March sets up as big month for Xbox Games Pass with Sea of Thieves, Rise of Tomb Raider, 6 more titles
Eight new Xbox games will be added to the Xbox Games Pass catalog next month, including the much-anticipated Xbox/Windows 10 exclusive Sea of Thieves. The pirate adventure game will be available for subscribers on on March 20, marking Microsoft’s new commitment to bring all future Microsoft Studios to Xbox Games Pass on launch day.
Super Lucky’s Tale, the 3D platformer video game also released as an Xbox/Windows 10 exclusive last Fall will also join the Xbox Games Pass catalog next month. This title was released on the same day as Forza Motorsport 7, and it’s fair to say that it didn’t get the same level of attention. Adding the game to Xbox Game Pass may finally give it a much bigger audience.
Another great addition to Xbox Games Pass is Rise of the Tomb Raider, the critically-acclaimed sequel to the 2013 reboot. The game was recently enhanced for the Xbox One X with three different visual modes, including a high frame mode delivering that 60 FPS sweet spot.
Survival horror fans should also check out the episodic game Resident Evil: Revelations 2 next month. Episode 1 will remain free-to-play for everyone, but Xbox Games Pass subscribers will get access to the three other story episodes, the two additional bonus episodes as well as the Hunk character in Raid mode. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a great game to play in local co-op, and it marked the franchise’s return to its survival horror roots after the controversial Resident Evil 6 (also available with Xbox Games Pass, along with Resident Evil HD Remaster and Resident Evil Zero).
Four other games complete the March Xbox Games Pass update: There is the supernatural thriller Oxenfree, the side-scrolling shooter The Final Station, fishing simulator Euro Fishing and the Xbox 360 oldie Sonic CD. These are really cool additions overall, and if you have yet to try Xbox Games Pass we really invite you to sign up for the 14-days free trial.Further reading: Resident Evil Revelations 2, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Sea of Thieves, Super Lucky's Tale, Video Games, Xbox Games Pass, Xbox One
