Originally Published: 

Xbox Game Pass is adding games for everyone this month — celebrated narrative adventures, anticipated new releases, and a little something for the kids.

Here are 11 more games coming to Xbox Game Pass in December 2021.

11. Among Us

(December 15, Cloud)

The 2020 smash hit Among Us launched on Game Pass for console on December 14, and it comes to the cloud one day later. Now you can betray your friends from anywhere with your phone.

10. Ben 10: Power Trip

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Power Trip is one of several kid-friendly games hitting Game Pass just before the holidays. Based on the Ben 10 cartoon, it’s a no-brainer for fans of the show.

9. Broken Age

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Double Fine’s point-and-click adventure Broken Age features an incredible voice acting cast along with the studio’s signature sense of humor and gorgeous art style.

8. Firewatch

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Firewatch’s approach to storytelling — communicating with an unseen partner via radio — made a splash in 2016, and its great story and art make it still worth playing years later.

7. The Gunk

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

From the infinitely versatile studio behind the Steamworld series, The Gunk follows a pair of space scavengers who fall headfirst into a mystery on a ruined planet. It hits Game Pass on its release day.

6. Lake

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Lake stands out simply through its slow pace and subtlety. You play as a woman who leaves her demanding job behind to spend time in a sleepy Pacific Northwest town filled with well realized characters.

5. Mortal Kombat 11

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Mortal Kombat 11 is one of the best entries ever in the classic fighting game series. It shines in solo and multiplayer modes, and it packs all the over-the-top action that made the series infamous.

4. PAW Patrol Mighty Pups Save Adventure Bay

(December 16, Could/Console/PC)

“A fallen meteor has given the pups mighty powers – and left Adventure Bay in a mighty mess,” says the press release. Superpowered cop dogs and meteor impacts. What could go wrong?

3. Race With Ryan

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Another kid’s game hitting Game Pass this month, Race with Ryan is based on the Ryan’s World YouTube channel. It’s a stripped-down, colorful racer that should be a hit with younger players.

2. Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

Based on the classic anime series, Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is a gorgeous Metroidvania game with some fun combat mechanics.

1. Transformers: Battlegrounds

(December 16, Cloud/Console/PC)

The turn-based tactics game Transformers: Battlegrounds is a good introduction to the genre for new players. Think X-Com Lite, with the bonus of getting to play as Optimus Prime.
