Microsoft’s subscription service is about to add a whole host of new titles, including Halo Infinite. Here’s everything coming to Xbox Game Pass in December.

Microsoft’s monthly subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, is fast becoming a prerequisite for any Xbox owner – or anyone with a gaming PC. The service adds a series of games to subscribers’ libraries on console, PC, and even mobile with Microsoft Cloud Gaming.

While November saw Forza Horizon 5, Football Manager 2022, and even the remastered GTA San Andreas, Xbox Game Pass’ December lineup is headlined by Master Chief himself with Halo Infinite.
