Microsoft’s 2Spooky for Halloween Xbox event continues with four new games added to Xbox Game Pass.
First up is Dead Island: Riptide – Definitive Edition, the remastered version of Techland’s 2013 zombie survival horror game. It’s joined by Outlast from Red Barrels, perhaps the most genuinely disturbing video game to be released in recent years.
Dynamic Pixels’ Hello Neighbor adds some sandbox stealth shenanigans to proceedings in a game we admittedly didn’t love, saying “think 90s point and click adventure, but more arbitrary.” And finally, Blade Runner icon Rutger Hauer adds some gravitas to Bloober Team’s inventive cyberpunk thriller, Observer.
The four new games flesh out the Xbox Game Pass 2Spooky collection, which also includes the likes of Wasteland 2, Dead Rising 3, multiple Resident Evil titles, and Xbox exclusive, State of Decay 2.
If you need a little enticement, three-month memberships for Xbox Game Pass are currently discounted, and 14-day free trials are available for all new subscribers. Head over to the Microsoft web store for more information.

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.
