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.
Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC
- Bad North
- The Banner Saga 3
- My Time at Portia
- Worms W.M.D
- Yoku’s Island Express
Xbox Game Pass for PC

The showcase also featured interviews with the developers behind some future ID@Xbox games, including Blair Witch, Way to the Woods, and Spiritfarer. Devolver Digital’s Nigel Lowrie also speaks about Hotline Miami, The Messenger, and Hatoful Boyfriend.
Game Pass subscriptions start at $4.99 a month for PC only, and $9.99 for console only. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings the whole caboodle together – along with Xbox Live Gold membership – for $14.99 a month. New subscribers can try each tier for $1 for the first month.
