Most of the games that are being added to Xbox Game Pass are already out, so people will already know what they are about. Dead by Daylight, for example, is an asymmetrical multiplayer game that pits original and licensed Killers like Ghostface against Survivors. Other games such as Void Bastards and Outer Wilds are being added to Xbox Game Pass on the day they’re released with those two coming out on May 29th and May 30th, respectively.
Microsoft’s Description of the Game
“Explore for the sake of your curiosity with a hand-crafted solar system filled with secrets to discover and perils to avoid while exploring space,” Microsoft’s quick description of the game reads. “Players are given a variety of tools to aid in space-backpacking: including their own spaceship and jetpack; a surveyor probe for scouting and taking pictures; and a signalscope to track down audio signals as well as view landmarks from afar.”
Xbox One users everywhere will be able to play these games and more through a new product called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, eventually. Microsoft revealed the bundle that combines Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold, and it had later expanded the testing for the product to more people as it moves toward a widespread release.
