I’m not pulling your Devil Trigger
Microsoft is making another big push for Xbox Game Pass this week at gamescom. The subscription-based gaming service is adding more Xbox One titles throughout August, and it all kicks off today with Devil May Cry 5. It’s one thing seeing Microsoft-owned properties, but this? I have to admit, this rules.
Capcom has been on such a roll as of late and DMC5 definitely falls into that group.
Here’s what the near-future holds for Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC:
- Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (PC)
- Devil May Cry 5 (Xbox One)
- Stellaris (Xbox One + “coming soon” to PC)
- Ape Out (PC)
- Kingdom Come: Deliverance (Xbox One + PC)
- Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut (Xbox One + PC)
- Blair Witch (Xbox One + PC)
- Dead Cells (Xbox One + PC)
I recognize that September will be an awfully busy month for video games, but don’t go sleeping on Dead Cells, either – it’s exactly what the doctor ordered if you’ve got the post-Bloodstained blues.
Outside of locking in these new Xbox Game Pass titles, Microsoft has also been striving to improve the Game Pass for PC experience, which is still in beta. On the docket, the app will let you link outside accounts – including Steam, Twitch, and Discord – on your player card for friend-finding purposes.
More game filtering options, a drive selector for game installations, and PC library listings on the Xbox Game Pass mobile app are also planned. Microsoft says it will “continue to deliver more improvements over the coming months based on your input, so please keep the feedback coming.”
