Microsoft has announced an avalanche of new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass in the coming months, showcasing that the service isn’t messing around when it comes to quality.
The announcement was made at X019 in London and not only saw the reveal of several new games coming to Xbox Game Pass, but also the unexpected arrival of a few ports we can’t wait to see on Xbox One.
Sega’s Yakuza series, which has long remained exclusively to PlayStation platforms, albeit with a brief stint on PC, will finally be coming to Xbox One in the form of Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2. All three of these games are fantastic, and a welcome addition to the platform.
CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is also coming to the service, meaning players can experience the epic RPG adventure for a fraction of the cost on Game Pass. If you’ve not played it already, it’s absolutely essential.
