The latest Xbox Game Pass titles take players to the Streets of Rogue and the streets of Paris.
Microsoft has added four new games to its all-you-can-play game service. All four are indies. All four are quite different. And all four are worth playing.
First up is Paris-set noir adventure, Night Call. We reviewed it on Switch, and although it’s not without flaws, we said it was a “visually bold game.”
No Code’s Observation, meanwhile, transports players to a remote space station to solve the mystery of a missing crew.
Sabotage Studio’s The Messenger is a fun Ninja Gaiden-style action platformer with an inventive twist that spans console generations.
Finally, if you enjoy rogue-likes, Matt Dabrowski’s Streets of Rogue should have you covered with its colourful and chaotic randomly generated cities.
All four games are now available on Xbox One. On PC, Observation joins The Messenger, which is already available.
