Microsoft has confirmed that a number of Yakuza games will drop from the Xbox Game Pass library this week.
And for those who are fans of the series, this was a great time to own a membership, as most of the best are currently available for download and play on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
But as part of the last Xbox Game Pass update of 2021, Microsoft will be phasing out the following titles on December 31:
- Pro Evolution Soccer 2021
- The little acre
- Yakuza 0
- Yakuza Kiwami 1
- Yakuza Kiwami 2
So this is the final advice for anyone who has saved these games to play – it’s best to download them and start exploring now. Also note that many other titles from Yakuza will remain in the Xbox Game Pass library, including the most recent – Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
And while Microsoft will be removing a number of games from Game Pass at the end of December, we also know a bit about what will replace them.
A number of games have been confirmed to replace these listed titles, including Anacrusis on January 13, as well as Pupperazi and Windjammers 2 on January 20.
For those looking for a new shooter, the Anacrusis is a replayable four-player FPS set on an abandoned spaceship, filled with monsters.
The full gameplay description explains, “Every time you play The Anacrusis the game changes. The AI pilot controls all aspects of the game, he spawns every enemy, rules every boss, and places all weapons, gadgets, and health kits in the game.
“The goal is to offer the perfect difficulty according to the preferences of your group, but it goes much further than that. The driver knows which part of the story each player went through, so the secrets of the alien attack, the relationships between the characters and even more rhythms of the story unfold as you play. You’ve never experienced a cooperative FPS like this before.
Microsoft also made sure to add a bumper crop of games to Game Pass in mid-December to help cushion the blow, with some of the top picks listed below along with their official Xbox descriptions:
