The Xbox Game Pass subscription service is launching off 2022 with a bang. A remastered anthology of all-time classic RPGs joins a pair of fantastic puzzle games and a widely anticipated Left 4 Dead-alike. In addition, one of the best games of all time (Outer Wilds) makes a comeback. Here's what's coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next weeks.
Gorogoa (Cloud, Console, PC)
Olija (Cloud, Console, PC)
The Pedestrian (Cloud, Console, PC)
Embr (Cloud, Console, PC)
Mass Effect Legendary Edition, via EA Play (Console and PC)
Outer Wilds (Cloud, Console, PC)
Spelunky 2 (Console, PC)
The Anacrusis, via game preview (Console, PC)
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the obvious headline here. Yes, all three games from BioWare’s space opera trilogy are also accessible to subscribers of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but it’s a great delight to play them in 4K—and from the same clean launcher. Plus, you receive access to all of the DLC for all of the games (except for one straggler) (save for one straggler).
Beyond Mass Effect Legendary Edition, there are two puzzle games worth checking out. The hand-drawn elegance of Gorogoa is fascinating. Meanwhile, The Pedestrian is a 2.5D platformer in which you play as the little-human emblem of traffic signs. Fans of shooters should be fascinated by The Anacrusis, which is yet another twist on Left 4 Dead.
