Xbox Game Pass’s September roster has been widened now offering five new titles covering genres from fun brawl multiplayer to FPS and turn-based strategy.
Among the five games available this month, we note Payday 3, a sequel to the well-known co-op tactical heist series. Being a continuation, we will find some of the previous operators/characters, but this time the theatre of operation is moved to New York. To begin with, eight heists will be available, as more should come later via free updates or DLCs.
Next we have Party Animals, where you fight with or against your friends in a variety of maps and game modes to see who the last triumphant survivor will be. The game allows you to choose from a selection of cute animals that can be customised with funny clothes such as a Royal Corgi, a Knight Rabbit, and a Spartan Cow. A game just begging to be paired with a themed graphics card.
Personally, I’m planning to have some fun in Party Animals and Payday 3. A good opportunity to dust off my Series X, which I must confess I have neglected following my recent PC upgrade.
