At the end of last month, I wrote about eight games coming to Xbox Game Pass. Well, let’s add to that. In a blog post this week, Microsoft confirmed that a total of 13 games will arrive on Xbox Game Pass over the next two weeks, eight of which will be available on day one of launch.
Some of these games, we had already talked about: I Am Pisces, SkateBird, Aragmi 2, Sable, Lemnis Gate and Astria Ascendant. Here’s a look at all of the games that are expected to hit Xbox Game Pass now by October 1.
- Flynn: Son of Crimson (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 15
- I Am Fish (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 16
- SkateBird (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 16
- Superliminal (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 16
- Aragami 2 (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 17
- Lost Words: Beyond the Page (Cloud, Console, and PC) – September 23
- Sable (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 23
- Subnautica: Below Zero (Cloud, Console & PC) – September 23
- Tainted Grail: Conquest (CP) – September 23
- Lemnis Gate (Console and PC) – September 28
- Astria Ascending (Cloud, Console and PC) – September 30
- Blind (Console and PC) – September 30
- Phoenix Point (Console) – October 1
Flynn: Son of Crimson, which is already available since yesterday, is a platform game in which Flynn’s duo and their legendary companion Dex go on a journey of discovery and conflict to save Rosantica from the Scourge. If you are looking for a new puzzle game to test your wits, Superliminal offers puzzles based on perspective and optical illusions.
Phoenix Point is actually an older title, released in 2019, but it’s finally coming to Xbox One (and Xbox Series X | S) with console optimizations. A spiritual successor to the X-COM series, Phoenix Point takes us into the near future of Earth in the midst of an alien invasion. Using tactical strategy, it’s up to you to strike back and save the planet from annihilation.
As I mentioned before, Lemnis Gate is a competitive shooter with a unique approach to turn-based combat, which I am particularly looking forward to. And of course, Aragami 2 is a ninja-themed stealth action adventure that can be played solo or with a friend in co-op.
As you can see, there’s a lot to look forward to when we come to box Game Pass over the next couple of weeks. And this is in addition to all the great games that have arrived in the last few months, including Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, Microsoft Flight Simulator, The Ascent, Hades, Twelve Minutes and Psychonauts 2.
