The hits keep coming to Xbox Game Pass. Seven top games join Microsoft’s subscription service before the end of the month.
The highlight is Frontier’s epic space adventure, Elite Dangerous. It’s hard to know where to begin when describing Frontier’s ambitious game, and that’s part of its magic. Elite Dangerous is one of those rare experiences that genuinely lets players express themselves through how they play. It’s not for the faint-hearted though. To completely engage with the game takes time, commitment, and more than a few YouTube tutorials.
More instant pleasures are on offer in Killer Queen Black, the action-packed team platformer from Liquid Bit and BumbleBear Games. And if that doesn’t hit the spot, you could always try Superhot: Mind Control Delete, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, or Dirt 5.
Here’s the full list of February’s new Game Pass additions.
