Microsoft has announced the next batch of games coming to its popular Xbox Game Pass service. Seven new titles are coming to the subscription service in January, including Injustice 2 and Torchlight III.
Injustice 2 will be available on console, PC, and Microsoft’s cloud gaming service on January 7. The DC Comics fighting game features a large roster of superheroes, as well as a particularly strong single-player story. In our review of the game, we said “Injustice 2 takes subtle, but mighty steps forward from its predecessor. Everything is faster, more fluid, and refined.”
The other big-ticket item this month is Torchlight III, which comes to consoles and the cloud service on January 14. Released last June, Torchlight 3 is a top-down action RPG with dungeon-crawling elements.
Both console owners and cloud users will get indie game The Little Acre and the eFootball PES 2021 season update on January 7. Anyone with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate has access to the cloud gaming service, which comes to iOS this year, as part of their subscription.
What Remains of Edith Finch, Neoverse, and YIIK: A Postmodern RPG all come to the PC version of Game Pass on January 14. What Remains of Edith Finch, widely considered to be an indie standout of last decade, is the highlight among the trio of games.
Four games are leaving the service on January 15: Tekken 7, FTL: Faster Than Light, My Friend Pedro, and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. As always, subscribers can purchase the games for 20% off if they want to keep playing them once they leave Game Pass.
