Xbox Game Pass For PC Adds More Games For October, Including A Big Brand-New Release
Explore the galaxy, race around the track, or bike downhill this month.
We're well into October now, which can mean only one thing: pumpkin spice everything. But also, the new month means another slew of Xbox Game Pass games are incoming. Microsoft detailed the lineup coming throughout the rest of the month on PC, for both PC and Ultimate subscribers.
The headliner of the October set is The Outer Worlds, a spiritual successor to the Fallout series from some of the leads who brought that series to life. Instead of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Outer Worlds has you exploring space. Though it's coming from a studio that is now Microsoft-owned, it's actually being published through Private Division. Still, the company has brokered a deal to make it a release on Game Pass across both PC and consoles.
Other releases for October include the racing game F1 2018, the mountain bike game Lonely Mountains Downhill, and the micro-sized game Minit. You can also be a super-powered president in Saints Row 4: Re-Elected, experience a sci-fi thriller with State of Mind, and journey into the stars with Stellaris.
None of the announced games have a release date, except for The Outer Worlds which releases on October 25 and is also available on the console Game Pass. The announcement also notes that Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption will be leaving the service in October, so play it while you can.
The list of PC releases is separate from the Xbox One console lineup, which includes Dishonored 2, World War Z, Yooka-Laylee. You can purchase the PC or console game pass individually for $10 per month, or get the combined "Ultimate" Game Pass that also includes Xbox Live Gold for $15 per month.
