The Xbox community can expect big drops on the Xbox Game Pass for the rest of the year.
There’s been a lot of various announcements and achievements unlocked for Xbox this year. The major one is coming this November, marking 20 years since the green “X” became a gaming staple in many homes. This past year, they acquired Bethesda, have been holding many successful previews with Halo fans for Halo Infinite and their hit-pirate adventure game Sea of Thieves now has over 25 million players sailing away on their servers—they have even leaned in from the fans’ comments coming up with the Xbox Series X Mini Fridge.
Today, they revealed the massive game titles coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next few months, especially for PC. Age of Empires IV will be launching October 28 this year on Steam and Game Pass for PC with no delay, all on the first day. Minecraft will be coming to Game Pass for PC on November 2, then Minecraft Dungeons Seasonal Adventures will be bringing all-new content in December and ending off the year with the anticipated Caves & Cliffs: Part II. It’s going to be a great time to see the Minecraft world get these huge revamps over the next few months.
The world of Forza is also getting some love as Forza Horizon 5 will be released on November 9 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows PC and Steam, and Game Pass including console, PC and Cloud Gaming (Beta). This means players have more options to keep the race going, whether it’s in the comfort of their living room, bedroom or on-the-go. The iconic flying game, Microsoft Flight Simulator: Game of the Year Edition is taking off the runway November 18 with an immediate, free update for players who already have the original version of the game, the GOTY version and Game Pass members. Players can expect many of their aerospace suggestions fulfilled with Microsoft Flight Simulator’s newest edition.
And just in time for the holiday season, Halo Infinite drops on December 8 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC as part of Xbox Game Pass. The Halo series has been the number one staple of the Xbox and the gaming community, so fans can always expect some extra special treatment. Game Pass Ultimate members will be getting a little more appreciation with exclusive monthly multiplayer bonuses.
Xbox implores the community and fans to view the 20th Anniversary stream on November 15, which will reminisce about the great history and accolades of Xbox and Halo. They have stated there won’t be any new game announcements but are expecting to preview some of the big things that may happen in the decades to come.
