What you need to know

  • Xbox Game Pass is a monthly game subscription service from Microsoft.
  • A lot of amazing games are leaving the service soon, quite possibly the most significant departures.
  • Batman: Return to Arkham and more titles will leave Xbox Game Pass soon.

Updated February 19, 2020: It seems like Stellaris: Console Edition has been removed from Xbox Game Pass without warning, but that may just be an error.

Xbox Game Pass is a monthly game subscription service that has garnered millions of subscribers over the past several months. It offers hundreds of games for $10 a month, and you can even bundle Xbox Live Gold with Xbox Game Pass for $15 a month.

Every month, Xbox Game Pass gets a lot of new games. However, in order to make room for those titles, older games leave the service. Today, the Xbox Game Pass app on iOS revealed that Batman: Return to Arkham, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, Just Cause 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Snake Pass are leaving soon. Aside from last month, this has to be one of the biggest exoduses because big-name games like Batman: Return to Arkham and Rise of the Tomb Raider are departing soon.

Batman: Return to Arkham

Return to Arkham and experience two of the most critically acclaimed titles of the last generation - Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, with fully remastered and updated visuals.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion presents one of the best role-playing experiences of all time. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the mysteries of the ancient world.

Fallout 3

Vault-Tec engineers have worked around the clock on an interactive reproduction of Wasteland life for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own vault. Included is an expansive world, unique combat, shockingly realistic visuals, tons of player choice, and an incredible cast of dynamic characters.

Just Cause 4

Welcome to Solís, a huge South American world home of conflict, oppression and extreme weather conditions. Just Cause 4 sees rogue agent Rico Rodriguez land in Solís to hunt down the truth about his past, at any cost.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Featuring epic, high-octane action moments set in the most beautifully hostile environments on earth, Rise of the Tomb Raider delivers a cinematic survival action adventure where you will join Lara Croft on her first tomb raiding adventure.

Snake Pass

As Noodle the snake, slither, wriggle, curl, coil and climb your way to the top of Haven Tor in this one of a kind physics-based, puzzle platform adventure from award-winning independent studio Sumo Digital.

What do you think of these departures? Do you play any of these games? Let us know. If you do play them, be sure to purchase them because Xbox Game Pass gives you a discount on titles that are part of the subscription.

  • Good thing I've decided to polish off Return to Arkham soon.
  • Damn, never even got to JC4. Knew that was coming. I didn't even know Batman was on the service.
  • Yeah, I actually decided I wanted to play through the series, I own Knight but never played it and had finished Asylum previously but I never got around to beating City on the 360, now I've got two weeks (I assume) to finish that game. And agreed on JC4, I haven't actually played any of the Just Cause games always wanted to but just never gotten around to it.
  • Drat, playing thru Batman and may not finish it now...sigh...
