Xbox announced in September that the second wave of games is coming to Game Pass. Former PlayStation exclusive Deathloop is one of the most notable new titles on the Xbox console. Other new games coming to the platform include Slime Rancher 2 and the full release of Grounded.
Deathloop is one of the more interesting additions, as it was previously a PlayStation exclusive. Following Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, including Deathloop developer Arkane, the latter assured players that the exclusivity would be honored. Now it’s finally available on Xbox, alongside Hardspace: Shipbreaker, which launched today on console and cloud.
Xbox is also getting several Day One titles, starting September 22. These include wiggly sim game Slime Rancher 2, adventure game Beacon Pines and co-op brawler SpiderHeck. On September 27, users will get the new release Moonscars, as well as the full version of Grounded. On the last days of the month, Let’s Build a Zoo, PAW Patrol Grand Prix and a preview version of Valheim will be launched.
As always, we have to sacrifice other games to get our new ones. Unfortunately, this includes the original Slime Rancher and AI: The Somnium Files, the latter of which also has a recently released sequel. The other games leaving Game Pass on September 30 are Astria Ascending, Dandy Ace, Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Going Under, Lemnis Gate, Subnautica: Below Zero, The Procession to Calvary, Unsighted, and Visage.
