Gamepass games :Microsoft has broken expectations and upset game writers everywhere in recent months by putting treasures like Tunic and Paradise Killer on Game Pass without notice. Then there was a long period of silence on the Game Pass front. For a while, some rational observers (hi) believed Microsoft had abandoned the practice of announcing its Game Pass lineups ahead of time. But that’s not the case! Here’s what’s coming up in the next several weeks on the games-on-demand service.
Yes, pour one out for The Long Gloomy, because it is long and dark, but at least the hole is being filled by a slew of other games worth your time.

Last year’s surprise hit, Lost In Random, had a Tim Burton-inspired graphic style and a novel fighting system that combined turn-based and real-time action. Chinatown Detective Agency is a point-and-click mystery adventure that demands you conduct some outside-of-the-game investigating (well, let’s be honest, Googling).
Life is Strange:
True Colors was also named one of Kotaku’s games of the year for the year 2021. These have been replaced by a plethora of cloud-gaming capabilities for some of EA’s biggest hits. Overall, it’s a really good selection, especially considering the coming release calendar drought, especially when contrasted with February and March’s assault.
It’s also the first time Microsoft has announced a lineup since Sony disclosed information about their upcoming PS Plus overhaul. PS Plus, for those who aren’t aware, will launch in June and will be similar to Game Pass in terms of providing access to a large downloaded game library for a monthly fee of $10 to $15. However, the two services are not identical. For starters, PS Plus 2.0 does not (yet) have access to a comparable games-on-demand library, such as EA Play. Though, given that it’s responsible for about half of this month’s Game Pass offers (a ruse to persuade users to pay extra for the higher-priced tier, which includes EA Play), it could use one.
