Xbox Game Pass is adding a ton of new games for the holiday season
You’ll have some new games to try out in no time.
Xbox constantly rotates games in and out of its Xbox Game Pass catalog. This holiday season is no different, as Microsoft plans to add several new titles in December.
Game Pass continues to be one of the best deals in gaming today. The catalog consists of more than 100 games that players can download and play anytime they want until they’re rotated out.
As we kick off December, a few new games are available on Game Pass via Xbox Cloud Gaming, console, or PC. And even more are coming in the next few weeks.
