Xbox Game Pass adds Mortal Kombat 11, loses three Yakuza games

Xbox Game Pass is adding a few more games before 2021 ends. The December batch is headlined by Mortal Kombat 11, Among Us, and indie hit Firewatch. However, the service is also losing three Yakuza games at the end of the year.

Microsoft’s subscription service gives players access to a library of downloadable games for a flat monthly fee. It’ll add 11 new games between December 15 and 16.

The headline game this time around is Mortal Kombat 11, which will be available on cloud, PC, and console on December 16. It appears that players will only get access to the base game, not including expansions like Aftermath. The addition comes almost exactly one year after the service dropped Mortal Kombat X.

Other notable additions include indie gems Firewatch, Lake, and Broken Age, all of which come to cloud, console, and PC on December 16. They’ll join new release The Gunk and a slew of kid-friendly games like Ben 10 Power Trip on that day. Indie hit Among Us will also come to the cloud on that day.

Microsoft is also adding touch controls to 10 more games on mobile this month, including Sable and Dicey Dungeons.

Game Pass will remove some key games at the end of the month, including the first three games of the Yakuza series. Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, and Yakuza Kiwami 2 will all leave the service on December 31, alongside Pro Evolution Soccer 2021 and The Little Acre.
