Xbox Game Pass - The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds, Afterparty and Secret Neighbour are among the seven new games coming to Xbox Game Pass over the next few weeks.

We knew that The Outer Worlds was debuting on Xbox Game Pass but we now have confirmed dates for some more titles coming to Microsoft’s video game subscription service.

Mountain biking game Lonely Mountains: Downhill – which reminds us a little too much of Descenders – comes to Game Pass on its release this week, as does multiplayer horror extravaganza, Secret Neighbour. They are joined by Obsidian’s aforementioned sci-fi RPG and Jan Willem Nijman’s delightful micro adventure, Minit.

The month ends with the addition of Afterparty and the Xbox 360 family classic, Lego Star Wars III. Superb underwater survival game Subnautica drops on November 7, 2019.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
