Xbox’s subscription-based service, Game Pass, has gained worldwide fame since its introduction back in 2017. The service offers over hundreds of top-tier PC and Xbox games for a monthly subscription fee.
Over the years, the service has grown to include Xbox Live Gold and EA Play as well as expanding to a new frontier, cloud gaming.
As always, Xbox is bringing new games for players to try out. Let’s take a look at the upcoming games for the first half of January 2022.
