New Xbox Game Pass Games Available Now On Xbox One

But if you teach a man to fish, he can game forever.


The latest of wave of games for Xbox Game Pass has some great choices as Microsoft continues to hand out new games to subscribers. Some of the January 2020 games for Xbox One users are available now with a few more to come at the end of the month. This follows a recent announcement of new Xbox Game Pass PC games joining the service. As always, the Xbox One and PC game lineups are accessed with separate subscriptions, or one combined "Ultimate" subscription.

Microsoft's Major Nelson has provided the list of new games for this month, with the console version of the service getting A Plague Tale: Innocence and Indivisible on January 23, followed by Sea Salt and Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour on January 30. [Update: Both A Plague Tale and Indivisible are now available to download for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.]

A Plague Tale comes as no surprise since it was just announced for the PC service, as multiplatform games often come to both versions of Game Pass. Still, it's a treat to see given that it was one of GameSpot's choices for best games of 2019. Indivisible is another new game from 2019; it received a warm reception, especially for its lovely art style, creative combat system, and representation of Southeast Asian culture. Sea Salt is an action-strategy game in which you play as an elder god punishing humanity for defying you. Fishing Sim World is exactly what it says on the tin--a detailed simulation of everyone's favorite way to sport while you nap.

In addition to A Plague Tale, the PC version of Game Pass also recently announced Children of Morta and Gris. A number of games are preparing to rotate out of the subscription soon, including Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Resident Evil 4, Saint's Row the Third, The Division, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

Xbox Game Pass is an all-you-can-eat subscription service, granting a library of roughly 100 games. The Xbox One and PC libraries are slightly different, and you can subscribe to either one individually for $10 per month. Game Pass Ultimate combines the two, and also includes a subscription to Xbox Live Gold, for $15 per month. Check out some of our recommendations if you're just getting started.
