Microsoft’s addition of such big titles comes at the right time as Sony’s PlayStation Plus December monthly games are being criticised. Microsoft has dropped the renowned Remnant series and now, unveiled Far Cry 6 alongside Rise of the Tomb Rider. It is a great way to end the year for Xbox and this year has gone great for it indeed with the release of Starfield, Ghostwire, Cocoon, Forza Motorsport, and many more titles. However, We also should not forget the coming Game Awards 2023 where you can expect more interesting announcements from the publisher.
With Xbox making such implementations to its Game Pass, we can expect the PlayStation Plus Game Catalogue for December to be more huge and appealing to its users.
