Three critically-acclaimed games coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC

Microsoft has announced three critically-acclaimed titles that will be coming to the Xbox Game Pass for PC in the coming weeks.

First up is Gris, a “serene and evocative experience” featuring a “meticulously designed world brought to life with delicate art, detailed animation, and an elegant original score”. The puzzle platformer originally released back in December 2018 and currently still retails for £14.49 over on Steam. Second up is A Plague Tale: Innocence, an action-adventure game which follows “the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history”. Originally launching in May 2019, A Plague Tale: Innocence still retails at £39.99.

Finally we have Children of Morta, a story-driven RPG “about an extraordinary family of heroes”. Children of Morta features a “unique mix of action-adventure, RPG, rogue-lite, and hack and slash” where you’ll “develop not only individual characters but also the entire family as they stand against an encroaching darkness”. Children of Morta is the most recent of the three games having released back in September of last year, still retailing at £18.49.

All three games received critical acclaim at launch, which makes this is a fantastic round of additions to the Xbox Game Pass for PC. If you’re good at math then you’ll already have worked out that buying all of these games individually would set you back a hefty cumulative total of £72.97, which shows you just what great value for money Microsoft’s subscription service is. Xbox Game Pass for PC is £3.99 per month or £11.99 per quarter, but don’t forget that new subscribers can currently get the first three months for just £1, which is a fantastic deal.
