Well, it’s about that time that Xbox shows us what’s going to be available for Game Pass in the next few weeks and it looks like there are going to be some bangers.
I, however, am going to be very biased and talk about the few that I know about and will just include Xbox’s copy for the ones I’m not familiar with.
Now that I got that disclaimer out of the way, let’s begin!
Jusant – October 31
I was able to play this game as a part of Steam Next Fest during the summer and I must say that I’m intrigued. This is a game from DONTNOD where you play as a young boy scaling a giant cliff, mountain, giant rock, something and learning about what happened to the inhabitants. While the demo only featured rock climbing, light puzzle solving, and some light reading, I really hope that’s all there is to it.
City Skylines 2 – October 24
As you may or may not have known, the console versions of this game have been delayed into 2024 and Paradox Interactive has come out and said that the game “not achieved the [performance] benchmark we targeted”, so keep that in mind going into the PC only release. I know Kev is really excited for it, and I’m eager to try it, get frustrated and never launch it again.
Dead Space (2023) – October 26
But, seriously, this is the remake that Calysto Protocol wanted to be. If you missed your chance to play it at launch, you can now play it as a part of EA Play.
Let me know how that goes for you.
Now from Xbox…
