Scrap plans for the weekend as Xbox Game Pass adds eight more titles

More games than free time.

Persona 5 Royal

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
Gunfire Reborn

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)
Xbox Game Pass - October

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.
