Here are the new Xbox Game Pass Quests for January 2021

Gears 5: Hivebusters

Xbox Game Pass Quests reset on January 5, 2021. So if you try to collect as many Microsoft Rewards points as possible, there’s a new set available now.

Last year, Microsoft made big changes to Xbox Game Pass Quests. Instead of having a limited number of quests for players to earn points, there are now around 90 quests each month. Some of the quests are available daily; others are either weekly or monthly.

So what’s in store for us? Here are the quests that you can unlock and earn points for this month. The monthly quests expire on February 1.
