Game Pass as a service has become exceptionally great value in the last few months, with Microsoft and third parties adding some of the biggest games of the generation to the service, making its lineup that much more alluring. And such is the case with the newest batch of games being added to the service as well, which Microsoft announced today.
Let’s start with the game that will be added on January 17– Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few, their controversial survival game, joins Game Pass tomorrow. The LEGO Movie Videogame joins the lineup tomorrow as well. On January 24, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor joins the lineup, allowing many to play the game that was famous for its emergent Nemesis System first hand. On that same day, Saints Row: The Third will also be available on the service.
Barring We Happy Few, which remains divisive, all of these are fun enough games, and if you haven’t spent money on them (and were never going to), this warrants at least you checking them out. Thankfully, Game Pass continues to move from strength to strength for now.
