December’s a Very Good Month to be an Xbox Game Pass Subscriber

Got an Xbox Game Pass subscription? You’ve got a lot of games to look forward to in the next two weeks.

December is the time for giving, after all, and Microsoft is getting right into the spirit by filling Game Pass with no less than sixteen new games. There’s a mixture of big hitters, indie gems and brand new titles. Something for everyone.

The first of the games land on the service tomorrow, with more titles trickling through until 10th December. We’re fairly sure we’ll still see more games in December after the 10th, too, because that’s just how Microsoft rolls.


But here’s what we can expect in the next eight days:

3rd December:
  • Control (Android and console)
  • DOOM Eternal (PC, already on console)
  • Haven (console and PC)
  • Slime Rancher (Android and console)
  • Va-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action (PC)
  • Yes, Your Grace (Android, console and PC)
4th December:
  • Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition (console and PC)
8th December:
  • Call of the Sea (Android, console and PC)
  • Monster Sanctuary (Android and console)
  • Starbound (PC)
9th December:
  • Unto the End (console and PC)
10th December:
  • Assetto Corsa (Android and console)
  • Gang Beasts (Android and console)
  • GreedFall (Android, console and PC)
  • Superhot: Mind Control Delete (Android and console)
  • Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (Android, console and PC)

On top of that, from tomorrow RAGE 2 (already available as part of Game Pass) will also be playable on Android.

And if gaming on your phone via the Cloud has become a thing for you, you’ll be pleased to know several more games are getting touch controls. From tomorrow, you won’t need a controller to play Bloodstained, Golf With Your Friends, Hyperdot, Ikenfell, Indivisible, ScourgeBringer, The Touryst or Vambrace Cold Soul.

Of course, when new games go up, old ones must come down. Ten games will be leaving Xbox Game Pass in December:

Leaving 11th December:
  • eFootball PES 2020 
Leaving 15th December:
  • Age of Wonders: Planetfall (console and PC)
  • Infinifactory (PC)
  • Metro: Last Light Redux (PC)
  • MudRunner (console and PC)
  • Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (console)
  • Pathologic 2 (console and PC)
  • The Turing Test (console and PC)
  • Ticket to Ride (console and PC)
