Xbox Game Pass Next Additions Include Katana Zero and Age of Empires
Tales of Vesperia, Heave Ho and The Swords of Ditto are other solid additions to a stacked month.
If you’ve been around the video game space in any capacity, you’ve probably heard Xbox Game Pass referred to as the best deal in gaming. Containing an assortment of Microsoft’s biggest first-party games, a slew of third-party gems and access to EA Play in the very near future, Microsoft’s subscription service is a must-have for any Xbox owner.
As they do every month, Microsoft has just confirmed the latest additions to the service, with no fewer than eight games joining the party. Headlining the list is an excellent indie title and the definitive version of a PC classic. The full list is as follows:
- Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition (PC) – October 15
- Heave Ho (PC) – October 15
- Katana Zero (Android, Console, PC) – October 15
- Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (Console and PC) – October 15
- The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse (PC) – October 15
- ScourgeBringer (Console) – October 21
- Cricket 19 (Console) – October 22
- Supraland (Console) – October 22
Once again, Microsoft has flexed its Game Pass muscles with another great and varied batch of games. Age of Empires is a classic strategy hit, Katana Zero is a critically acclaimed neo-noir, action-platformer and Tales of Vesperia is a beloved RPG that originated on the Xbox 360. These games join the recently added Doom: Eternal to a stacked month of additions.
Not everything can last forever however and there will be a handful of games leaving the service over the next couple of weeks. Leaving on October 15 are Felix the Reaper, Metro 2033 Redux, Minits, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected and State of Mind. On October 30, After Party, LEGO Star Wars III, Rise & Shine, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game and The Red Strings Club will all be saying their goodbyes.
With Microsoft’s recent acquisition of gaming giant Bethesda, Xbox Game Pass will only continue to get stronger. At the time the deal was announced, Xbox head Phil Spencer stated that Microsoft “will be adding Bethesda’s iconic franchises to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.”
