Going into this week, I thought I’d have a nice short article to write about the games we’re losing. Nay. Xbox pulled out a last minute release and is gifting us 5 new games today alone. We also lose a few as well, but hopefully nothing that will take the wind out of our collective sails. Let’s take a look at what’s changing this week on Xbox Game Pass.
This week on Xbox Game Pass, our friends over on the PC end of things get a little bit of love, and Android users get an extra distraction as well. All the new arrivals this week have joined us on October 15th. Go check them out while they’re here!
Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition – PC
PC players will be happy to hear the definitive edition of a more-than-beloved RTS franchise is available for their gaming pleasure this week. Players will command mighty armies in 4K UHD, as well as all previously released DLC and expansions.
Check out Age of Empire III: Definitive Edition on the Microsoft Store.
Heave Ho – PC
This week on Xbox Game Pass, Devolver Digital has graced us with a heavy dose of silly platforming action. You and up to three other players can join hands to avoid falling to your collective demise. As a big fan of any co-op, this goofy, floppy-armed platformer looks like a ton of fun.
Check out Heave Ho on the Microsoft Store.
Katana Zero – Android, Console, & PC
Fans of fast-paced action are sure to love Katana Zero. This pixely hack-n-slash title zooms in at absolute blistering speeds, challenging players with instant death and time manipulation mechanic to dice up a wide array of foes.
Check out Katana Zero on the Microsoft Store.
Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition – Console, & PC
This week on Xbox Game Pass, we are given the remastered edition of one of the most critically acclaimed entries in the Tales franchise. The definitive edition brings HD graphics, new playable characters, and new stories.
Check out Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition on the Microsoft Store.
The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse – PC
Go on an epic dungeon crawl with friends in The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse. You can work with friends or solo to defeat the evil Mormo and bring peace to the land. Oh, and score a buttload of loot, too.
Check out The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse on the Microsoft Store.
What did we lose?
This week on Xbox Game Pass, we have a few losses, the biggest of which is probably Metro 2033. Hopefully you had an opportunity to finish these while they were available. Otherwise, you’ll always be able to download them for full price on the Microsoft Store, as usual.
- Felix the Reaper
- Metro 2033 Redux
- Saints Row IV: Re-elected
- State of Mind
Tune in next time to see what changes next week!
