What you need to know

  • Xbox has revealed some new additions to the December 2021 Game Pass lineup in a YouTube video.
  • You can expect games like Mortal Kombat 11, Lake, Firewatch, and more to join Game Pass later this month.
  • An official post from Xbox Wire is yet to go up, but the early announcement is from the Xbox On YouTube channel, run by Xbox UK.

Microsoft revealed the December 2021 Game Pass lineup of games earlier this month. We know that everyone has already grabbed Halo Infninite's campaign and were probably looking forward to adding Among Us and Aliens: Fireteam Elite to their library later this month, but the Xbox On YouTube channel, run by Xbox UK, dropped even more announcements on Monday.

According to this trailer from Microsoft, these are the new games you can expect to be added to Game Pass for Xbox, PC, and Cloud later this month with their respective release dates.

  • Lake (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Firewatch (Cloud, Console, and PC) -Dec. 16
  • Broken Age (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Ben 10: Power Trip (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Mortal Kombat 11 (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • The Gunk (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Race with Ryan (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Paw Patrol: Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16
  • Transformers: Battlegrounds (Cloud, Console, and PC) - Dec. 16

We should expect an official update from Microsoft to follow later, but the mid-month additions are a great mix of games. We previously did cover Mortal Kombat 11 being teased for Game Pass and it's good to see that become a reality.
