Batman: Return to Arkham is one of three new games coming to Xbox Game Pass today, with more to follow.
Five more titles are confirmed for Microsoft’s growing Xbox Game Pass library, starting with Batman: Return to Arkham, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, and Headlander.
Batman: Return to Arkham is the pick of the bunch, and brings together Rocksteady’s first two acclaimed Batman titles, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Both games have been remastered in Unreal Engine 4 – with mixed results – by Virtuos.
Old Bats is accompanied by Double Fine’s fine metroidvania, Headlander, and Warren Spector’s Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. And on February 28, they will be joined by the second season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, and Creative Assembly’s effective sci-fi chiller, Alien: Isolation.

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.
