The Division, My Friend Pedro, and More Come to Xbox Game Pass for Console This Month
Xbox Game Pass for Consoles adds several new titles this December including My Friend Pedro, The Division, PES 2020, Overcooked! 2, and more.
Xbox Game Pass has quickly become one of the best deals in gaming. For a small monthly fee, players get access to tons of great games on either Xbox One or PC. Today, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One version of the service is about to get even better. Halo: Reach just jumped on Game Pass yesterday, but a few more stellar titles will be joining it very soon. Check out the full list below.
Headlining the early December releases is My Friend Pedro. This was announced back at X019, so we’ve known it was coming for a while, but it’s still cool to see Deadtoast’s excellent shoot ’em up come to the service. Xbox One gamers are also getting access to Tom Clancy’s The Division. Obviously, you’d love for them to get The Division 2 with it being the newer game, but this release will hopefully inject some new life into that online community.
Other games on the docket include PES 2020, Pathologic 2, and Overcooked! 2. This year’s PES blows FIFA 20 out of the water in the gameplay department, which means you’re getting the best soccer game on the market. Pathologic 2 is one of the weirdest games I’ve ever played, but it’s worth jumping into just to see how ambitious the team at Ice-Pick Lodge is. You probably won’t have fun, which is exactly what the team wants. And, of course, Overcooked is one of the best party games ever made, making it a great addition with the holiday fast approaching. Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, Demon’s Tilt, and Wandersong round out the lineup for these early December releases.
It’s pretty incredible how much value Microsoft has added to its services with Game Pass. This continues to feel like one of the things that could sway the public’s opinion on the company as we near the next console generation. If they can use this in combination with some nifty new features the way Sony did at the start of this generation, they might be able to turn the tide back in their favor.
