Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service, which recently crossed 15 million subscribers three years after its launch is welcoming some new big games today. On Console and Android devices, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can now play Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep and Forsaken expansions.

Beyond Light, Destiny’s fifth expansion, will also join Xbox Game Pass on November 10, right for the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. The base Destiny 2 remains free-to-play on Xbox One and other platforms, but Xbox Game Pass members can get the best experience with free access to the game’s latest expansions.
Halo 3: ODST is also available on Xbox Game Pass for PC starting today, in addition to the Windows 10 Microsoft Store and Steam. This Halo 3 spinoff released back in 2008 on the Xbox 360 didn’t get the same level of critical acclaim as previous Halo games, but its campaign which features a team of human soldiers known as “Orbital Drop Shock Troopers” (ODST) instead of the usual Master Chief hero remains quite memorable.

Microsoft has also released a new update for Halo: MCC on PC and Console today, and we invite you to check out the full patch notes on this page. Now that Halo 3: ODST is out on PC, Halo 4 is next in line and we hope to see it released on PC before the end of the year. 343 Industries is still working on additional improvements for Halo: MCC on Console and PC, including support for cross-play multiplayer and mouse and keyboard input on Xbox One.
As a reminder, gamers who have yet to try Xbox Game Pass can get their first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1. The Ultimate tier now includes Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC, Xbox Live Gold, plus access to over 150 Xbox One games on Android thanks to Microsoft’s new Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) technology.
