Posted on September 26, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox One with 3 Comments

October is going to be a big month for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, with Forza Horizon 4, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and five other games coming to the service.

“October’s Xbox Game Pass update is going to keep you and your thumbs busy,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle explains. “You can find all these [new] titles, in addition to over 100 more great games included in your membership, on the Xbox Game Pass tab on your home console.”

Here’s what’s coming in October.

Forza Horizon 4. Arriving on October 2, a day later than the other titles listed here, Forza Horizon 4 is the highly anticipated sequel to 2016’s massive hit Forza Horizon 3. It’s an open-world racing game with dynamic seasons, over 450 cars, and solo or team play options.

Wolfenstein: The New Order. “After a daring mission goes awry during World War II, special forces operative William ‘BJ’ Blazkowicz wakes up in the year 1960 to find that the Nazi’s have taken over the globe. The war isn’t over for BJ as he takes up arms to reignite the resistance and take down the tyrannical fascist regime. Featuring intense first-person shooter combat and a compelling story set in a terrifying alternate history, see where it all started with MachineGames’ reboot of the classic Wolfenstein franchise.”

Metro 2033 Redux. “Moscow, 2033. An entire generation has been raised underground after an apocalyptic event two decades prior. As Artyom, a resident of a besieged Metro Station city, you will venture to the desolate, nuclear wasteland above and deep into the heart of the metro system to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat from dangerous mutants and an even more mysterious enemy that goes unseen. Featuring a massive world to explore, weapon customization, and harrowing first-person shooter elements, Metro 2033 Redux is the definitive version of this classic game.”

Westerado: Double Barreled. “Cowboys! Guns! Mystery! Experience all that and more in this spaghetti western-inspired action game that’s unlike any western you’ve played before. After a bandit murders your family in cold blood, it’s up to you to track him down and deliver justice. The wrinkle to the game is that each time you play, the killer’s description and trail is different, and you must piece together the clues as you travel through the open world, taking on side quests and talking to NPCs.”

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. “Join Indiana Jones (in brick form) on a series of his classic adventures inspired by the films, all with a unique, tongue-in-cheek flavor – and lots, and lots of LEGOs. You’ll battle, build, and brawl your way from the jungles of South America to the mountaintops of India uncovering secrets and collectibles galore across 18 levels of family gaming fun.”

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. “With melee moves, magic spells, and Shantae’s trademark animal transformations, you’ll embark on a gorgeously animated, action-packed platformer journey spanning burning towns, tropical waterfalls, searing deserts, haunted abodes, and more. Numerous abilities and upgrades await, and you’ll need them all to discover secret areas and overcome dangerous foes, including a gargantuan sandworm, a very angry mermaid, and Shantae’s arch-nemesis: the sinister pirate queen Risky Boots.”

Split/Second (October 1). “The city is rigged to explode blow and you’re in control of the action as bridges will fall, buildings will become clouds of rubble, and cars will be blown to pieces. This is the world of Split/Second, an intense racing game set within the world of a big-budget reality game show where contestants will race across a city made for destruction to be first to cross the finish line. Full of explosive stunts, demolition, and racing thrills, this racing game is full of high-octane excitement.”
