Xbox Game Pass Adding Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Crackdown 3, de Blob, Batman: Return to Arkham and More in February
Xbox Game Pass is adding Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Crackdown 3, Batman: Return to Arkham, and more to its catalog in February 2019.
Xbox Game Pass is going to be adding a bunch of great games in February 2019, from major recent releases like Shadow of the Tomb Raider to the long awaited Crackdown 3.
During the Inside Xbox live stream it was announced that Shadow of the Tomb Raider would be appearing on Xbox Game Pass on February 7, 2019. Lara Croft’s origin story finale will be free to download and play to any subscribers. It was just last month that Microsoft and Square Enix added Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition to the Game Pass library. Alongside Shadow of the Tomb Raider, The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season and Pumped BMX Pro are also being added to Xbox Game Pass subscribers on February 7. The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season was the breakout hit of the sadly now defunct Telltale Games and brought back adventure games to the mainstream. Pumped BMX Pro is a physics platformer not unlike the Trials games from Ubisoft but with more of a focus on performing tricks alongside angling yourself for non-crash landings.
de Blob, which first saw life on the Wii thanks to also now defunct THQ, is coming to Xbox Game Pass on February 14, 2019. Coat yourself in paint so you can likewise coat the bland Chroma City in a colorful combination of the rainbow. Thankfully it has cooperative gameplay modes allowing up to four players enjoy this title on Valentine’s Day.
Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City have been remastered and combined into the Batman: Return to Arkham package that comes to Xbox Game Pass on February 21, 2019. Coming with Xbox One X enhancements, you can work as Batman through a variety of combat and puzzle scenarios (though you really only need to play Asylum).
Finally, Crackdown 3 arrives after years of delays and questions. First announced at E3 2014, Crackdown 3 is finally about to release and will be included in Xbox Game Pass at launch and allows players with a Windows 10 PC to download and play it on that platform as well.
A throwback with all the ingredients that made the series a fan favorite. Over-the-top and crazy antics will have you stopping crime as a super-powered agent of justice in a comic book inspired playground of mayhem and destruction, either solo or co-op with a friend via Xbox Live.
Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that allows those who pay $9.99 a month access to hundreds of video games to download and play on their console. Every first party Microsoft title will be available on the service as well, and new titles are being added every month, as indicated by February’s offerings.
