Eight more games coming to the Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft has announced another eight titles coming to the Xbox Game Pass between now and Thursday 6th June.

The first of the new additions will be the somewhat controversial Metal Gear Survive, the survival spin-off Metal Gear game that is notable for being the first Metal Gear game following Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami. It received mixed reviews when it was released in February of last year, but you’ll be able to check it out as part of an Xbox Game Pass subscription from Thursday 23rd May. That’s the same day that the well received 2016 turn-based RPG, The Banner Saga, also joins the Game Pass.

Next up on Wednesday 29th May is stylized sci-fi strategy shooter Void Bastards, which will launch directly onto the Xbox Game Pass. Void Bastards, which the developers note as taking inspiration from BioShock and System Shock 2, will feature a comic book art style and looks a bit like XIII in space. Two more titles will join the Game Pass the very next day; Dead by Daylight is a 1vs4 multiplayer survival game in which one player takes control of a hollywood serial killer (such as Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees) and hunts down 4 ‘survivors’, while Outer Wilds is an open world space exploration indie game that will also be launching directly on to the Game Pass.

A week later on Thursday 6th June, three more titles will join Microsoft’s subscription service. Action-adventure game Full Metal Furies will be joined by 2016’s Superhot, a very well received first-person shooter in which time only progresses when the player moves, allowing you to completely assess a situation before engaging. Rounding out the new additions on that day is The Banner Saga 2, the equally well-received sequel to The Banner Saga, which you’ll have two weeks to finish before the the sequel is added.

If you haven’t subscribed to the Xbox Game Pass then I strongly suggest you check it out – you can subscribe for £7.99 a month, but new subscribers can currently get a 3-month subscription for just £1.
