The official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account shared a preview of several new video games that are set to join the subscription service before the end of the month.
While pixelated, it seems as if the upcoming games are We Happy Few, The LEGO Movie: The Video Game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and Saint’s Row: The Third. Some contact information was also censored in the tweet but it’s probably best not to try and work out what that is.

We Happy Few isn’t too much of a surprise given that Microsoft purchased the studio behind it, Compulsion Games, last year. The LEGO Movie: The Video Game’s addition is probably a smart marketing move to get people hooked on this game before its sequel comes out later next month while Shadow of Mordor should please people who were disappointed by the recent removal of several Lord of the Rings games from the Microsoft Store. Saint’s Row: The Third was incredibly popular when it launched so it’s generally just a positive thing to see major titles such as this come to the Xbox Game Pass program.
