Dishonored 2, World War Z lead the next Xbox Game Pass update

Microsoft has confirmed what games Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to get their hands on as the latest batch has been confirmed. From October 3rd Dishonored 2 will make its presence known on the service, allowing you to play as either Emily or Corvo in an attempt to reclaim the throne from dissidents.

If that’s not your thing but taking out hordes of zombies is then you’re in luck as World War Z will be available on Xbox Game Pass from October 10th. If you fancy something a bit more relaxed and laid back then Yooka Laylee may be exactly what you need, as that will join the service on the same day. It’ll prep you for Yooka Laylee and The Impossible Lair which is out next week.


Maybe you want to patrol the Mojave and wish for a nuclear winter instead? Unlikely you’ll be doing that in reality but you can give it a go as Fallout: New Vegas will be added on October 17th. On the same day there will be a brand new game release as Felix The Reaper makes its debut. This game is described as a romantic comedy about the life of death. Rounding out the offerings is Panzer Dragoon Orta which, like Fallout: New Vegas, is a backward compatibility title.
