November is upon us, which means many of us are saying goodbye to spooky season. Xbox Game Pass isn't taking time off to mourn, though, as Microsoft as revealed the list of new games heading to the service in the next few weeks. This is a huge month for Xbox Game Pass, with a busy list of fantastic games that may only be rivaled by what arrives next month in December.
The highlight of this month's Xbox Game Pass entries is definitely Forza Horizon 5, which launches day-and-date into Xbox Game Pass on Nov. 9, 2021 (or Nov. 5 if you have early access). We previewed Forza Horizon 5, and concluded that this game is absolutely worth getting excited about. Minecraft is also finally joining Xbox Game Pass for PC, thanks to a new Minecraft PC Bundle, which we originally learned during Minecraft Live 2021.
That's not all, as other games like It Takes Two are also arriving on Xbox Game Pass throughout the next couple of weeks. This month's selection of titles is certainly aiming to give the current best games on Xbox Game Pass a run for their money, with some heavy hitters arriving.
The games listed here can head anywhere Xbox Game Pass is available, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. Because of the sheer volume of titles, it can be hard to keep track of all the games coming to and leaving from Xbox Game Pass.
Here are the games coming to and leaving from Xbox Game Pass in Nov. 2021.
