Power with Xbox Game Pass in early December.
Not too long ago, we pointed out again that the Games With Gold program has run into trouble on Microsoft’s side, implying that it won’t take advantage of the Christmas period to make a nice present. Clearly Microsoft, much more focused on its flagship offering, makes up for it in early December with a rather powerful Xbox Game Pass. And in fact, these are eleven games that will become available over the next few days.
– East (on consoles, PC and cloud): And it all starts with a very high quality game. Because it’s obvious that under a beautifully crafted pixelated aesthetic, Eastward offers an adventure in a world where civilization is on the verge of extinction due to miasma. But we need heroes. And you will be alone. Necessarily…
– The Walking Dead: The Final Season (on consoles, PC and cloud): we will not be introducing The Walking Dead, the title that launched a wave of – now extinct – Telltale-style games. But if you’ve ever waited for a good opportunity to know that this is the end, then it’s finally here.
– Fully Reliable Delivery Service (on PC): Nowadays, being a delivery man or postman is more difficult than ever at a time when packages are piling up. Luckily, there’s TRDS to pass it off as a fun game where you have to tame the laws of physics while delivering packages. Finally trying…
From December 6th:
– LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (on consoles, PC and cloud): After many delays, this latest installment of the Star Wars saga in LEGO has finally seen the light of day. And, as you might expect, the latter is a cannibal in content, mixing the habits of the series and a giant open world. Hours of construction and play await you. Hours of fun games, as we explained in our test.
– Hello Neighbor 2 (on consoles, PC and in the cloud): Again and again, the Hello Neighbor license continues to spread its wings. And on December 6, it will be a new opus that will again mix the “terrifying” experience with infiltrating this neighbor’s company like no other. And suddenly it will be the first day of a Microsoft subscription.
From December 8:
– Chained Echoes (Console, PC, and Cloud): Like Hello Neighbor 2, it will also be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one. And on occasion, it’s about immersive RPG with 16-bit aesthetics. A turn-based RPG where exploration of the Valandis continent in order to end the war between the three kingdoms will be the task of a group of heroes that we will embody.
– Metal: Hellsinger (on Xbox One): having drawn ire on other mediums, The Outsiders title offers an enjoyable (and above all brutal) combination of high-energy FPS and musical experience on the old Xbox One.
From December 13:
– High On Life (on consoles, PC and in the cloud): if there are many games to integrate Xbox Game Pass in early December, this is probably the one that crystallizes the biggest expectations. An FPS dive into the delusional world created by Justin Roiland, one of the creators of Rick and Morty, High On Life really promises to be a great delusion. Talking weapons, a threatened world that wants to turn people into drugs, dumb enemies, and the promise of a great adventure cradled by the cogs of Metroidvania… it’s hard not to be curious.
– Potion Craft (Console and PC): While High On Life’s enemies want to turn humanity into drugs, Potion Craft is also about alchemy. Good, real alchemy or almost like it will go along the way inventing potions and trying to make the most of your experiments.
– Hot Wheels Unleashed – Game of the Year Edition (Console, PC and Cloud): As Christmas approaches, it’s becoming clear that small cars will be encroaching on the feet of Christmas trees around the world. But in this video game, small cars can also be manipulated, which have a very good rating in the Mario Kart world. So, if Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and its new tracks bore you or don’t give you pleasure, Hot Wheels Unleashed can help.
From December 15:
– Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan (on consoles, PC and cloud): Finally, to end this big December selection with Xbox Game Pass, it’s about diving into the colorful and crazy universe of Rainbow Billy, a 2.5D adventure game that combines in itself action, puzzle and platformer, with multiple RPG wheels.
As for the departure, as it is necessary to balance the arrival, Xbox Game Pass will see 11 games depart in the opposite direction on December 15:
– Aliens: Fireteam Elite (Console, PC and Cloud)
– Breathedge (on consoles, PC and in the cloud)
– Dragon Quest XI: Destiny Fighters (Console, PC and Cloud)
– Firewatch (on consoles, PC and in the cloud)
– Lake (Console, PC and Cloud)
– One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 (Console, PC and Cloud)
– Neoverse (on consoles and in the cloud)
– Race with Ryan (Console, PC and Cloud)
– Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth (Console, PC and Cloud)
– Rory McIlroy PGA Tour (on consoles)
– Transformers: Battlegrounds (Console, PC and Cloud)
Well, you know all about Xbox Game Pass who will be very active during the first 15 days of December and who has just confirmed thatin January he will host Monster Hunter Rise.
