Madden 24 is coming to Xbox Game Pass just in time for the Super Bowl

A list of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in February.

Xbox revealed a new batch of library additions coming to its Game Pass service. The list includes some heavy hitters in Resident Evil 3 and Madden 24, as well as some indie hidden gems.

Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s subscription service that gives players access to select games for a monthly fee, will add eight new games in the first half of February. The rollout will start today with Anuchard and continue until February 20 with the sci-fi title Return to Grace.

The biggest addition this month is Madden 24, which hits Xbox consoles and PC on February 8. That’s just in time for this weekend’s Super Bowl, so you can use it to create your own simulation of the big game. Subscribers will earn an Ultimate Team Supercharge Pack if they try it before March 8.

Game Pass is also adding another Resident Evil game. This time, Capcom’s Resident Evil 3 remake is joining the service on February 13. It’ll be available on PC, console, and cloud. The news hopefully signals that we might see last year’s excellent Resident Evil 4 on the service sometime soon.

A few indie standouts round out the month. On Valentine’s Day, players can grab cozy puzzler A Little to the Left and the Castlevania-inspired Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. Here’s the full list of titles coming to the service this month.

  • Anuchard (Cloud, console, PC) — Now available
  • Train Sim World 4 (Cloud, console, PC) — February 7
  • Madden 24 (Console, PC) –February 8
  • Resident Evil 3 (Cloud, console, PC) — February 13
  • A Little to the Left — (Cloud, console, PC) — February 14
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Cloud, console, PC) — February 14
  • PlateUp! (Cloud, console, PC) — February 15
  • Return to Grace (Cloud, console, PC) — February 20

Oddly, the headline of the Xbox Wire post about Game Pass’ upcoming titles mentions Tales of Arise, but it isn’t mentioned in the article of its image showing off the new batch of games. It seems that the RPG is headed to the service, but it’s currently unclear if it’s scheduled to launch this month or not.

Persona 3 Reload leads a surprisingly strong batch of Xbox Game Pass additions

Microsoft unveiled the next batch of new Xbox Game Pass titles, which are dropping between January 18 and February 8. Of the seven new titles coming to the video game subscription service over that time span, four are new games being added on the day of their release. The most noteworthy of those games is Persona 3 Reload, Atlus' highly anticipated remake of an RPG classic.

Persona 3 was first released for the PlayStation 2 in Japan in 2006 and came to North America just a year later. While its sequels would go on to garner a bit more immediate acclaim, Persona 3 provided the solid foundation that they all built on. It is darker than those future entries, though, as you'll go from living your life as a Japanese teenager to shooting a gun at your own head to summon a Persona in stylish turn-based battles. Persona 3 is considered one of the best RPGs of its generation, and this remake brings the experience to modern platforms with a visual overhaul that makes it look more like Persona 5.

Frostpunk 2 will come to PC Game Pass when it launches this year
A city in Frostpunk 2.

11bit Studios confirmed that Frostpunk 2 will be released on PC sometime during the first half of 2024 and will be on Game Pass from day one alongside the first full gameplay reveal for the highly anticipated survival city-builder.

The new gameplay trailer for Frostpunk 2 is just over two minutes long and gives the public a first look at the game's city-managing mechanics. Frostpunk 2's gameplay significantly departs from its predecessor in some ways, as it's more focused on the macro management of a city that's survived an apocalypse rather than the micromanaging of resources for basic survival. After getting an extended hands-off look at Frostpunk 2 in action last year, I said it "scales its challenges and gameplay systems up while also holding on to the ethical dilemmas and emphasis on consequences that made the original so great (and depressing.)."
