Xbox Game Pass November 2023 Wave 2 Is Looking Pretty Slim

If you're an Xbox Game Pass member, the back half of November is looking pretty barren for you.

Xbox has announced the titles arriving as part of the Xbox Game Pass November 2023 wave 2 lineup, and...well, it's slim pickings for the rest of the month.

Only four games are heading to the service as part of this second wave, so now might be a good time to start thinking about revisiting your Game Pass backlog.

With that said, the games coming to Game Pass in the back half of November are pretty solid, starting with Coral Island, which is available now for Xbox Series X|S and cloud gaming.

Coral Island should bring back some fond memories of Harvest Moon (or Story of Seasons, as it's now known).

Your second Game Pass game for the second half of this month is Persona 5 Tactica, a strategy RPG starring the cast of beloved JRPG Persona 5

Since Persona 5 Royal departed Xbox Game Pass last month, this should hopefully give you your Phantom Thieves fix. It's coming to the service on November 17th for PC, consoles, and cloud.

Dune: Spice Wars is hitting Game Pass next; it's coming to consoles and cloud on November 28th, having enjoyed its 1.0 release in September this year.

Finally, as was revealed last month, rollerskating shooter Rollerdrome is also set to arrive on Game Pass this month. It's coming on November 28th for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and cloud.

Of course, some games must also unfortunately depart the service this month, so here's everything that's leaving Xbox Game Pass on November 30th.

  • Anvil
  • Battlefield 1943 (EA Play)
  • Battlefield: Bad Company (EA Play)
  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (EA Play)
  • Disc Room
  • Eastward
  • Grid (EA Play)

Xbox Game Pass is available right now on PC and Xbox consoles. If you're unfamiliar, it's a subscription service that grants access to a sizable library of games for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Recently, Microsoft also unveiled Xbox Game Pass Core, a replacement for Xbox Live Gold that includes a "core" offering of Game Pass titles.
