35 upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles revealed at XO19 – The Witcher 3, Final Fantasy series, Halo: Reach & more

Microsoft have unveiled a huge set of games coming to Xbox Game Pass, with eight titles added to the library right now, eight more coming through the rest of 2019, and nineteen games that will be heading into the service in 2020.

With Black Friday on the horizon, the company are hoping to get a bunch of people to sign up. They’re offering 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just £1/$1/€1, which bundles together both Xbox and PC libraries with an Xbox Live Gold subscription into one single monthly fee. You know, when you aren’t a new subscriber picking it for next to nothing.

As always, you get a selection of third party titles, indie games, and Microsoft are sticking to their commitment to bring their first party games to the service. As part of that, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is now on the service, and in a few weeks on 3rd December, Halo: Reach’s The Master Chief Collection remaster will be joining it.
