Ten new Xbox Game Pass games have been announced to be coming in January of next year, adding to the dozens of other games that players can use the Game Pass service to rent and play without having to spend 60 dollars on a game that for all intents and purposes they’re renting.
The ten games that are being added include Bayonetta, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Deadlight: Director’s Cut, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, NBA Playgrounds, Tecmo Bowl Throwback, WRC 5 FIA World Rally Championship, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection, and Fusion Frenzy. While most of these games may not catch the eye of most gamers, it still shows that, like the backwards compatible system, Microsoft is willing to innovate more when it comes to selling games.
These new Xbox Game Pass games will be joining the dozens of other video games that are currently available on the service, all of which can be played for free for a relatively low monthly subscription. While the selection isn’t as large as the Xbox One’s current full library or its backwards compatibility section, it still allows you to play a lot of good games without having to shell out 60 or so dollars.
While most of the new games aren’t exactly “must play material”, games like Bayonetta, Metal Gear Solid, Injustice, Deadlight, and Devil May Cry at least will give players a good time while they’re being played, especially if you move from the original Injustice to Injustice 2, which came out earlier this year. If you can stomach the game not having a third act, Ground Zeroes can also get you to buy and play Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
If you haven’t gotten the Xbox Game Pass yet, you can try it out for free for two weeks, more than enough time to try out the new Xbox Game Pass games, and see if you like them.
