Xbox Game Pass is flexing hard this December, with a bundle of worthy new additions arriving on the subscription platform shortly, including several new releases. Headlining the new pack is Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, a brilliant adaptation of the entire Star Wars nonology, and it’s joined by Squanch Games’ High on Life, the highly-anticipated Hello Neighbor 2, recent hit Eastward, and a range of other adventures.

There are also smaller gems, in the form of alchemy simulator Potion Craft, and Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan, a colourful action platformer inspired by cartoons.

Given more people will have free time over the holiday period, having a stacked December makes sense. More free time means more time for games – and there are certainly plenty of options to keep everyone entertained over the Christmas break.
