Microsoft‘s subscription service gets more games, and the Bethesda acquisition has results already.
According to their website, the Game Pass gets another big update. On December 11, Morkredd was already added (on console – Xbox Series, Xbox One – Android, and PC, as an indie, [email protected] title), but there will be bigger fish than that. On December 15, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (Android, console) joins the system… but not on PC.
On December 17, the Game Pass gets Among Us (PC, [email protected]), Beholder: Complete Edition (Android, console, [email protected]), Code Vein (Android, console), The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan (PC), Monster Train (Console, [email protected]), MotoGP 20 (Android, console, PC), My Friend Pedro (Android, [email protected]), Neoverse (Android, console, [email protected]), and Wilmot’s Warehouse (console, PC, [email protected]).

They are Farming Simulator 17 (console, PC), Football Manager 2020 (PC), and Mortal Kombat X (console).
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can play these games from the cloud: Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition, Haven, Phogs!.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks need to be mentioned: „Don’t forget to claim your Perks by going to the Perks gallery on your Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or Xbox One consoles, Xbox App on Windows 10 PC, or the Xbox Game Pass mobile app on iOS and Android!”, Microsoft says. There’s also Phantasy Star Online 2 – Episode 6 Update Bonus, too. „As a holiday bonus for December, we are doubling the points you can earn from Ultimate Quests for EA Play and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S optimized titles. Don’t worry, you can still earn the double points playing on an Xbox One console too!”, Microsoft added.
A big update before Christmas indeed.
