How Long It Would Take To Beat All The Games Leaving Xbox Game Pass This Month

Since its inception over five years ago, it's been very rare that Xbox Game Pass subscribers have had the rough end of the deal. Xbox Game Pass continuously refreshes its library to ensure subscribers have access to many high-quality titles, including the Halo and Gears of War catalogs, and Forza Horizon 5 just to name a few. This month, however, gamers are losing 11 games from the service, while only getting eight new titles in return. Even more eye-opening than the number of titles leaving the service though, is what this equates to in terms of hours of gameplay. GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY Titles leaving the service this month include Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling and Final Fantasy 13, both of which offer hours of content for gamers, especially completionists seeking all the ...

King’s Fall Would Be Cooler With More Oryx – Iron Banter: This Week In Destiny 2

Just about every week brings something new to Destiny 2, whether it's story beats, new activities, or interesting new combinations of elements that let players devastate each other in the Crucible. Iron Banter is our weekly look at what's going on in the world of Destiny and a rundown of what's drawing our attention across the solar system.With a couple of weeks to spend in the King's Fall raid, it's fair to say that it's an excellent addition to Destiny 2. Though a lot of players will find King's Fall familiar from its original release back in 2015, the whole experience feels slightly tighter and cleaner.
