Xbox Live’s Games With Gold series will close out 2017 with the multiplayer team-up action of Warhammer: End Times — Vermintide and Telltale Games’ sequel to the Back to the Future trilogy.

Xbox One gets Warhammer: End Times — Vermintide for the whole month. From Dec. 16 to Jan. 15, Xbox Live Gold subscribers get Telltale’s Back to the Future: The Game — 30th Anniversary Edition, comprising all five episodes of the series that originally launched in 2010 and 2011.

For Xbox 360 — and these games are compatible with Xbox One — the offerings are Child of Eden, the trippy rhythm action game from Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, and Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death, a hack-and-slash adventure for Xbox 360 from 2013.

Child of Eden will be available from Dec. 1 to Dec. 15, and Marlow Briggs from Dec. 16 to Dec. 31.

Meantime, the Games With Gold offerings for November are still active. Xbox Live went with Telltale this month for another five-episode series, Tales From The Borderlands, that is available free to subscribers until Dec. 15.
