gamescom 2017: Xbox Game Pass Launches in 8 New Countries and Adds More Great Games this September

Xbox Game Pass Hero

On June 1, we launched Xbox Game Pass, a new digital gaming membership giving you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games for just $9.99 USD per month, to 31 markets around the world. Since launch, we have been excited by the amazing fan reaction and engagement with Xbox Game Pass.

Xbox Game Pass is part of our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games and to discover new experiences. We believe more is better, and each month with Xbox Game Pass, we add a new set of games to the catalog so you’ve always got something new to play.

Now, it’s time to say Hola, Olá, שלום, Marhaba, Ahoj and Howzit to our fans in Argentina, Brazil, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, Turkey and UAE, as we expand Xbox Game Pass to our fans in 8 new markets starting September 1.

Fans in our new markets can start their 14-day free trial from September 1, and enjoy over 100 great games.

Plus, there’s more! We’re excited to announce seven great new games added to the catalog on August 29, and September 1.

ReCore Definitive Edition

ReCore DE is coming August 29 – and it’s coming right to Xbox Game Pass!  ReCore is an ambitious action/adventure title that puts you in the shoes of Joule, accompanied by her three incredible corebot companions, as you traverse the dystopian world of Far Eden. Battle a wide array of enemies, complete side quests, and solve challenging puzzles in this innovative 3D platforming experience.

Metro: Last Light Redux

The post-apocalyptic fun continues in September with Metro: Last Light Redux, an absolute FPS gem from our friends at Deep Silver. Last Light lands you in Moscow in the year 2034, where you play as the character Artyom, navigating the Moscow metro tunnels and combating a hearty mix of human and mutant adversaries.  Blending in strong survival and strategy elements, Metro is a compelling sequel to the FPS classic Metro 2033 and an experience Xbox Game Pass members will not want to miss.

Fable II

Also coming to Xbox Game Pass in September is the legendary action RPG, Fable II, published by our very own Microsoft Studios.  You play as Sparrow, a young child (you can choose male or female) on a journey to gain vengeance against the evil Lucien.  Combat enemies, complete side missions, and find allies on your way to becoming a true hero.  With both single player and co-op modes, September is a great time to explore the magical open world of Albion.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves

Xbox Game Pass’ stable of awesome fighting games gets a boost in September with the NEOGEO classic, Garou: Mark of the Wolves.  Fight with one of 12 characters in Arcade mode, defeat both bosses, and become the King of Fighters.  Or, find a friend and battle it out for couch co-op supremacy.  If you’re a fan of Fatal Fury, or just classic fighting games in general, you are going to love getting your rounds in with Garou.

10 Second Ninja X

Requiring skill, speed, and precision, 10 Second Ninja X delivers a heck of a lot of fun and plenty of challenge to Xbox Game Pass members.  The premise is simple – you have 10 seconds, a sword, and three shurikens to complete each of the 100 levels in this awesome platformer from our friends at Curve Digital.  Explore the different paths to accomplishing each level’s objectives, unlock costumes, gather achievements and find all nine collectible items as you work your way from Level 1 to Level 100.  You only get 10 seconds per level, but we won’t be surprised if you lose whole days chasing victory in 10 Second Ninja this month.

Hue

Curve Digital is also giving Xbox Game Pass members access to Hue this September, another terrific Indie puzzle-platformer from our ID@Xbox program.  Hue is both the game title and the name of your main character, who is on a mission to bring color to an otherwise monochrome world and solve the mystery of Hue’s lost mother.  Read letters from Hue’s mother, learn to control the colors you progressively unlock, and leverage those colors to solve challenging puzzles.  With a unique and engaging art style, Hue is a must-play in Xbox Game Pass.

The Bridge

As if your brain wasn’t getting enough of a workout, the brilliant minds at The Astrophysicists Guild bring you The Bridge.  A 2D puzzler, The Bridge is tons of fun and very engaging.  And while the puzzles will keep you thinking, it may be the black-and-white art design we love most about this game.  The Bridge feels like an artist’s sketchbook, with each puzzle occupying a single screen, which allows you to closely analyze each level and decipher the best path to completion.  Just don’t be tricked into thinking logic alone will help you succeed in The Bridge – without a fair amount of finesse, and meticulous execution, you may find you need multiple attempts to solve each puzzle and complete the game.

Thanks for reading about the latest developments with Xbox Game Pass, and the great new titles coming this September. For all the latest Xbox news, keep it locked to the Xbox Wire.

Until next month, game on!
