Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass team announced on their official Twitter page that they will soon be adding 4 new titles to their already rich catalog.
The 4 new titles announced are Resident Evil: Revelations, Rare Replay, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Goat Simulator. While the exact date these games will become available hasn’t actually been disclosed, it is hinted that it will happen “very soon”.
The Xbox gaming community already has access to 100+ titles, but these latest additions will surely stir up some interest. Admittedly, none of the mentioned games are new releases, the oldest of them being from 2014. But all of them are considered classics that have garnered wide public acclaim.
Even more so, if you are a fan of having entire game series in one place, you’ll be glad to know that now you will be one step closer to having the entire Resident Evil series for the Xbox.
While it is true that no further games have been announced, one could only assume that since two of the titles are now available, it would be only natural for all of them to become available, eventually.
Will it be worth it?
While the prices themselves weren’t discussed either, if we take into consideration the Xbox Game Pass’ tendency to offer discounts of up to 20% on the games they have in their catalog, then we are in for quite some hefty discounts.
Given that other gaming platforms have their own equivalent, such as how PC gaming has Steam, Epic Store or GOG, and how the PS4 has Playstation Plus, it isn’t hard to see why such a subscription service would not be successful for Xbox users.
The Xbox Game Pass is a service implemented by Microsoft on the 1st of June 2017 that requires a monthly subscription.
This service grants Xbox users access to a catalog of games from a wide variety of publishers, and is considered by the community a more cost-efficient way of acquiring games rather than getting them at full price.
