Although Fallout 76 may not have had the smoothest launch, Bethesda has been continuously adding content and providing full support, and the game is undoubtedly in a better position now.
Hell, I spent more than 100 hours playing the game in its initial form, so I’m overjoyed to see new stuff. On December 5, Atlantic City DLC will be available for Xbox Game Pass, bringing with it a new setting to investigate as well as new factions, creatures, objectives, and rewards.

Here’s what we’ve been waiting for—more Square Enix games on Xbox—as Sarah Bond introduces Square Enix now!
I’m overjoyed to learn that Octopath Traveler 2, a game we had assumed would not be coming to the platform, will be released in 2024. I have no doubt that Octopath Traveler 2 will do exceptionally well on Xbox, as it is already available on Playstation, Nintendo Switch, and PC and was released internationally in February of this year.
It garnered positive reviews and had sold over a million copies by June 2023. Although the statement makes no mention of an Xbox system launch date, we may anticipate the game to arrive in early 2024.
11. Persona 5 Tactica
There are now announcements for Persona 5, which is, in my opinion, the Xbox Game Pass title with the highest Metacritic score. Will Persona 5 Tactica be received similarly? The next game follows the Phantom Thieves of Hearts as they are transferred to a different planet in a spin-off from the main series.
Persona 5 Tactica, the first Persona game to have a worldwide simultaneous release, will feature a grid-based combat system with summoning and fusion from the original series. On November 17, Persona 5 Tactica becomes available via Xbox Game Pass.
Palworld, a Pokemon clone developed by Craftopia, will launch on Xbox in 2024.
Palworld has been revealed to us before; in fact, it was featured in the presentation from the previous year. However, the video released today provides more details about the game by introducing new ‘Pals’ character customization choices and additional gameplay footage. I’m eager to start playing Pokemon on my Xbox system.
13. Ace Attorney
On September 26, Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy will become available on Game Pass. Players in the Ace Attorney games must present evidence and cross-examine witnesses in order to convince a jury of their positions.
The games chronicle the exploits of defense lawyer Phoenix Wright. The games are well known for their peculiar dialogue, and the Apollo Justice Trilogy will be released in early 2024.
14. Crossover Ori and Party Animals
Ori and Party Animals Crossover is indeed a powerful start.
Party Animals, a charming physics brawler to play with friends (while you beat them into jelly submission), was just added to Xbox Game Pass and is already making waves on social media.
Ori and Naru are the first new characters to join the roster. Could there be more recognizable Xbox characters added? Although I am aware that many adults are also enjoying the game, it could be a strong contender for our list of the best Xbox games for kids.
