Microsoft announced 11 new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in October, some of which are available starting today. These latest additions include a variety of genres, including shooters, fighting games, and fishing games. The most notable addition is Outriders, which is finally coming to PC.
Starting today, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play indie-developed game Into the Pit and third-person shooter Outriders for PC. Into the Pit, a completely new addition to the service, comes to cloud, console, and PC. Outriders already launched on Game Pass for console, so now it’s more widely available than it already was.

Meanwhile, turn-based Echo Generation launches on day one for Xbox consoles, cloud, and PC. Lastly, Everspace 2 gives players a glimpse into a space shooter experience with a game preview.
