You may recall that we did a story on last month’s Game Pass for PC games. There were two great titles added, those being Phoenix Point and Infinifactory. Now that we’ve had some time to dig into those, Xbox is bringing more titles to Game Pass for PC today. Those titles are Frostpunk and Faster than Light, otherwise known as FTL. The news was announced via the Game Pass for PC Twitter account, and you can download both games right now!
Frostpunk is a survival city-building game developed by 11 Bit Studios. They’re best-known for other titles such as Moonlighter and Children of Morta. You take control of the ruler of the last city on Earth, in charge of managing your citizens and city. You must make crucial decisions that will shape both civilization and your people. Will your civilization thrive under your rule, or fall under your regime? The choice is yours. The game stands at around a 90% review score, making this a great title for city-building fans. We here at The Nerd Stash recommend that you give this game a go!
FTL, on the other hand, is a top-down real-time strategy game developed by Subset Games. You must manage the crew of your spacecraft, trying to deliver critical information to your allies. Be careful, though, as this isn’t a friendly airspace. You’ll have to control your crew efficiently to take down opponents and help your allies win the war. This title received an 80% score across the board, being cited as a pioneer of the “roguelike-like” genre.
With both these titles now on Game Pass for PC, there’s never been a better time to sign up. Never heard of Game Pass for PC?
