The January additions to Xbox Game Pass have been announced! Just the other day we were looking back on the 5 best games added to the subscription service in 2018, and there are already some serious contenders for 2019’s list.
Along with the complete seasons of Life is Strange and Life Is Strange: Before the Storm (which snuck into the Xbox Game Pass catalog right before the new year) members will also have access to 6 other new games this month. Check them out below.
Life is Strange 2: Episode 1
With Episode 2 about to release later this month, now is the perfect time to start the story of Life is Strange 2. You’ll play as Sean, who is on the run with his 9-year-old brother for a murder he may or may not have committed. With no choice but escape, it’s now up to you to look after yourself and your younger brother as you journey across the U.S. to Mexico.
Ark: Survival Evolved
If you haven’t played this ultra-popular survival game, now is your chance to try it out. Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, it’s up to you to hunt, craft, harvest and build your way to survival– or die trying!
Farming Simulator 17
This super popular franchise has finally arrived on Xbox Game Pass! The Farming Simulator series is the ultimate virtual farming experience. With enhanced graphics, immersive controls, and detailed visuals, Farming Simulator 17 is really realistic and really fun.
In Absolver, you awaken in a strange land with an equally as strange mask on your face. When wearing this mask you will never worry about silly mortal things like eating, drinking, or even dying. However, this mask places you under the control of the Guides, the new rulers of the Adal Empire. These mysterious beings will decide your worth, and it’s up you to prove yourself.
Just Cause 3
If you’re enjoying the recently released Just Cause 4, you should really give this 3rd game in the series a try. You’ll be headed to Medici, a Mediterranean republic under the control of a brutal dictator who’s hungry for more power. Once there, you’ll have 1000 km² of absolute freedom, weapons, and vehicles at your disposal. It’s time to cause chaos and put an end to this despotic regime.
This competitive game will put you and your 2 other teammates up against a squad of robots in fast-paced, tactical game-modes. Here’s the twist: the robots are invisible, and the security squad working to stop them is invincible. Which side will you choose?
