Microsoft has announced the final slate of games coming to PC Game Pass for January 2022. The news was nearly swallowed up by news of the Activision Blizzard acquisition. Almost, but I kept my ear glued to the ground. Earlier this month, Game Pass subscribers got their hands on some great games like Spelunky 2, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and Outer Worlds. We end the last two weeks with another promising batch. Both Rainbow Six Siege and Rainbow Six Mining head to PC Game Pass, with The gate of death and the The Hitman Trilogy.
That’s a pretty good list, all things considered. The much appreciated The gate of death comes out on January 20, but it won’t be the only one. Much like December, the vast majority of games heading to PC Game Pass this month all arrive on the same day. Next to The gate of death is the The Hitman Trilogy, Pupperazzi, Rainbow Six Mining, Rainbow Six Siege: Deluxe Edition, and Windbreaker 2. The only outlier of the group is Taiko no Tatsujin: The Drum Master, which arrives on January 27.
It should be noted that some of these games are day one releases. Rainbow Six Mining, Windbreaker 2, Pupperazzi, and the The Hitman Trilogy launch and join Game Pass on January 20. Of course, the three Hitman the games have been available for a while. But this is the official release of the collection, so it still counts. This makes.
Extras, and hiking games
With games come bonuses. Subscribers can claim benefits for three games. tank world gets a Premium Trifecta pack, while Eternal destiny comes with three cosmetic packs. And, as announced last December, Infinite Halo will receive another batch. It comes with a Pass Tense green skin for the Warthog, along with four 2XP Boosts and four Challenge Swaps. I like the green skins coming out for the game. Let them come.
But while all of that is headed to subscribers, some games are leaving. Cyber Shadow, prophet from nowhere, prison architect, and Xeno Crisis will leave Game Pass on January 31.
