Hryb also said that the other titles in the pile would be revealed in March.
Xbox Game Pass is the Netflix-style subscription service that allows players to choose from a library of games for a monthly fee. It has a little bit of a leg up on its Sony rival, PlayStation Now, in that it actually lets you download the games – meaning you don’t have to rely on the internet to stream them.
Recently Microsoft announced that all games made by Microsoft Studios will be released on Game Pass at the same time they release in shops, which is a real boon for anyone interested in games like Forza, Halo, Gears of War, Crackdown 3, and State of Decay 2.

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.
