As per the Xbox mobile app, six games will leave Xbox Game Pass soon. Tales of Vesperia, ScourgeBringer, Katana Zero, Gonner2, Heave Ho, and The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse will all drop out of the service on October 16th.

Gonner2

GONNER2 Achievements

Description: In this sequel to Gonner: Journey your way through deep, dark, chaotic places with unimaginable sparks of colour as you go on a mission to help Death rid a mysterious presence from her lair.

Gonner2 and Gonner2 (Windows) will leave Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC on October 16th. Unfortunately, both versions have one unobtainable achievement, so if you care about your TA completion percentage and haven't started the platformer, it may be worth avoiding this one.

Description: Katana ZERO is a stylish neo-noir, action-platformer featuring breakneck action and instant-death combat. Slash, dash, and manipulate time to unravel your past in a beautifully brutal acrobatic display.
Katana Zero leaves Xbox Game Pass after a year in the service on October 16th. The platformer has 22 achievements that will take you four playthroughs and between 20 and 25 hours of your precious time to unlock. Thankfully, to make things a little easier for you, we have a superb Katana Zero walkthrough (written by xXJGRANTXx) that will aid you on your way to the full 1,000G. Just be aware that the Hardmode and Gold Medal achievements will require some skill to unlock.

Katana ZERO is a stylish neo-noir, action-platformer featuring breakneck action and instant-death combat. Slash, dash, and manipulate time to unravel your past in a beautifully brutal acrobatic display.

Exceptional Combat: Overcome your opposition however the situation requires. Deflect gunfire back at foes, dodge oncoming attacks, and manipulate enemies and environments with traps and explosives. Leave no survivors.

Hand-Crafted Sequences: Each level is uniquely designed for countless methods of completion. Defeat foes creatively, using spontaneous approaches to eliminate your enemy as you see fit.

Unconventional Storytelling: An enigmatic story told through cinematic sequences woven into the gameplay, twisting and folding to an unexpected conclusion.



ScourgeBringer

ScourgeBringer Achievements

Description: ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced free-moving roguelite platformer. Help Kyhra to explore the unknown and slash her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past, and maybe the redemption of humanity.
Another platformer dropping out of Game Pass and Game Pass for PC on the 16th is ScourgeBringer. The game is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so it shares an achievement list between console and PC versions. According to estimates, it will take you between 10 and 12 hours to unlock all 42 of ScourgeBringer's achievements. This is largely down to the game having an invulnerable mode and other options tucked away in its accessibility menu. For more on that and how to unlock each achievement, check out kabinlikdus' excellent ScourgeBringer walkthrough.

RPG Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition and its Windows version are also leaving Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC on October 16th. If you haven't already started ToV, be prepared to invest some serious time over the next couple of weeks, as estimates suggest it will take between 150 and 200 hours to complete Bandai Namco's epic RPG. Over 30 of the game's achievements are flagged as missable, so it's worth planning ahead and checking out the guides we have available for each one.

Also dropping out of Xbox Game Pass for PC are Heave Ho and The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse, which don't support Xbox achievements. It's likely that Microsoft will announce what new titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass shortly, so keep an eye on the TA homepage!
