Every month, a number of amazing games are added to Xbox Game Pass, but just like Netflix or any other subscription service, select titles leave. While select Yakuza games are coming to the service in 2020, some smaller experiences are leaving today. You can read about them below.
The following titles will be removed from Xbox Game Pass on November 30.

- Below for Xbox One
- Football Manager 2019 for PC

Out of all of these, we'll miss Below the most. It's an interesting top-down roguelike that features an incredible atmosphere. If you haven't played it, you should do so. Additionally, you can buy it for a discount if you want to buy it and have it in your catalog.

Ah man, now I have to buy Football Manager 2019 in order to keep access to it!
