Headlining the latest Xbox Game Pass refresh is Mutant Year Zero, currently set to launch directly into the subscription service. With a slated December 4 launch, this XCOM-style turn-based adventure follows a team of mutants through a post-apocalyptic world. Rebellion's third-person shooter, Strange Brigade also debuts on December 6, while The Gardens Between made its surprise arrival on November 29. Microsoft is also promising "even more games" throughout December, likely as the holidays near.

As previously detailed, Xbox Game Pass will also loose seven titles once November concludes. Affected titles include Resident Evil 0, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Casey Powell Lacrosse 16, The Technomancer, This War of Mine: The Little Ones, and Mega Man 10.
