraries of subscribers beginning on December 1. They include Insane Robots, Jurassic World Evolution, Toy Story 3, and Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD.
Insane Robots is a card battle game with procedurally generated levels and and 15+ hour campaign. It launched in the summer of 2018 to decent reviews. It currently has a 73 average from 13 reviewers on OpenCritic. It'll be available for download for the entire month of December.
The headliner here is Jurassic World Evolution which is a simulation game from 2018 that lets players create and manage their own dinosaur parks. It earned Fair marks from 96 critics on OpenCritic, giving it an average score of 71. Its forthcoming expansion pack titled "Return to Jurassic Park" it allows players to manage a very 1993 version of the dinosaur exhibit. That will be on sale for $19.99 when it hits stores on December 10. It will be available for download from December 16-January 15.
Toy Story 3 is not one to be written off either, as it's one of the most beloved movie tie-in games ever made. Its story mode offers players the usual 3D platformer fare we used to see a lot from this genre, but it also includes a secondary mode called Toy Box, which was the predecessor to Disney Infinity's later mode of the same name. It allows players to create their own world and play various mini-games using different themes like wild west, outer space, and a haunted house. It will be available for download from December 1-December 15.
Last but not least, Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD joins the lineup. It's the latest in a long line of games from Konami's series to be offered via Games with Gold. It originally launched as an Xbox 360 game and, like Toy Story 3, is backward compatible on Xbox One. Like all the games on this list, it got decent reviews during its 2013 launch. It will be available from December 16-December 31.
