Microsoft has announced the next set of Games with Gold titles, all of which will be free to download if you have an Xbox Live Gold account.

To be honest they’re not exactly household names, but Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide is a very good co-op shooter. Although it has you fighting ratmen instead of zombies, the action is very similar to the Left 4 Dead series and a lot of fun.

Vermintide is available all December, but Telltale Games’ Back To The Future series only between December 16 and January 15. It includes all five episodes, but like most of Telltale’s film licences it doesn’t represent their best work.

The voice actor does manage a fantastic impersonation of a young Michael J. Fox though.

The best game of the month is Xbox 360 game Child Of Eden, the spiritual sequel to Rez and a grossly overlooked mix of on-rails shooter and rhythm action game.

Tongue in cheek action game Marlow Briggs And The Mask of Death is even more obscure, but well… at least it’s free.

Child Of Eden will be available until December 15, while Marlow Briggs will be is scheduled for December 16 to 31.

Both Xbox 360 games are also backwards compatible on the Xbox One.
