Microsoft has revealed a new batch of games heading to the Xbox Game Pass service this month.

During yesterday’s Inside Xbox broadcast, more games were confirmed for Microsoft’s all-you-can-play games subscription service, Xbox Game Pass.

One of the more surprising titles to be revealed was Square Enix’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Released last September to mixed reviews, the game closes the trilogy begun by Crystal Dynamics in 2013. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is already available on Game Pass.


Other games coming to the service this month include the remaster of THQ’s de Blob, a duo of excellent superhero adventures from Rocksteady in the Batman: Return to Arkham collection, and the complete first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead.

This month’s biggest game, however, is the long in development open world adventure, Crackdown 3. Early reports suggest that if you love more of the same, you’ll love this.

Crackdown 3 is also an Xbox Play Anywhere title, and will be available on Windows 10 PC in addition to Xbox One.

Xbox Game Pass – February 2019

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider – February 7
  • The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season – February 7
  • Pumped BMX Pro – February 7
  • de Blob – February 14
  • Crackdown 3 – February 15
  • Batman: Return to Arkham – February 21

If you are yet to sample Xbox Game Pass, you can grab a one month subscription for an introductory price of £1/$1. Membership includes access to over one hundred games, including all of Microsoft’s first party exclusives.
