We’re here again with another segment of our Game Pass coverage series. If you haven’t seen these before, we cover all the new games coming to Game Pass in the next few weeks. As announced in our last segment, games like Pikuniku and Ori and the Will of the Wisps are now playable! If you haven’t jumped in (points if you got that), make sure you do so and let us know what you think of them. The rest of this month promises to offer six more titles, with one PC exclusive and two Xbox exclusives. Without further adieu, here they are.
Bleeding Edge is our first title this month and is a PvP team brawler from the developers of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. This game has each fighter don some mechanical gear and battle using different abilities and moves. Select your battler from a diverse cast and fight to become the cybernetic champion of the century. This game will be available on March 24th, thanks to the Game Pass’ Day 1 promotion, and it should be fun for those looking for a brawler type game.
The Surge 2 is the hit sequel to the action-RPG by Deck13. Take on the role of a mechanically-enhanced soldier who’s been trapped in the outskirts of Jericho City. With many robots looking to ensure your death and a large storm looming over the city, things aren’t looking good for you or humanity. Only you can put an end to whatever this madness is, and you’ll have to use your strategy and large arsenal to do so. If you’re into Dark Souls type games, this is definitely a title you’ll want to look into. The Surge 2 comes to Game Pass for PC and Console tomorrow.
Next up is Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, a fighting game from nWay, INC. Play as the Power Rangers across a massive multiverse of all your favorite Power Rangers characters. With easy to pick up mechanics that are hard to learn and master, this is the type of game to welcome players from all levels of play. Using the solid gameplay of previous Power Rangers games with some refinements, this is one fans will feel familiar with and appreciate. Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will be available on March 26th on Game Pass PC and Console.
And then we have the exclusive titles. For PC, we have Astrologaster. This is a comedy game set in the fantastical Shakespearian London, developed by Nyamyam (Tengami). In the game, you’ll experience the life of “Doctor” Simon Forman, a doctor who excels in astrology but lacks in being an actual doctor. Treat many different patients with hilarious and interesting personalities. This is a narrative game you won’t soon forget, and you can play it later this month.
As for the console exclusives, there’s Kona and Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Kona is an adventure game setting you in a town in Northern Canada. A mysterious blizzard has descended on this town, and it’s up to you to figure out what happened to the townspeople. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, on the other hand, is an aerial combat game that includes great flying and beautiful aesthetics. You’ll engage in dogfights in anything from clear skies too large storms, all affecting your aircraft in different ways. Both these titles come tomorrow, so be sure to check them out.
And that’s all for this installment. Let us know what you think of these titles, and if there’s any, you wish to see in the future. Otherwise, stay tuned at The Nerd Stash for all your news, reviews, and more!
