Honk if you like great video games!

Untitled Goose Game waddled onto Xbox Game Pass yesterday, December 17. The beady-eyed avian terrorist is probably very upset that the Tories won the UK general election, so the opportunity to widen its net of destruction will no doubt be welcome.

But that’s not all. Three other fantastic video games also join Xbox Game Pass on console this week.

Untitled Goose Game – December 17

You just read about this one. Do keep up.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – December 19

The Witcher 3 featured in our games of the decade list, and not just because Geralt looks hot in the bath. We’re sure Microsoft will be compensating them well, but it’s probably no coincidence (from a marketing perspective) that CD Projekt Red has allowed The Witcher 3 onto Xbox Game Pass just before the Netflix adaptation begins.

Pillars of Eternity – December 19

This Infinity Engine-style role-playing game from genre veterans Obsidian is a C-RPG just like mama used to make. If you’re of the (weird, baffling) opinion that Fallout got better when it went first-person then you might want to steer clear, but for everyone with fond memories of retro Fallout, Wasteland, and yes, Baldur’s Gate, Pillars of Eternity is a treat.

Life is Strange 2: Episode 5 – December 19

While series two might not have reached the heights of the first season, or as consistently, it’s still a poignant and impressive adventure from the new masters of the genre. Get ready for tears, goodbyes, and an introspective look at a once-great country’s horrible, awful wall.

Keep in mind that these games are all announced for Xbox Game Pass for console, not Xbox Game Pass for PC. But with nearly 400 games across both platforms, you’re bound to find something you like.

(And it’s probably going to be Untitled Goose Game.)
