Have you jumped on the Xbox Game Pass hype train yet? If your answer is no, why not? At the time of its announcement, many in the gaming community felt skeptical and fell divided. Why should Xbox gamers pay for an additional service that had no proven track record while services like Redbox and Gamefly existed? Xbox Game Pass has now been out for almost three years and shows no signs of slowing down. Earlier this month, Xbox Game Pass added Grand Theft Auto V (GTAV), and now Microsoft has announced three new titles are coming later this month.
Earlier today, Xbox’s Major Nelson announced that Tekken 7, Frostpunk, And Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet would be joining the Xbox Game Pass program later this month. In the post, Xbox also announced that LEGO City Undercover and Just Cause 3 will be leaving the program later this month. In addition to the arrivals and departures, new Xbox Game Pass Quests have been announced.
