December is almost here, so what is Microsoft giving us to play this Holiday season? Here’s everything coming to Xbox Game Pass in December 2022.

Xbox Game Pass is arguably one of the biggest reasons to own an Xbox, and yet you can play plenty of the games on the service on your phone (with Cloud Gaming) or on your PC. Ahead of the holidays, Xbox Game Pass in December is looking strong already.
