The Xbox Game Pass December games have been revealed, and at the end of 2022 we're getting a robust lineup including some big name family-friendly titles, major new releases, and some genuine indie gems.
The big surprise - though Xbox had already been tweeting teasers for it - is Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, due to hit the service on December 6. The game explores all nine films and is by pretty much any measure the biggest Lego game to date. It just launched earlier this year and makes for a substantial addition to the lineup.
There are a few indies you shouldn't sleep on, too. Eastward made waves earlier this year for its gorgeous pixel art and semi-apocalyptic adventures. Totally Reliable Delivery Service is a delightful physics sandbox in the vein of Human: Fall Flat. But I really want to highlight Potion Craft - an excellent little puzzle and management game that simulates alchemy through an extremely creative potion-brewing mechanic.
Of course, there are the day one releases too, though many of those we already knew about, including Hello Neighbor 2 on December 6, Chained Echoes on December 8, and High On Life on December 13.
