Yet again, we’re back with another segment of all the latest games coming to Game Pass. Our last entry covered games like Bleeding Edge, The Surge 2, and more which are all currently available on their respective platforms. If you’ve gone in and tried any of these games, let us know what you thought of them and what you want to see next. As you’d expect though, this month brings some great titles to both PC and Console. Without further adieu, here’s everything you can play in the coming weeks.
Starting us off is our only game available for both Game Pass Console and PC, being Alvastia Chronicles. From EXE Create, follow the story of siblings Alan and Elmia on a journey to avenge their parent’s deaths. Along the way, they’ll fight against ever increasingly difficult monsters in engaging turn-based combat. Upgrade your weapons, go on epic journeys, and restore peace to your once appreciated land. Being a lesser-known JRPG, this could very well be a hidden gem that looks worth giving a go.
Now onto our exclusives. For Game Pass Console, you guys get Journey to the Savage Planet from Typhoon Studios. You’re a recruit the fabled pioneer program, a division of Kindred Aerospace. As a pioneer, you’ll have to embark on a new and colorful planet to determine if it’s suitable for alien life. Be careful though, as you’re not the only living thing on this planet and not all welcome visitors. This colorful and charming adventure game promises to surprise you around every turn and is one we were fans of.
In terms of Game Pass PC, there are a whopping three exclusives. For one, there’s Football Manager 2020 from publisher SEGA. FM 2020 lets you manage your football team, creating different rosters and taking on famous football teams to see who has the best roster. It brings in all the great tactical thinking and strategy from the previous games, but with a lot more fidelity and polish. Every decision counts, and it’s all up to you to ensure your team is the best it can be.
Next up is Mistover from indie developer KRAFTON. The Vortex descended on the world, bringing brutal creatures and utter chaos to a beautiful world. Through a miracle, the creatures were pushed out, but now it’s up to you to ensure they never wreak havoc again. Journey into the Vortex and slaughter these vile creatures to save yourself and the rest of mankind from being brought to extinction once again. The game promises tense moments and solid RPG moments in a fight for survival. It may not be critically acclaimed, but let us know what you think of it regardless.
And finally, there are Stranger Things 3: The Game from developer BonusXP. Relive all your favorite moments from the third season of Stranger Things, all in a pixelated video game. You’ll see a lot of the classic events from the show, with some never-before-seen quests and secrets for you to uncover. This is the premier game for Stranger Things 3 fans and is one everyone should pick up and give a go. The game itself is praised for its great aesthetics and solid dialogue. If you haven’t jumped in before, now is the best time.
And finally, we’d like to touch on a few games released between now and our last post. For Game Pass Console, you can play both NieR: Automata and Totally Reliable Delivery Service. They’re two opposite games in style, but two that are great for their genre. As for PC, you can play Overcooked! 2 which I can recommend for you and a few friends. It’s a very fun party game.
And that’s all we have this week. Is there anything you fancy in particular? Anything you wish to have seen this week but didn’t? Let us know, and stay tuned at The Nerd Stash for your future news, reviews, and more!
