The Xbox Game Pass lineup for November 2021 is its best yet

Microsoft continues to double down on its subscription service, adding a lineup of big titles to Xbox Game Pass for November 2021.


It doesn't take an expert to tell that the Xbox Game Pass brings incredible value to gamers. Even the basic subscription service gives players a wide range of titles, including new ones that arrive every month. Xbox Game Pass' value skyrocketed even further when Microsoft announced at E3 2021 that a handful of big titles were going to be available on the Xbox Game Pass at launch.

It Takes Two has to be one of the most welcome surprises in recent years.

While we've already seen some big games launch on the Xbox Game Pass over these past few months, November is perhaps the first time that audiences will really feel Microsoft's investment.

Xbox Game Pass becomes even more of a bargain after November 2021

Forza Horizon 5 is just the start for bigger games to come to Xbox Game Pass.

November was always going to stand out for Xbox Game Pass subscribers because of Forza Horizon 5. The latest game in Playground Games' fan-favorite racing sim is already available for pre-load ahead of its November 5 launch on multiple platforms, including the Xbox Game Pass. However, Microsoft made sure to drive the point home by adding even more games to the Xbox Game Pass library for November 2021.

One of the biggest surprises is the arrival of Minecraft: Java and Bedrock Editions on the PC. Meanwhile, Microsoft also secured one of the best co-op games ever, It Takes Two, for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers via EA Play. Another addition to the already expansive Xbox Game Pass library this November 2021 is the remastered version of GTA San Andreas, which Rockstar confirmed last week.

If you think that's all, then you're sadly mistaken. Microsoft is also going to give Xbox Game Pass subscribers a chance to play Football Manager on both Xbox consoles and the PC, as well as One Step from Eden, among several others.

Here is a complete list of all the Xbox Game Pass games for November 2021 and their release dates:

  • Minecraft: Java and Bedrock Editions (PC) - November 2

  • It Takes Two (cloud, console, and PC) - November 4

Mind you, this is just the start. December is about to get just as good as well, with Halo Infinite launching on the Xbox Game Pass. If this keeps up, Sony's own subscription services will only continue to lag behind.

Speaking of Sony, Microsoft's main competition just revealed its PS Plus games for November 2021, as well as incoming PS Now titles.
