The Xbox Game Pass November lineup includes It Takes Two, GTA San Andreas, and Minecraft for PC, with the upcoming racer Forza Horizon 5 also being added to the subscription service at launch.

Forza Horizon 5 is easily the biggest addition of the month – a game so powerful it turned our own Josh West into Count Driftula in his hands-on Forza Horizon 5 preview. It'll be available to Game Pass subscribers on PC, console, and cloud gaming platforms at launch on November 9. 

Minecraft PC will kick things off a little earlier tomorrow, November 2, with Game Pass support for the Java and Bedrock editions of the game. This version of the sandbox game will support cross-play with all other versions, including consoles and mobile. 

November 4, meanwhile, will see the release of co-op triumph It Takes Two for console, PC, and cloud Game Pass users. As our own Sam Loveridge said in her It Takes Two review, Hazelight's latest is a beautiful and heartfelt adventure that constantly builds on inventive two-player mechanics, delivering one of the most memorable and unique experiences of the year. 

To round things out, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition is coming to Game Pass for console players on November 11, on the heels of the newly announced VR version of the storied open-world game. 

Here's how the rest of the Xbox Game Pass November games line up:

  • Unpacking (PC, console, cloud) – November 2
  • Kill It with Fire (PC, console, cloud) – November 4
  • Football Manager 2022 (PC) – November 9 
  • Football Manager 2022: Xbox Edition (PC, console, cloud) – November 9
  • One Step from Eden (PC, console) – November 11 

The Forza Horizon 5 file size has been set at 100GB as pre-loads begin.
