New Arrivals and Departures Shake Up Xbox Game Pass This Month
Xbox Game Pass subscribers are in for a fresh slate of gaming experiences this month as the service rolls out new additions to its library. Today marks the official launch of the charming life and farming simulator, Coral Island, out of early access and ready to captivate players. Those owning an Xbox Series X|S, or fans of Xbox Cloud Gaming, can now start their agrarian adventures, make friends with local residents, take care of farm animals, and commit to a noble cause: rejuvenating the town and its surrounding coral reefs.
Game Pass members who lean towards strategic gameplay can now navigate the intricacies of Dune: Spice Wars, accessible through PC Game Pass. The game, which arrived back in September and earned a modest three stars out of five from TRG's Cat Bussell, is also scheduled to hit console Game Pass and cloud gaming come November 28. Bussell commended the game for its true-to-source representation of the Dune universe and solid strategic gameplay foundation.
For those who prefer the thrill of action, Rollerdrome presents a fusion of style and gunplay. Developed by Roll7 and released last year, this third-person shooter known for its seamless movement and dynamic fights will join console and PC Game Pass, in addition to being available on Xbox cloud gaming starting November 28.
Xbox Game Pass does not forget about RPG enthusiasts, either. Persona 5 Royal fans will be delighted to find Persona 5 Tactica making its day-one debut on Game Pass on November 17. The strategic RPG throws familiar faces, like Joker, Ryuji, Ann, and Makoto, into a new battleground that's accessible via PC, Xbox Series X|S, and cloud gaming.
However, as new games breezily enter, several titles are gearing up to part ways with Xbox Game Pass and EA Play at the end of the month. November 30 will see the departure of Battlefield titles—Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 1943 (console-only version), and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (from both consoles and PC) from EA Play's roster. Moreover, racing enthusiasts will bid farewell to the console version of Grid on EA Play. Game Pass will also lose Disc Room, Eastward, and Anvil across its cloud, console, and PC offerings. The ever-evolving Game Pass continues to offer diverse gaming experiences while adjusting its library to keep things fresh for subscribers.
