Xbox Game Pass Adds 10 Games In Early September
You'll have a lot to keep you busy with a bunch of new Xbox One and PC games coming to the service over the next few weeks, including Crusader Kings 3.
Xbox Game Pass is getting a whopping 10 new games over the next few weeks, across Xbox One and PC. One high-profile new release is available right now on PC, and the others will be coming within the first two weeks of September. [Update: Several more games outlined below hit Game Pass today, September 10, including Disgaea 4 Complete+ on PC. Additionally, Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and Forsaken will arrive on Game Pass on September 22.]
Starting today you can download Crusader Kings 3 for PC, an intricate strategy game that was only just released. It scored an 8/10 in GameSpot's Crusader Kings 3 review; it's a solid addition to the Game Pass library. It's the first entry in the Crusader Kings series in nearly a decade.
Starting on Thursday, September 3, you can get Jackbox Party Pack 4 on Xbox One and World War Z on PC. Resident Evil 7, Tell Me Why Chapter 2, and Luna Nights will be available on that date for both Xbox One and PC.
Then next week, you can grab Star Renegades and Disgaea 4 Complete on PC, Hotshot Racing on Xbox One, and Tell Me Why Chapter 3 on both Xbox One and PC. The announcement also mentions that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep (last year's big expansion) and Forsaken will be available on Xbox One "soon," but doesn't give a specific release date. The Beyond Light expansion was planned for a September release, but was pushed to November. It will also be available through Game Pass. You can check below for the full schedule of releases.
September also marks a few games leaving the service. Those include NBA 2K20 (which makes sense with NBA 2K21's launch approaching), Red Dead Redemption 2, Gonner, and Jump Force. These can be purchased at a discount before they leave the service for Game Pass subscribers.
Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service offering access to roughly 100 games. The Xbox One and PC versions of the service cost $10 per month apiece, but a combined "Ultimate" subscription bundles them together with Xbox Live Gold for $15 per month. Microsoft also recently announced that an Ultimate subscription will include its streaming service starting this month.
