Xbox announced the upcoming second wave of games Game Pass in September. Deathloop, formerly a PlayStation exclusive, is one of the most notable new titles on the Xbox system. Other new games coming to the platform include Slime Rancher 2 and the full release of Grounded.
Deathloop is one of the more interesting additions, as it was previously a PlayStation exclusive. After Microsoft acquired Bethesda – including Deathloop developer Arkane – the latter assured players that exclusivity would be respected. Now it’s finally on Xbox, along with Hardspace: Shipbreaker, which launched on console and cloud today.
Xbox is also getting some Day One titles, starting September 22. These include the wiggly sim game Slime Rancher 2, the adventure game Beacon Pines, and the co-op brawler SpiderHeck. On September 27, users get the new version of Moonscars, as well as the full version of Grounded. Coming out at the end of the month are Let’s Build a Zoo, PAW Patrol Grand Prix and a preview version of Valheim.
As always, we had to sacrifice other games to get our new ones. Unfortunately, this includes both the original Slime Rancher and AI: The Somnium Files, the latter of which also has a recently released sequel. Other games leaving Game Pass on September 30 include Astria Ascending, Dandy Ace, Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Going Under, Lemnis Gate, Subnautica: Below Zero, The Procession to Calvary, Unsighted and Visage.
