Microsoft has revealed the games they’ll be adding to the console version of Xbox Game Pass in the first half of October, and it’s another solid assortment of stuff. Microsoft will be serving up World War Z, Fallout: New Vegas, Dishonored 2, the new-release title Felix the Reaper, and more!
You can check out descriptions for the new Game Pass titles below:
Dishonored 2 (October 3)
Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, the follow-up to Arkane Studio’s award-winning, first-person action blockbuster, Dishonored. Play the game your way in a world where mysticism and industry collide. Combine your character’s unique set of powers, weapons, and gadgets leaving the choice in your hands on how to eliminate your enemies and survive in this game’s dangerous world.
World War Z (October 10)
A heart-pounding, co-op third-person shooter for up to four players featuring swarms of zombies as you fight for survival amid an undead apocalypse. As the end looms, a hardened few bands together to defeat the horde and outlive the undead. You can also fight other players for survival across several intense player vs player vs zombies modes to complement the co-op campaign.
Yooka Laylee (October 10)
From open-world platformer veterans Playtonic, explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters, and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit.
Fallout: New Vegas – Xbox 360 (October 17)
Welcome to New Vegas. It’s the kind of town where you dig your own grave prior to being shot in the head and left for dead…and that’s before things really get ugly. It’s a town of dreamers and desperados being torn apart by warring factions vying for complete control of this desert oasis. It’s a place where the right kind of person with the right kind of weaponry can really make a name for themselves… and make more than an enemy or two along the way.
Felix the Reaper – Day-one Premier (October 17)
From Daedalic comes the quirky Felix the Reaper, a 3D shadow manipulation puzzle adventure game of dance, dying people, and dangerous love. Felix dances his way through this game with ease and moves that make you consider joining in. But don’t let his moves fool you; he’s still a killer.
Panzer Dragoon Orta – Xbox (October 17)
As the young girl Orta, ride upon the back of a fearsome dragon as you fight to save the world from destruction. Fly over spectacularly hostile terrain, engage in high speed aerial combat, and attack imperial strongholds with multiple weapons and various dragon forms in this classic Xbox title.
