It’s the middle of the month, that means it’s time to go over what games will be departing Xbox Game Pass by the end. Just two Xbox One games are leaving, but of the Xbox 360 titles leaving, two are Star Wars games.
Xbox Game Pass’ library of more than 200 titles is not permanent; they come and go according to whatever agreement Microsoft has reached with the games’ publishers. For subscribers who want to continue their adventures after the titles are removed, Xbox Game Pass offers discounts of up to 20 percent off their Xbox Store price, but only until the end of the month.
• Star Wars: The Force Unleaded and The Force Unleaded 2 (both regularly $19.99) — These two games, launching in 2008 and 2010, are the last Star Wars games developed by LucasArts. Everything LA was involved in after that was mainly a licensing agreement (The Old Republic, various Lego titles, Angry Birds, and the unforgettable Kinect Star Wars by Terminal Reality).
Star Wars: STFU 2 was a darker and less favorably reviewed take on Starkiller, whose story got stripped out of the canon when Disney bought everything up in 2012. Still, like the first game, choosing the Dark Side at the end plunged you into some tasty DLC expansions that revisited key moments of Return of the Jedi. These two games had been on Xbox Game Pass since June 2018.
• Comic Jumper ($14.99) and Ms. Splosion Man ($9.99) — Both of these Twisted Pixel joints had been with Game Pass since its debut in May 2017.
• Mega Man Legacy Collection (currently $6) — Dating back to 2015, this anthology comprises the first six games of the Mega Man series . It had been on Xbox Game Pass since May 2018,
• MotoGP 17 ($39.99) — The officially licensed game for Grand Prix motorcycle racing, it had been with Game Pass since May 2018.
There are 231 titles currently in the Xbox Game Pass library; a subscription is $9.99 a month.
