It’s a new month and that means new games coming to Xbox Game Pass. We’ve already been told about some of the games coming (The Outer Worlds and Felix the Reaper) but we now know more titles and have further details on all of them. Anyway, enough waffle let’s get on with the announcements. These are the games that you will be able to play on Xbox One later this month if you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription –

Will you make your way through the game unseen, make full use of its brutal combat system, or use a blend of both?
