11 new indie games are confirmed for the Xbox Game Pass subscription service.

During yesterday’s ID@Xbox Game Pass showcase, Microsoft announced a slew of new indie titles heading to its increasingly impressive subscription service.

Coming to both Xbox One and PC is Plausible Concept’s real-time tactics game, Bad North. It’s joined by the concluding part of Stoic Studio’s Banner Sega trilogy, and the charming pinball/metroidvania hybrid, Yoku’s Island Express.


Undertale, the hilarious and subversive role-playing game from Toby Fox, is among the games coming to PC, along with Timespinners, Unavowed, and For the King.

Exact release dates weren’t confirmed on the showcase, but we expect each game to turn up shortly. Just keep your eyes peeled. Here’s the full roundup of confirmed titles.
