Microsoft have announced a few more games that will be added to the Xbox Game Pass along with the Gears 5 Ultimate Edition which will be available on September 6th for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, everyone else gets the Standard Edition on September 10th.
Tomorrow, September 5th, will see the rogue-lite metroidvania game Dead Cells added to the service. It’s a bit of a classic, we gave it 10/10 in our review.
With incredibly satisfying gameplay, a constant stream of unlocks, and a world that challenge every cell of your being, Dead Cells is a must own for anyone who likes even one aspect of what has been mentioned here. Every success will fill you with endorphins, every failure will inspire you to get better. When you finally take out the final boss you will be elated. It is here that Dead Cells lets you know that it is just the beginning, there are a few more go around yet, and each one gets harder and harder. This is the kind of game that can last you forever, you just have to let it beat you in the head a few times.
The same day will also see another pair of classic games arriving as Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 will be added in their extra shiny remastered HD editions.
September 6th sees Gears 5 plus Creature in the Well, a top-down, pinball-inspired, hack-and-slash dungeon crawler that has also been announced for Nintendo Switch.
Later in the month gunfight dungeon crawler Enter the Gungeon will be included, as will Gonner Blüeberry Edition. I’ve never heard of that game, it was released eleven months ago but seems to have passed us by, but I have found a trailer for it and it has a rockin’ soundtrack, check this out.
