Xbox Game Pass loses several quick completions soon - grab the achievements while you can

By Sean Carey,
A total of seven games are set to leave Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC, including some quick and easy completions. #IDARB, Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons, Old Man's Journey, Hydro Thunder Hurricane, KOF98UM, Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones (Win 10) and Magnum Opus will all be leaving the subscription service shortly. Xbox hasn't given a specific date for when these games will leave, only that they will be playable for "two weeks". This likely means you'll have up until the end of the month to grab any of the achievements you might need from the games listed below.

#IDARB

IDARB E3 6

Description: Built with the input of thousands of crazed internet gamers, #IDARB is a chaotic, 8-player, eSport jumping future arena ball game, complete with wild half time competitions, unlockable recipes, and disruptive “hashbombs” which dynamically change the game itself via Twitch and Twitter! Prepare to battle everything from Moustache Cops to Breakfast, in this highly customizable, fast action game inspired by 8-bit sports and arcade classics!
#IDARB has just 12 achievements worth 1000 Gamerscore and is considered a quick completion. The game's achievement list is pretty straightforward apart from a couple that you might find somewhat tricky. The Over "The Air" Achiever, for example, requires you to use either Twitter or Twitch. The Dizzy Dealer achievement requires you to stun 25 online opponents, so it might be worth setting up a boosting session for that one. Otherwise, the rest of the list is relatively easy — especially if you follow the #IDARB walkthrough.

Old Man's Journey will be leaving both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC. It's a Play Anywhere title, so you don't need to worry about completing this one twice.

Hydro Thunder Hurricane

Hydro Thunder Hurricane Xbox Game Pass

Description: This sequel to Midway’s legendary arcade racer features amazing dynamic water physics, transformable rocket-powered boats, gorgeous visuals and over-the-top interactive environments like Area 51 and the Bermuda Triangle. Conquer four game modes – Races, Ring Masters, Gauntlet, Championships — and race against your friends’ best performances in the all-new Ghost Race!
Hydro Thunder Hurricane is another game leaving both services. It's an Xbox 360 arcade title that is backwards compatible. Achievements can only be unlocked through Xbox Game Pass and not the PC version. The racing title has 15 achievements worth just 250 Gamerscore. Unlocking them all will take an estimated eight to ten hours, so it's not quite a quick and easy completion, but you might be able to get this one finished even quicker if you follow the Hydro Thunder Hurricane walkthrough.

Description: In Stealth Inc 2, you play the role of a clone escaping a sinister and high-tech testing facility. Stealth Inc 2 tests both your brain and your reflexes over 60 varied levels linked together in a sprawling overworld.
Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones is only leaving Xbox Game Pass for PC. The PC version has a separate achievement list compared to the console version. However, the PC achievement list has four unobtainables and seven discontinued achievements. This means the entire list is pretty much broken and cannot be unlocked, so you might want to avoid this one. Be warned, the console version of Stealth Inc 2 also has one discontinued achievement.
