Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Shenmue 1 and 2 and more leaving Xbox Game Pass soon

By Sean Carey,
The latest round of casualties has been announced for both Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Shenmue, Shenmue II, Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition and Thimbleweed Park will be leaving both services. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set to leave Xbox Game Pass for Console, while Titan Quest Anniversary Edition and Apocalipsis will be leaving Xbox Game Pass for PC.

As always, no date has been announced for when these titles will leave. Usually, you have about two weeks to grab any achievements you might need before they drop out of Game Pass.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided — Leaving Xbox Game Pass for Console

A Criminal Past Screens

Description: The year is 2029, and mechanically augmented humans have now been deemed outcasts, living a life of complete and total segregation from the rest of society. Now an elite covert agent, Adam Jensen is forced to operate in a world that has grown to despise his kind. Armed with a new arsenal of state-of-the-art weapons and augmentations, he must choose the right approach, along with who to trust, in order to unravel a vast worldwide conspiracy.
Size: 41GB
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is going to be a tough completion in the time you have left, but it's still doable. A completion will take you around 40-50 hours to unlock the game's 50 achievements. It will require multiple playthroughs, but our Walkthrough should be able to guide you through the process. Pay close attention, though, as there are plenty of missable achievements and collectables on the list.

Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition — Leaving Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC

We don't have a completion estimate on site for Lichtspeer: Double Speer Edition as only a few people have managed to polish off the achievements for this one. From reading the achievement descriptions, it looks like this could be a tough one. One of the difficulty levels is called Rage Quit, and for the I've been to hell and back achievement, you'll need to achieve UBER ratings on the Rage Quit difficulty.

Shenmue — Leaving Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC

Shenmue 1 & 2

Description: Only available as a part of Shenmue I & II. You are Ryo, a young man trying to solve the mystery of his father's death. Shenmue offers a true living world, where characters exist on their own timelines, and almost all objects can be manipulated and used. Learn new hand-to-hand fighting techniques, interact with hundreds of characters and solve a myriad of puzzles. The saga begins…again.
Size: 5.1GB
Shenmue's 28 achievements will have you taking an estimated 15-20 hours to unlock — not too bad considering how long you have left. We have a highly-rated Walkthrough here on TA that will guide you through the process too. There is a separate achievement list for Shenmue I & II for Win 10. This list combines both the first and second Shenmue titles and will take you around 40-50 hours if you follow the Win 10 Walkthrough.

Shenmue II Leaving Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC

Shenmue II

Description: Only available as a part of Shenmue I & II. "Across the sea, from a distant land in the East, he shall appear…" Ryo Hazuki arrives in Hong Kong, China on his continued mission to avenge his father's death and discover the truth behind the Phoenix Mirror. The saga begins…again.
Size: 11.4GB
Shenmue II will take you roughly the same amount of time as Shenmue — 15 to 20 hours. You could be done with the completion quicker than that estimate if you follow the Walkthrough. Again, Shenmue II has a separate Win 10 achievement list which is combined with Shenmue. The Walkthrough for both games on the Win 10 list will have you completing the game in 40-50 hours.

Thimbleweed Park Leaving Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC

the truth is out there

Description: In Thimbleweed Park, a dead body is the least of your problems. Switch between five playable characters to uncover the surreal secrets of this strange town in a modern mystery adventure game from the creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion. The deeper you go, the weirder it gets.
No stacks for Thimbleweed Park, unfortunately, but it is the game with the shortest estimated completion time. The adventure title will take you around 8-10 hours to unlock its 33 achievements. Several achievements are related to the story and can't be missed. Following the Walkthrough onsite will see you mopping up the rest in no time.
