Microsoft is offering yet another batch of eight titles on the popular Xbox Game Pass subscription service. Highlights include the much-awaited Persona 5 Royal and scary Amnesia.
We are at it with a new list of games finding their way into the beloved Xbox Game Pass, after a less-than-ideal first-half October due to a weakly optimised A Plague Tale: Requiem, and a disappointing Scorn, which had so much potential but didn’t deliver.
Before month’s end, you will have the opportunity to play the following titles:
- Amnesia: Collection (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 20
- Amnesia: Rebirth (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 20
- Phantom Abyss (Game Preview) (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – October 20
- Soma (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 20
- Persona 5 Royal (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 21
- Frog Detective: The Entire Mystery (PC) – October 27
- Gunfire Reborn (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 27
- Signalis (Cloud, Console, and PC) – October 27
You should be accustomed to the unfortunate reality of live services insofar as games leave after some time. This round we say goodbye to:
- Alan Wake: American Nightmare (Console and PC)
- Backbone (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Bassmaster Fishing 2022 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Project Wingman (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Second Extinction (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Sniper Elite 4 (Console and Cloud)
- The Forgotten City (Cloud, Console, and PC)
There are also DLCs and Game Updates for the following titles:
- No Man’s Sky: Waypoint Update – Available now
- Sea of Thieves: The Herald of the Flame – Available until October 27
- The Sims 4: Get To Work Expansion Pack – Available today
- Minecraft Dungeons: Fauna Faire – October 19
- Age of Empires IV: Anniversary Edition – October 25
Note that the Sims 4 is now available for free on Steam to keep forever, although you have to pay for DLCs. And they are not cheap, culminating at €641,42 for the complete set.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks include:
- Fallout 76: 25th Anniversary Bundle – October 27
- Secret Neighbor: Sportswear Bundle – Oct 27
As always, a reminder for those who have neither used an Xbox Game Pass membership; the first month is available for only £1.
