Keeping with its regularly scheduled adding and removing of games to its subscription service, Xbox is planning to add six new games to Xbox Game Pass throughout the next couple of weeks. While having access to first-party games through Game Pass on launch day is a huge selling point for the service, there are a ton of third-party titles coming and going that players should be on the lookout for.
There’s a wide variety of games coming soon for anyone who’s curious and has access to Xbox Game Pass to check out. While notable games such as 2016’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided or Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite are sure to grab people’s attention, there’s plenty more for players to look out for.
Here is every title releasing on Xbox Game Pass in the next few weeks, including their release dates:
Providing consistent support for Game Pass is going to be important for Xbox, especially if the company plans on expanding accessibility of the service to other platforms. With rumors surfacing of Xbox Game Pass coming to the Nintendo Switch in the future, showing this type of support of making sure new games are being added to the service could continue to spark an interest to a wider audience of gamers.
As far as its competition between other game companies, Xbox will need to make sure it continues to grant access to a wide variety of games. With the recent announcement of Google Stadia, expected to come out this year, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer commented on Stadia’s announcement, while also acknowledging his team will be hard at work to make sure Xbox continues to build upon its own services (Xbox Live, Xbox Game Pass) to the best of its ability.
For those who may not be interested in any of the games mentioned above, or don’t own a subscription to Xbox Game Pass, there’s currently an Xbox Store sale discounting many critically-acclaimed titles on the platform, with games such as Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and indie titles such as Celeste and Dead Cells receiving major price cuts for a limited time.
