A Great Lineup Joins Xbox Game Pass This Week On Xbox One
There's an eclectic set of games for Xbox Game Pass subscribers this week.
A new set of Xbox One games will become available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. As revealed on Xbox Wire, this week's list features varied experiences on Xbox One.
Starting today, you can download indie studio House House's breakout smash-hit, Untitled Goose Game. We gave the charming puzzle game at 8/10 in our Untitled Goose Game review, saying, "There's nothing else quite like Untitled Goose Game; it's charming and cute despite being mean, and both very silly and very clever. It's also probably the best non-racing game ever to feature a dedicated 'honk' button."
Three other games are on offer later this week as well. On Thursday, December 19, you can download Life is Strange 2's fifth episode, action-RPG Pillars of Eternity, and open-world RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3 has seen continued success since its 2015 launch, receiving a Nintendo Switch port in October 2019 and a Daemon X Machina crossover content drop at the beginning of this month.
All four titles are available to download for subscribers of Xbox Games Pass for Console or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Xbox Game Pass Lineup December 16-20
- Untitled Goose Game
- Life is Strange 2, Episode 5
- Pillars of Eternity
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The Xbox Wire post also makes a few other notable announcements. Two games are leaving Xbox Games Pass soon: Double Fine's 2016 Metroidvania Headlander and Xbox Live Arcade classic Tecmo Bowl Throwback. There's no date on when these two titles will no longer be offered through Xbox Game Pass; however, both are currently 20% off since they will be leaving the subscription service in the near future.
Three games are available to pre-install right now on Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. The recently-revealed Gears Tactics can be pre-installed on PC ahead of its April 2020 release. Similarly, Ninja Theory's multiplayer combat game Bleeding Edge and Moon Studios' Metroidvania Ori and the Will of the Wisps are also up for pre-installation on both PC and Xbox One before they officially launch in March 2020.
