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.
