November tends to be a huge month for game releases in general, so it’s no surprise I have information about the lastest games coming to Xbox Game Pass in November 2021 already. It’s right before the holiday season so game developers are all vying for customers attention hoping to top holiday gaming charts.
A lot of bigger well known gaming studios tend to drop releases sometime in November so it also wasn’t such a shock when I learned that, arguably one of the most high profile Xbox Exclusive franchises is releasing their next installment in November. Care to take a guess as to what the game is?
No ideas? I’ll put you out of your misery, it’s Forza Horizon 5 (FH5)! Yep, you did indeed read that right. It’s coming to game pass for subscribers on the 9th November via day one release. Let’s take a look and see what else is in store for us in Nov.
Xbox Game Pass November 2021
This November I’m super excited to finally get to play FH5. Everything I’ve seen of FH5 so far has looked vastly improved compared to the last in the series. I was really impressed when I first saw footage of the gameplay. The Mexican locale look supper realistic and the graphics are jaw-dropping, the open world is said to be gargantuan!
Because it’s developed by UK based AAA game studio Playground Games I’m expecting great things. They have a pretty much 100% perfect track record of game releases, it’s safe to say that FH5 is going to be one of the top-scoring and top-performing games of the year.
Let’s take a look and see what else is in store for us in Nov.

When Will Xbox Game Pass November 2021 Games Be Announced?
Microsoft loves to drop a surprise bundle of games on members each and every month. Each month the announcement for the coming months games often come in dribs and draps. We often get the news around the first week of the month. I expect to have more news of what games are coming around the 5th November.
A couple of weeks later they’ll be further game additions revealed. They’ll also reveal information about which games are leaving the service during this time frame too.into the month. For more on Game Pass News hit the link here.
Xbox Game Pass November 21 Our Top Picks
We love a good guessing game. Our predictions tend to be more along the lines of a ‘I’d Like To See’ because there really is no guessing or predicting what will be announced. Unless you work for the Game Pass selection department there is just no way of knowing until the announcement is made.
So, here’s what I’d like to see be made available in Nov:
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
I know, I know it’s a wild stab in the dark. A pipe dream. Call it what you want, I still want it to come to Game Pass this November. And even more absurd would be some exclusive content and additional missions to complete, how good would that be?! We’ve all played GTA:SA but here’s the synopsis to bring back those memories of that damn RC Plane mission.
Returning after his mother’s murder to the semi-fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles), Carl Johnson, a former gang banger, must take back the streets for his family and friends by gaining respect and once again gaining control over the streets. However, a story filled with crime, lies and corruption will lead him to trudge the entire state of San Andreas (based on California and Nevada) to rebuild his life.
It’s got 90/100 on plenty of critic websites!
Now for a more realistic addition. Upon it’s first release most critics disliked the game but over time it’s average score has increased as more and more people give the game a chance. The issue with the game is it really is only a play once kinda game. There’s little point trying to pump 100 hours into the game as it’s become a near infinite chore to grind. The game has become a micro-transaction cess pit.
I’m adding it to my top picks because it’d be worth playing through via the game pass service if you’re a fan of the Marvel Universe. It’s most definitely not worth playing at full price. Here’s the synopsis to wet you’re appetite anyway:
Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a new, hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco. The celebration turns deadly when a mysterious enemy causes a catastrophic accident which results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, a sprawling adventure ignites when a determined young woman named Kamala Khan sets out to reassemble and rebuild the Avengers to stop the unchecked power of the secretive new force known as AIM.
