Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s crown jewel in terms of subscription services, is gearing up to welcome a new wave of games this month. As the autumn spirit settles in and we approach Halloween festivities, players will have access to new and exciting titles, while others, unfortunately, will bid farewell to the service. Here’s everything you need to know.
Upcoming Additions to the Catalog
Like a Dragon: Ishin! has kicked things off as the first game to be added this month and is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated titles of the year. However, there are seven other games that will join, guaranteeing hours of entertainment:
- F1 Manager 2023 (Available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming) – Release date: October 19.
- Cities: Skylines II (Exclusive for PC) – This title will allow players to design and manage their ideal metropolis, available from October 24.

Farewells from Xbox Game Pass
As usual, some games will say goodbye to the Game Pass this month. While the list isn’t extensive, it’s an opportunity to take advantage and play them before they leave on October 31. Players can also consider purchasing these games with a 20% discount. The titles leaving the service are:

All available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
