Stardew Valley is coming to Xbox Game Pass, so you have no excuse not to try it


Stardew Valley Game Pass is a perfect Christmas present

There are probably dozens of you out there who haven’t played Stardew Valley yet. Dozens! Well maybe some of you can enjoy the Stardew Valley Game Pass festivities as of tomorrow.

Confirmed this morning, Microsoft has announced the December offerings for Xbox Game Pass, and it’s looking like a good month. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is one of the bigger offerings, set to arrive on December 2 on console and PC. Stardew Valley also launches on that same date on cloud, console, and PC platforms. It’s one of my all-time favorite “winter break” games: it’s easy to get sucked in, especially if you’re playing multiplayer with friends or family.

On December 8 we have a wizard of a day with Halo Infinite, one of the bigger games this year on top of being an included Game Pass title. One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 is injected in on December 9 for a little variety, then we have Aliens: Fireteam Elite and Among Us on December 14.

There’s going to be plenty to play this month, straddling multiple genres. I’m liking the list.
