Microsoft has just announced a major new addition to the Xbox Game Pass catalog during its Inside Xbox live show. Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the latest entry in the popular action-adventure franchise will be available on Xbox Game Pass starting this Thursday, February 7. The game will join Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition as well as its sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider, so that will make all the whole trilogy available for subscribers.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was released back on September 14, and it's actually quite surprising that Microsoft has been able to add the game to Xbox Game Pass so early. The game is about to get its fourth DLC, "The Price of Survival" on February 12th, and developer Eidos Montreal still has some more additional content in the pipeline.

This is in addition to Crackdown 3, the next Xbox One/Windows 10 exclusive to be released on February 15.
