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.
