Nothing too major. I was leaning towards buying Infernax so that's nice.

Dreamscaper, Telling lies, Edge of eternity seem okay.

Contrast is good but I've had it for a while on PS4.

Not great (although full Ark could be worth messing with). Not many new games out at the moment though, and i doubt they could of got Dying Light 2.

Surprised contrast wasn't already on game pass, if I am not mistaken it was a pretty nice little game by compulsion games with the shadows etc, I genuinely quite liked it :)

Not sure what a lot of the games are, but it doesn't really matter too much this month as elden ring and dying light 2 :)

Yep. MS owned studio. But they didn't publish Contrast. Some double fine games weren't on GP for a while either

Crossfire X to scratch that cod itch. Have no expectations because its look like a Play-Doh csgo but hopefully it will be a bit fun.

The rest is meh.

What's with Crossfire? You can play the first part of the single player but you have to pay for the 2nd or something?

Crossfire X campaign costs money online is free like Halo Infinite.

Crossfire X(what an awful fucking name) will be interesting to see how Remedy makes an FPS campaign.

Not a great drop, but not filled with shitty cloud rereleased filler games at least.

LOL@the haters saying "not worth $15/month" yea this drop isn't, it's all the other content that the service STILL HAS.

Contrast 💓!

One of the most beautiful indie games ever created.

I wish Some day come to physical edition or a Nintendo switch versión.

DLC isn’t part of GamePass and never was.

Go Go Neo Rangers!
regardless its pretty bad, the medium and ff12 are also leaving Gamepass
I mean thats like your opinion man. There are plenty of good games on that list.

Contrast, Skul and Dreamscaper are all considered good. Skul has sold over a million copies alone.

So I would have to disagree that its "pretty bad."
 
Although I have gamepass and I love it so far it’s going into the direction of a true Netflix, a large library but super mediocre. Every month now they slowly remove actual good games and just insert indie trash as a replacement. It’s only a matter of time before people will start to unsubscribe.

contrast released in 2013

comparing the games coming to the ones leaving is a disappointment.

Obviously to each their own.

What does contrast releasing in 2013 have to do with anything?

FF12 released in 2006 so by that logic who cares? Its old.

Those are updates. They're not paid DLC. Game Pass doesn't include paid DLC (like the Forza stuff). But you don't actually use the service and just troll GP threads, so we wouldn't expect you to know that.
You are so full of shit, and it's no surprise you keep doubling down on being wrong. Don't worry, I'll put you on ignore so you can continue to mewl your falsehoods to anyone who wants to waste their time with your pathetic nonsense.



With regard to the list, there isn't a lot being added that I'm interested in, but I still have quite a bit in my Play Later queue. I had been meaning to check out the Medium, so I'm really glad they announce the leaving soon stuff early enough.
