Death’s Door, Rainbow Six Extraction and Windjammers 2 are among this month’s second wave of Xbox Game Pass titles.
I’ll confess. I didn’t play Death’s Door until this year, and I played it on Nintendo Switch. Nonetheless, it was definitely one of the best games released in 2021 and definitely one of the best Zelda-like action exploration games I’ve played in recent memory. If you haven’t sampled the delight’s of Acid Nerve’s macabre world, it’s a must-play when it comes to Xbox Game Pass later this week.
We’re also eager to play Nobody Saves the World, the latest release from Guacamelee! developer Drinkbox. And Dotemu’s long-awaited Windjammers 2 is also looking good. Both are released day and date on Xbox Game Pass.
Among the other games arriving before the end of the month is Rainbow Six Extraction and IO Interactive’s sublime Hitman Trilogy.
All in all, it’s another excellent month for Microsoft’s pile of shame subscription service. Here’s the complete list.
