Xbox Game Pass is advertised as having "over 100 games" and currently boasts well over 200, but sometimes games leave the library too. Two more games have been added to the Game Pass "Leaving Soon" section. Though there's no date specified yet, consider this your last chance to play Just Cause 3 and LEGO City: Undercover via Game Pass.

Just Cause 3 was the first current generation title in Avalanche's open world series. It once again stars the ever-present Rico Rodriguez, a Javier Bardem lookalike action hero equipped with a wingsuit and a bunch of gadgets and weapons as he travels the world toppling dictators. In Just Cause 3, Rico travels to the fictional land of Medici to free the people from the despotic rule of Sebastiano Di Ravello. The game earned strong scores from 110 reviewers on OpenCritic, giving the game a 75 average.

LEGO City: Undercover is also an open world game, one of the first ever such experiences in the series from the longtime developer Traveler's Tales, more commonly called TT Games today. Undercover stars Chase McCain, a police officer in the brickish city fighting crooks and unraveling a conspiracy where no minifig can be trusted. It too earned strong scores during its time as a Wii U exclusive, and then again later when it migrated to other platforms. It has a 77 average on OpenCritic from 63 reviewers.

Both games will exit the Game Pass library at an unspecified date this month, though if you hope to keep playing them after they depart the subscription service, it may be worth buying them now as any permanent purchases made of Game Pass titles come with a 20% off sale price. Then again, both games are regularly on sale anyway, including Just Cause 3's current inclusion in the Xbox Countdown Sale celebrating the new year.

If you need more of a fix for games in each series, both have other installments still in Game Pass. For Just Cause, you can play Just Cause 4, the more gadget-heavy sequel from 2018, whereas other LEGO games in the program include LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars and the Minecraft-like LEGO Worlds.
