Microsoft has revealed the six new titles that will arrive to its subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, in March. These six are some of the biggest and most diverse titles the company has ever offered on Game Pass, and they will be available on different platforms for the duration of their lifetime on the service.
The first title on the list, Guilty Gear –Strive-, arrived on the service on March 7. It is available on the cloud, console, and PC platforms. Next, Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3 will arrive on March 9 as cloud-only titles.
The fourth game, Valheim, will be available as a game preview on console from March 14, while Sid Meier’s Civilization VI will arrive on the cloud, console, and PC platforms on March 16. Finally, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom – The Prince’s Edition will join the subscription service on March 21. It will be available on both console and PC.
Game Pass is a monthly subscription service that provides Xbox gamers with access to hundreds of high-quality titles for a low monthly fee, giving them an affordable way to try out even the biggest releases.
Last time out, Microsoft added five titles to the Xbox Game Pass that included F1 22 and Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. While these games will still be available on the subscription service, some earlier titles will depart on March 15 and players have until then before they lose access to them.
The eight titles that Xbox will remove from the Game Pass come March 15 are:
- F1 2020
- Goat Simulator
- Kentucky Route Zero
- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
- Paradise Killer
- Young Souls
- Zero Escape: The Nonary Games
All of these titles are available on cloud, console, and PC platforms, except for F1 2020, which is only available on console courtesy of Xbox’s deal with EA Play. Four titles that are currently available on Xbox Game Pass – Fallout 76, No Man's Sky, Halo Infinite, and Sea of Thieves – recently received updates that improve the game experience for gamers.
Microsoft has opened another of its subscription packages, PC Game Pass, to 40 new countries across Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, including Croatia, Libya, and Qatar. This move brings the total number of countries where people can subscribe to the service to 86. The company is also reportedly developing an Xbox Series S toaster according to a gaming industry leaker.
Microsof is pulling out all the stops to ensure its acquisition of Activision Blizzard is approved. Recently, the company upped its offer for Activision Blizzard titles to remain multiplatform from three to ten years.
