It’s no surprise to see Cricket 19 get bowled out when the newer Cricket 22 recently joined Xbox Game Pass to replace it. Estimates put it at around a 30-hour completion, so there’s still plenty of time if you’re considering going for the base 1,000G, although bear in mind that there are additional DLC achievements as well. Outlast 2 looks to be a slightly longer completion, and also a much harder one thanks to challenging tasks like the Messiah achievement, for beating the game on Insane with a single camera battery — this one will take some doing. Finally, Streets of Rage 4 is an even more involved completion (closer to 80 hours or so) and features a bunch of heavily skill-dependent achievements, so getting it done before it leaves could prove somewhat difficult. The scrolling fighter joined Game Pass on April 30th 2020, making this a longer-than-usual two-year run, and the Mr X Nightmare DLC (not included) also adds an extra 195G to the base list.

These three games join F1 2019 as April leavers, with the racer crashing out today after being overtaken when F1 2021 joined EA Play and Game Pass Ultimate last month. No fixed date has been given for this trio to leave Game Pass, but since we usually get around two weeks’ notice, they’ve likely only got until the end of April, at which time all three will leave both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.

Planning on working through or finishing up any of these before they’re gone from Game Pass? Let us know!
