Xbox Game Pass Adds CrossfireX, Edge of Eternity, And 8 More (VIDEO)
Though the company sees some formidable competition, Microsoft has been going all-in on Xbox Game Pass as of late, as the whole of Activision Blizzard was recently announced to be acquired in the name of the premier subscription service. However, in the meantime before either deal is officially struck, it appears we have a new batch of Game Pass selections for the month of February, doling out across console, cloud, and PC versions of the service.
This influx of Game Pass arrivals begins on February 3rd, bringing the likes of shadowy platformer Contrast, surreal fantasy roguelike Dreamscaper, and FMV mystery thriller Telling Lies. Physics-based war-builder Besiege follows on February 10th alongside the tech-heavy campaign of CrossfireX, sprawling indie JRPG Edge of Eternity, dead-headed roguelite Skul: The Hero Slayer, and zombie eliminator The Last Kids on Earth and the Staff of Doom.
February 14th closes out this round of Xbox Game Pass debuts, introducing Infernax, a Castlevania-esque retro RPG, as well as Ark: Ultimate Survivor Edition. Touted as a “definitive” collection, this version of Ark is much more than the base ‘Survival Evolved’ that already exists on Game Pass, coming packed with all of the dinosaur survival title’s expansions under one roof, including Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, and Genesis Parts 1 & 2.
While the aforementioned games will greet the hallowed halls of Game Pass, several mainstays of the service are unfortunately leaving in only a few weeks’ time. Remedy’s psionic shooter Control, vampiric action RPG Code Vein, and Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age are all set to depart on February 15th along with supernatural reality thriller The Medium, and multiplayer survival title Project Winter, and sky-soaring combat experience The Falconeer.
