Following last week’s announcement about new games for Xbox Game Pass for console, Microsoft is detailing new titles for Xbox Game Pass for PC.
Here’s what you can expect “soon” or what I assume is for the remainder of September. (Not sure why they’re not being clearer about the release dates.)
Bad North. “Bad North is a charming but brutal real-time tactics roguelite. Defend your idyllic island kingdom against a horde of Viking invaders as you lead the desperate exodus of your people. Command your loyal subjects to take full tactical advantage of the unique shape of each island. Everything is at stake: fail, and watch the blood of your subjects stain the ground red.”
DiRT Rally 2.0. “Carve your way through a selection of iconic rally locations from across the globe, in the most powerful off-road vehicles ever made, knowing that the smallest mistake could end your stage. Rely on your instincts with the most immersive and focused off-road experience yet, and power your rally car through real-life off-road environments in New Zealand, Argentina, Spain, Poland, Australia and the USA, with only your co-driver and instincts to guide you.”
Cities: Skylines. “Cities: Skylines is a modern take on the classic city simulation. Realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a city while expanding on some well-established tropes of the city building experience. The game boasts a fully realized transport system. You’re only limited by your imagination, so take control and reach for the sky(lines).”
Saint’s Row IV: Re-Elected. “A special bundle that includes the award-winning blockbuster Saints Row IV and all DLC. After saving the world from a terrorist attack the leader of the 3rd Street Saints is elected to become President of the United States. Things go reasonably well until an alien warlord named Zinyak attacks the White House and abducts his entire cabinet. Now stuck inside a reality bending simulation, the President and the Saints fight to save themselves, Earth, and the entire galaxy.”
Additionally, Microsoft reports that it has fixed app and download-specific bugs in the Xbox (Beta) app for Windows 10 and that it will soon share information about updates coming to the app in the near future.
“The team is working hard to add new features and make user experience updates to the app every month based on the community’s feedback,” Microsoft notes. “We will be releasing the 1910 update in early October that will make navigating the app and browsing the Xbox Game Pass library faster.”
