Yesterday, it was announced that Shadow of the Tomb Raider was joining the Xbox Game Pass library on February 7. However, it appears the title has already been made available, so anyone with a current subscription can download it right now without purchasing it. As we mentioned earlier, both of the previous titles—Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and Rise of the Tomb Raider—are also available in the Xbox Game Pass catalog.
Additionally, two other titles that also had February 7 release dates on them, Pumped BMX Pro and The Walking Dead: Season 1 series are also available. So if you’ve been debating on buying that first episode of that popular zombie series, now you can enjoy the full five-episode season without paying anything.
While it might be a little unusual to release game on the subscription service a day earlier than promised, it should still serve as good news for those who have been waiting for the games to join Microsoft’s $10-per-month gaming service.Further reading: Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Video Games, Xbox, Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One
