New Titles Coming to Game Pass for Console

Posted on December 17, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox One, Xbox with 4 Comments

Microsoft will wind down 2019 by releasing four new titles to Xbox Game for console between now and the end of the month.

Here’s what’s coming and when:

Untitled Goose Game. Available December 17, Untitled Goose Game is “a slapstick-stealth-sandbox where you’re a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village. Make your way around town, from peoples’ back gardens to the high street to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.”

Life is Strange 2 Ep. 5. Available December 19. “Sean and Daniel have reached the end of the road. The border is close. One last, brutal gauntlet of challenges is all that stands between them and their goal. Caught between responsibility and freedom, can Sean find a way out of an impossible situation? Every decision Sean has made, every lesson Daniel has learned, every friend and foe they’ve met along the way: they’ve all been leading to this.”

Pillars of Eternity, Available December 19. “Adapted for console, this unmissable RPG brings Pillars’ fantastical world, tactical combat, and unforgettable story to fans on a whole new platform. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition includes all previously released additional content from the PC version, including all DLC and expansions in a single package.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Available December 19. “A story-driven, next-generation open world role-playing game set in a visually stunning fantasy universe full of meaningful choices and impactful consequences. You are professional monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia, tasked with finding a child of prophecy in a vast world rich with merchant cities, pirate islands, dangerous mountain passes, and forgotten caverns to explore.”

Microsoft also quietly released another game, Ticket to Ride, to Xbox Game Pass for console earlier this month without announcing it. The description: “In this strategy game for all ages, try out different tactics, block your competitors’ lines and take over routes before the others do. With so many different strategies to try, each new game is a unique experience. Travel the world from Europe to India, pass through China and face new challenges by purchasing additional maps with their own special rules (available in expansion packs).”

      In reply to ErichK:

      I bought it for the Nintendo Switch when it first came out. It's a short game, but loads of fun for $15. Just take your time to solve the puzzles without help from the Internet. It's much more rewarding that way.

    I just finished The Untitled Goose Game. Very short, but excellent. Its like Hitman but with a evil goose. The ultimate asshole simulator.
