Final Xbox Game Pass update will remove big Xbox downloads


    Microsoft has confirmed that a number of Yakuza games will be disappearing from the Xbox Game Pass library this week.

    And for those who are fans of the series, it’s been a great time to own a subscription, as most of the best are currently available to download and play on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

    But as part of the final Xbox Game Pass update of 2021, Microsoft will be removing the following titles on December 31:

    • Pro Evolution Soccer 2021
    • The Little Acre
    • Yakuza 0
    • Yakuza Kiwami 1
    • Yakuza Kiwami 2

    So this is the final notice for anyone who has been saving these games to play – best download and start experiencing them now. It should also be noted that many other titles from the Yakuza will remain in the Xbox Game Pass library, including the most recent – Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

    And while Microsoft will be removing a number of games from Game Pass at the end of December, we also know a little about what will be replacing them.

    A number of games have been confirmed as replacing these titles listed, including the Anacrusis on January 13, as well as Pupperazi and Windjammers 2 on January 20.

    For those looking for a new shooter, the Anacrusis is a replayable, four-player, FPS set on an abandoned Spacecraft, filled with monsters.

    The full description of the gameplay explains: “Every time you play The Anacrusis, the game changes. The AI Driver controls every aspect of the game, it spawns every enemy, directs each boss, and places all the weapons, gadgets, and health kits in the game.

    “The goal is to deliver the perfect difficulty for your party’s preference, but it goes much further than that. The Driver knows how much of the story each player has experienced, so the secrets of the alien attack, and the relationships between the characters, and even more story beats unfold as you play. You’ve never experienced a co-op FPS quite like this before.”

    Microsoft also made sure to add a bumper crop of games into the Game Pass in mid-December to help cushion blow, with some of the top choices listed below with their official Xbox descriptions:

    Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth: Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is a 2D action-exploration Metroidvania-style game developed under the close supervision of original creator Ryo Mizuno, depicting the previously unknown story of Deedlit and the events leading up to Record of Lodoss War: Diadem of the Covenant. Both fans of Record of Lodoss War and all-new players alike can fully enjoy this latest instalment in the series.

    Transformers: Battlegrounds: With Earth under invasion and Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, close to capturing The Allspark, Bumblebee and the Autobots need a new commander to help them restore peace to the universe – you!

    Mortal Kombat 11: Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed franchise, providing a deeper and more personalized experience than ever before with an all-new Custom Character Variation System that gives players the creative control to customize versions of the entire character roster.
