Games with Gold is going to have a hard time competing with Xbox Game Pass in November.
Not only has Microsoft launched Rainbow Six Siege as part of the subscription service in October, but they’ve got another six titles lined up for next month.
They may not be as big as R6, but there’s plenty to be excited about if you’re looking for new games to try out.
Depending on the kind of titles you like to play, ARK Survival Evolved could be a big one for November 2020.
ARK will be arriving on Xbox One’s Game Pass on November 17, bringing a massive open-world survival experience to the service.
It’s been around for a while now but ARK’s mix of brutal gameplay and base-building mechanics can easily get you hooked.
That’s without mentioning the amazing lineup of dinosaurs you can tame, and bosses you can fight.
If ARK isn’t your cup of tea, you can also check these other games, all of which will be going live on November 5 for Xbox Game Pass:
Celeste (Android, Console & PC) Help Madeline survive her inner demons on her journey to the top of Celeste Mountain, in this super-tight platformer from the creators of TowerFall. Brave hundreds of hand-crafted challenges, uncover devious secrets, and piece together the mystery of the mountain.

It’s a coming-of-age story starring Nessa & Demelza, exploring the coasts of Penfurzy on their trusty bikes, looking for a legendary lost treasure in a Goonies-inspired tale of excitement, danger, fun and friendship.
Games with Gold is going to have a hard time matching that and Microsoft have been lacklustre with their contributions this year.
With the month ending in such a short time, we should hear more about the new free games lineup in the coming days.
No set date has been announced for this reveal, but we would expect it to happen before Saturday, October 31.
