Megan Spurr, the Community Manager at Xbox Game Pass has recently announced a number of video games coming to and sadly leaving the service in the month of February. So have your controllers at the ready for what’s coming.
Final Fantasy XV
Coming to Game Pass on February 6 is Final Fantasy XV. If you haven’t played a game in this critically acclaimed series yet or have been turned off by previous entries, fret not! Final Fantasy XV changes things up just enough to make it accessible to newcomers. With a revamped, more action-heavy combat system and jaw-dropping visuals there’s a lot to love about the game. To give a brief summary of the story, you play as Prince Noctis on an epic road trip with his friends to reclaim his kingdom from an evil empire.
On the same day (Feb 6) subscribers will be treated to the latest installment in the Wolfenstein franchise. Set 19 years after Wolfenstein 2, you play as the twin daughters of the BJ Blazkowicz dismantling the Nazi regime in Paris (making their father proud). Unlike the previous games in the rebooted series, Youngblood offers players a more open-ended style of gameplay where you can explore more freely and complete missions, side missions and unlock abilities completely at your own will.
On February 13, subscribers will have access to this quirky co-op puzzle game. Get your family around or a group of friends together to help guide robots through deadly obstacles and get to safety. If cooperative play isn’t your thing, don’t worry as you can still play this game in singleplayer mode.
On Valentine’s Day weekend, the Bleeding Edge closed beta will become available. Coming from Ninja Theory, known for titles such as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and DmC: Devil May Cry, Bleeding Edge is their first foray into a multiplayer-only world. The game is scheduled to be released on March 24.
If that wasn’t enough, there are two pieces of DLC coming for Dead Cells and Metro Exodus. Both were released on February 11, The Bad Seed DLC pack for Dead Cells will be available and Sam’s Story for Metro: Exodus.
Sadly, it’s not all good news. There are a handful of games that will be leaving the platform very soon, so if you haven’t played any of these yet I suggest you quickly free up some time if you were at all interested in them: Disney Epic Mickey 2, Jackbox Party Pack 2, Pumped BMX Pro, Rage and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
