titles expected for December 2021

That’s it, the month of December is finally coming to an end, with not only the arrival of winter, but also end-of-year festivities … And also, inevitably, a new arrival of games within the catalog of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Big program on the horizon for the subscription service available on Xbox consoles, PCs and cloud gaming.

Here are the games expected for December 2021:

  • ANVIL (Console & PC) – December 2
  • Archvale (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 2
  • Final Fantasy XIII-2 (Console & PC) – December 2
  • Lawn Mowing Simulator (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 2
  • Rubber Bandits (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 2
  • Stardew Valley (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 2
  • Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 2
  • Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 7
  • Halo Infinite (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 8
  • One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 9
  • Aliens: Fireteam Elite (Cloud, Console & PC) – December 14
  • Among Us (Console) – December 14

Halo and the others

Obviously, the outing not to be missed this early December is Halo Infinite, the latest installment of the 343 Industries franchise. Master Chief returns more than 5 years after the release of the last canonical game Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One. We will not repeat the communication cycle of the Microsoft marketing team, but we remind you if necessary that this new game relies heavily on its progress in open mode, a first for the franchise which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

The traitor among us

Other arrivals are drawing attention from this large list. Japanese game enthusiasts will be able to satisfy themselves with two very different genres: the JRPG Final Fantasy XIII-2, which took advantage of a recent FPS Boost update, and the beat’em’all One Piece Pirate Warriors 4. We will also find the cooperative shooter Aliens: Fireteam Elite, whose arrival in Xbox Game Pass was reported yesterday on your favorite site. Finally, two indie hits are sure to be talked about in the coming weeks: Stardew Valley and Among Us.

Finally, do not forget to list the next upcoming departures from the catalog. 6 games will leave the service as of December 15, with among them the very good metroidvania Guacamelee! 2 that cannot be highly recommended.

  • Beholder (Cloud & Console)
  • The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan (Console & PC)
  • Guacamelee! 2 (Cloud, Console & PC)
  • Wilmot’s Warehouse (Cloud, Console & PC)
  • Unto The End (Cloud, Console & PC PC)
  • Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (Cloud, Console & PC)
