Microsoft reveals full details of this month’s stunning Xbox Game Pass lineup.

We’ve already had one new addition to Xbox Game Pass game this month by virtue of Halo Reach joining Halo: The Master Chief Collection. That’s an early Christmas gift in itself, but there are even more treats on the way to Microsoft’s game subscription service.

DeadToast Entertainment’s thrilling tale of blood, bullets and bananas, My Friend Pedro, is the pick of two new titles arriving today. We liked it quite a bit on Switch, calling it “a slick, stylish game.” If you’re a Game Pass subscriber, it’s an essential download.

The fun continues tomorrow with Greg Lobanov’s joyous musical adventure game, Wandersong, and Wiznwar’s occult pinball shooter, Demon’s Tilt.

On December 12, Konami’s eFootball PES 2020 takes to the field. Despite the franchise’s silly new moniker, there are enough improvements on the pitch to make it a worthy alternative to FIFA 20. On the same day, subscribers can also look forward to Overcooked 2!, Pathologic 2, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Let’s also take a moment to acknowledge the titles leaving Game Pass this month. Players have until December 13 to finish up Ashen, Life is Strange: Season 1, and Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Discounts are available on each game before it leaves the service.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
