Journey to the Savage Planet, Alvastia Chronicles, Football Manager 2020 and more have joined Xbox Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass continues to be the best deal in gaming. Just as I was about to shell out 30 bucks to play Journey to the Savage Planet during quarantine, Xbox Game Pass comes along and says, “Here, enjoy the problematically-titled sci-fi comedy game on us.”
Typhoon Studios’ debut game launched in January, to mostly positive reviews, and it’s free now for the console edition of Game Pass. Alvastia Chronicles, a throwback RPG, is also free on both consoles and PC.
Football Manager 2020, Mistover, Alien: Isolation, and Stranger Things 3: The Game are also now available on PC. And, later this month, Yakuza Kiwami will join Yakuza 0 on the service.
There’s never been a better time to grab this service. Personally, I’ve had a great time plowing through the Halo 2 co-op campaign with a friend during quarantine. And with more and more games getting delayed until the crisis is over, Game Pass is a fantastic way to ensure you have something to play.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
