Wave 2 of November’s Xbox Game Pass Games Announced

As we march on through the month of November, Xbox Game Pass has even more great value for you! Check out the latest incoming (and outgoing) games.

We usually only cover the Games With Gold releases each month. However, as the Xbox Game Pass is structured in a similar way [and considering Games With Gold is increasingly being looked at as an after-thought], we thought we should look at doing a monthly Game Pass games release schedule…thing as well.

As we stated in our previous Game Pass Games article, there’s been more games announced as coming to the Game Pass. I know, I know. Even more bang for your proverbial.
