It’s our favorite time of the month: The day when we get to share new games coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC! Coincidentally our next favorite time is when we get to say, “Available Today!” But I digress. Here are the games!
Jump in to this 4X strategy game as you lead one of eight unique civilizations, each with their own unique gameplay and story. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react?
Final Fantasy IX
Zidane and the Tantalus Theater Troupe have a plan to kidnap Princess Garnet, the heir of Alexandria. To their surprise, the princess herself beats them to the punch and orchestrates her own escape with their unwitting help, granting her the freedom she yearned for beyond the castle walls. Through a series of unusual circumstances, she and her personal guard, Steiner, fall in with Zidane and his crew, and set out on an incredible journey in this classic Final Fantasy adventure.
Halo Master Chief Collection: Halo 2
