Xbox Game Pass adds four games in January 2020

Xbox Game Pass will add four games across console and PC this month.



Xbox Game Pass - Tekken 7

Xbox Game Pass will add four games across console and PC this month.

If you’re looking to spend a little money and play a lot of games, Xbox Game Pass continues to be your best bet. And it will get better this month, as it adds four new games across PC and Xbox One.

Frostpunk: Console Edition will hit Game Pass for console players on January 9. Tasking players with keeping one village livably warm in a frozen post-apocalypse, Frostpunk is a well-received 2018 management sim. Frostpunk’s PC Game Pass due date is less concrete, and is currently listed as “coming soon.”


FTL: Faster Than Light – the spaceship management roguelite that Subset Games made before 2018’s Into the Breach – is also “coming soon” to Game Pass for PC Beta.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet will also arrive for console subscribers on January 9. If you’re not a hardcore fan of the anime, reviews suggest you may want to skip this one.

Later in the month, Tekken 7 will bring a strong fighting game to console players. Tekken 7 released to positive reviews in 2017, and will hit Game Pass on January 16.

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.
