Five more games coming to the Xbox Game Pass for Console

Microsoft has announced another batch of games that are coming to the console version of the Xbox Game Pass.

The first new additions will be Jump Force and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which will both join the Xbox Game Pass on Thursday 19th September. Jump Force only released back in February, and although it received mixed reviews it does allow you to do battle with and against a whole host of famous manga faces from series such as Naruto and Dragon Ball Z. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, meanwhile, is an “exploration-focused, side-scroller action RPG” which is considered as a spiritual successor to the Castlevania series. The metroidvania title picked up great reviews when it was released just a few months ago, so this one will be well worth checking out. Both of these titles are Xbox One X Enhanced.

A week later on Friday 26th September, three more games will be arriving on the Xbox Game Pass. The first, Bad North, is a well-received strategy game which tasks you with defending your kingdom against a bunch of angry Viking invaders. The second, DiRT Rally 2.0, allows you to race through a number of iconic rally locations in places such as New Zealand, Argentina, Spain, Poland, Australia, and the USA. DiRT Rally 2.0 is also a recent release, having only seen the light of day back in February of this year. Both DiRT Rally 2.0 and Bad North are also Xbox One X Enhanced.

The final game to be added on Friday 26th September will be LEGO Worlds, a 3D sandbox game that allows you to build your own world out of lego, which is effectively Minecraft but with lego. The game picked up mixed reviews when it was released back in 2017, and your time would most definitely be better spent with Minecraft. LEGO Worlds is not Xbox One X Enhanced.

You can subscribe to the Xbox Game Pass for £7.99 a month, or you can grab a membership for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (which gives you Game Pass for Console, Game Pass for PC, and an Xbox Live Gold subscription) for £10.99 a month, although new subscribers can currently get one month for £1 or two months for £2.
