Xbox has been particularly busy over the last month, having conjured hopes of a Scalebound revival, assured players Activision Blizzard games will still come to PlayStation, and more recently, released a next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077. However, as we find ourselves in the middle of February, a new array of Xbox Game Pass games has now been unveiled to the public, debuting some newbies as well as some old favorites across Cloud, Console, and PC.
First up, Xbox Game Pass is greeted with BioWare’s alien-banging space odyssey, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, which is now available to stream on the cloud. February 17th will see the arrival of Lawn Mowing Simulator for Xbox One users, EA’s latest football sim Madden NFL 22, and epic fantasy crossover threequel Total War: Warhammer III. Long announced roguelite cyber-FPS Roboquest will also finally release into Game Preview on February 22nd.
A few days later on February 24th, towering 4X strategy title Galactic Civilizations III will be added to the Xbox Game Pass library alongside cartooney baseball slugfest Super Mega Baseball 3. Hot off the heels of an announced TV show based on the American McGee’s Alice games, twisted fairytale adapt Alice: Madness Returns also makes its way down the rabbit hole for PC players, having been available via EA Play for the Console version for years now.
Of course, as users know well by know, Xbox Game Pass giveth as it taketh away. Disappearing at the end of February 28th, players will say goodbye to bizarre 90s internet sim Hypnospace Outlaw, arcade-style RTS Killer Queen Black, puzzle platformer Stealth Inc 2, and sharp-edged Castlevania-like Touhou Luna Nights. As part of the game’s universal delisting from digital stores, Respawn’s original Titanfall is also set to depart on March 1st.
