Outer Wilds, a time loop adventure by Mobius Digital, was one of nine Xbox Game Pass titles that will be leaving at the beginning of the new year. Microsoft’s subscription service is well-known for shuffles its games library every month. However, it did not mention the removal of these titles in its most recent Xbox blog. Scrolling down to “Leaving Soon” on the Xbox app reveals nine games that are on track to be removed from the service by January 1, 2023. This is an official announcement, as it appears in the Xbox App.
Outer Wilds is one of the most popular Game Pass titles. It features an unusual premise, where you play an unnamed space explorer trapped in a time loop. The solar system’s supernova occurs every 22 minutes. This resets the particles and planets back to their original states. This is not to be confused with The Outer Worlds , a space-set RPG that’s also available on Game Pass. Here you will explore the secrets of an extinct species and solve the mystery.
Outer Wilds received a Xbox Seriess S/X upgrade via Game Pass , enabling 60fps — and is soon to be leaving the platform.
Square Enix’s scarlet Nexus is another major title that will be leaving the service. This game allows you to use your psychokinetic abilities to fight in expert hack-and slack segments and unlock the secrets of a Brain Punk futurity. The Pedestrian was just dropped on PlayStation . It will also be leaving the PS Plus Additional and Deluxe catalogues.
Xbox launched Hello Neighbor2 earlier this month. This was a one-day launch. It allows you to go back to Raven Brooks to be an investigative journalist and spy on your neighbour. While this is a one-player experience, Secret Neighbor, a multiplayer spin-off, will be removed from Game Pass on New Year’s Day.
Xbox Game Pass will be ending support for the following nine games starting January 1, 2023.
All these games can be purchased at a 20% discount, before they are removed from Game Pass. Microsoft’s annual Xbox countdown sale runs until January 2, 2023 and offers heavy discounts on several titles. Elden Ring and Gotham Knights Deluxe Edition were the first to see discounts since their launch.
Xbox Game Pass launched 11 new additions in December. These included Hello Neighbor 2, Justin Roiland’s High On Life and a retro-styled RPG chained echoes. The popular Lego Star Wars Saga catalogue featured comedic interpretations for all nine episodes of the iconic film series. Metal, a rhythm-based demon-slaying experience that finally made it to Xbox One.
