Game Pass October 2019
F1 2018 is based on the actual Formula One World Championship. The game includes all of the 21 tracks, 10 teams and 20 drivers who are involved in real life. The F1 games are the most accurate F1 car simulators available, featuring all the cars involved in the 2018 championship, all the cars from the previous season and a long list of classic vehicles.
Lonely Mountains Downhill
This fresh indie title is simple, straightforward fun. In Lonely Mountains Downhill, you’ll take a thrilling ride down sheer cliffs, around tight turns, and through thick forests in a heart-pounding attempt to not faceplant. Don’t forget to look around and enjoy the pristine natural wonders you’re riding through– just not for too long!
Minit is a puzzle-exploration game with en interesting twist: you’ll only live for 60 seconds at a time. This unexpectedly fun and challenging new mechanic adds a host of creative gameplay options to Minit’s retro aesthetic. Publisher Devolver Digital is a name you can trust for innovative 2D adventure.
State of Mind
If you’re looking for a game that will make you think, look no further than State of Mind. This futuristic thriller explores what it means to be human in the dystopian, virtual reality consumed setting of Earth in 2048. Plus, the world of State of Mind is as rich and detailed as the story. Dive into this sci-fi thriller later this month.
The Outer Worlds
In the recent Inside Xbox Livestream, senior narrative designer Megan Starks shared exciting new details on the upcoming spiritual successor to Fallout: New Vegas. As we had hoped, in The Outer Worlds you can play this first-person RPG entirely how you want; meaning you can make narrative-changing decisions with the wide variety of factions, voice lines, and gear at your disposal.
In addition, the plethora of voiced companions throughout the game will feature unique opinions, interactions, and even abilities (like a powerful dropkick). And finally, weird, “mad scientist” weapons have been confirmed for The Outer Worlds; like the hilariously fun shrink ray gun or the painful sounding “mandibular rearranger”.
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
In Saints Row IV you play as the sitting US president who has been tasked with saving the world from an alien invasion. But don’t worry, you have an entire arsenal of weapons and superpowers to help you.
Saints Row IV, like the other Saints Row titles, is wild, wacky, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. But most importantly it’s really fun to play. If you thought GTA games let you do “anything” you want, well you’re in for a treat with Saints Row IV.
From the minds behind Cities: Skylines and the Crusader Kings series comes an interstellar strategy experience.
In Stellaris, you’ll journey amongst the stars interacting with new species, exploring new worlds, and forging the greatest galactic empire the universe has ever known. Unlock new technology, forge alliances, and build your civilisation over time in this unique grand strategy experience.
What Is Xbox Game Pass Ultimate?
Players can now get Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold bundled in one package called “Xbox Game Pass Ultimate”. With Ultimate, you can also play an ever-growing library of games on your PC too!
In addition to the wide library of titles available for Xbox One and PC, Game Pass Ultimate gives players access to special bonuses as well. Like exclusive sales, ultra-fast multiplayer, and Microsoft exclusives (on the day they launch).
Don’t need all the PC games and/or Xbox Live Gold? You can save yourself some cash and get a standard Game Pass subscription for about the price of a coffee.
