Microsoft has revealed some of the games they’ll be adding to Xbox Game Pass in November, and it’s a pretty solid lineup. Highlights include tactical shooter Sniper Elite 4, arcade skateboarding game OlliOlli2, and new-release car combat game GRIP. Check out official Microsoft descriptions of all the November Xbox Game Pass titles, below:
GRIP: Combat Racing (November 6)
The return of hardcore combat racing is here and the stakes are higher than ever before. GRIP: Combat Racing is packed with content.

Sniper Elite 4
Combining complex ballistics, stealth gameplay, and third-person action, Sniper Elite 4 is the latest entry of this World War 2 combat series. This time featuring some of the largest and most diverse environments to navigate than ever before as you’re tasked to liberate wartime Italy from the iron grip of fascism.
OlliOlli2 XL Edition
Achieve new levels of control and expression as you skate, trick, and grind through 100 different levels with a new expanded combo system including Manuals, Reverts, Revert-Manuals, and Grind-Switching. Take on friends in Combo-Rush, a local-multiplayer mode for 2-4 players or when it’s time to chill, Free-Skate mode offers extended levels to learn the ropes, nail those tricks, or simply cruise and flow.
Times are hard after an apocalypse, and your family will need all the comfort they can get to help them survive what’s to come. Sheltered is a post-apocalyptic bunker simulator where you need to keep your family of four alive for as long as possible. You’ll face many obstacles, meet crazy individuals, fight off intruders, scavenge for materials, and explore a randomly generated map on every playthrough.
Rise and Shine
Play as the young child Rise as he embarks on an epic action-packed shooting adventure with his sacred gun Shine by his side. Together they’ll fight to take down an invading army of aliens known as Space Grunts in the hopes of saving a world where classic video game characters live. Featuring massive explosions, awesome hand drawn set pieces, and gigantic bosses to do battle with, Rise and Shine has all the ingredients of the next great shooter for you to tackle.
Microsoft is promising to reveal some additional Xbox Game Pass titles at their big XO18 event, which kicks off on November 10. I wonder what Microsoft might announce? Could we see some major holdouts, like, say, GTA V join the service?
Xbox Game Pass grants players access to more than 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for 10 bucks a month — you can check out a full list of available games here. Interested in Game Pass, but don’t have an Xbox One? Microsoft recently launched the Xbox All Access program, which gets you an Xbox One console, Xbox Live, and Game Pass for a reasonable monthly fee – you can get more details here. Microsoft also recently announced the service will be coming to PC in the future.
What Xbox Game Pass titles will you be tackling next month? The Sniper Elite games are underrated, and GRIP has received very positive Early Access feedback, so don’t sleep on either of them.
