Xbox Game Pass’ October Line-Up Is Unskippable

Best story-driven games

If there was ever a time to punch in to the Xbox Game Pass craze, it’d be this October. Why? Because Microsoft is just about ready to roll out the big guns.

Xbox Game Pass isn’t exactly short on day-one exclusives, nor is it short on great indies and RPGs, either, which makes it one of the best subscription-based platforms in gaming, period. The fact that October will help fortify its position on the podium by adding a slew of triple-A games will, of course, convince potential buyers to cave in and no doubt purchase a subscription. Question is, what games are actually releasing this month?

Heading the October line-up is A Plague Tale: Requiem, a day-one exclusive that will no doubt garner the vast majority of subscribers’ eyes on October 18th. And not just this, but Scorn, a story-driven biopunk thriller, and Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2, an award-winning episodic adventure, will also be making way for the platform over the coming weeks. And as luck would have it, these are but three of the nine titles that are expected to roll out to Game Pass over the next four weeks.
