The big news from Microsoft today is, of course, its acquisition of Activision Blizzard for the nominal fee of, oh, a small country’s GDP. The immediate effect here means big Activision-released giants like Call of Duty and Overwatch will become a first-party game under Microsoft’s ever-increasing area of ​​responsibility, with much of the publisher’s backlog comes to the Xbox Game Pass. But Microsoft’s unstoppable game-on-demand service continues to grow outside of country-confiscated acquisitions. Here is everything coming soon to the Xbox Game Pass.

  • No one saves the world (Sky, console, pc)
  • Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition (Sky, console, pc)

  • The door of death (Sky, console, pc)
  • Hitman trilogy (Sky, console, pc)

Raise your hand if you just purchased The door of death. First released last summer on PC and Xbox, the irresistibly charming isometric action game hit Switch and PlayStation In November. Most people who has played seem to love it. (Personally, I picked up Hitman 2, plus its two excellent bonus stages, not so long ago. Ouch.)

If you keep up with the ever-changing Game Pass library, you’re aware of it Microsoft has been on a tear the last few months, adds all kinds of headline-grabbing games out of nothing. So it’s a little confusing, at least for me, how little of a surprise so much of this lineup is. For ages, Microsoft’s announced new games coming to Game Pass have been completely outside the left field, which has attracted wide attention solely on the background of buzz. But we knew about most of this month’s additions – inclusive Pupperazzi, that Hitman trilogy, that Rainbow Six game, and No one saves the world, a role-playing game from the creators of Guacamelee– before today’s official announcement.

As always, the Xbox Game Pass series is a constant revolving door. The following games leave the library on January 31:

  • Cyber ​​shadow (Sky, console, pc)
  • Nowhere Prophet (Sky, console, pc)
  • Prison architect (PC)
  • Xeno crisis (Sky, console, pc)
