Microsoft has announced a new selection of games that will be added to the Xbox Game Pass library. Recall that next month will be an action in the post-apocalyptic world of State of Decay 2 – it will be immediately available by subscription. Even on the release, Xbox Game Pass users will receive a futuristic sports game Laser League.
Starting on May 1, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to play Overcooked !, The Escapists, Homefront: The Revolution, Unmechanical: Exntended, Sonic & Knuckles and Pro Evolution Soccer 2018. The latter will only be available until August 31st. In addition, from April 26 to May 8, those who have never subscribed to the Xbox Game Pass will be able to purchase membership for a month and gain access to almost two hundred projects. Service fully works only on Xbox One, but Windows 10 users too can become its participants – in this case they will only be available games with support for the Xbox Play Anywhere function.
State of Decay 2 will go on sale on May 22 and will be immediately available to subscribers of the Xbox Game Pass. The main goal of the game is to survive in a zombie apocalypse. You have to create a community with unique survivors who have their own prehistory and motivation, and develop the base, make outings and take care of their people. All your actions will affect the gameplay, so your world and the worlds of your friends in the State of Decay 2 will be very different. The game will also offer a cross-platform co-op, so you can unite on your Xbox One with other survivors on Windows 10.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 needs no introduction. This football simulator supports the multiplayer mode “3 by 3”, so you can gather a company of friends in one match. As already mentioned above, the project will be available on the Xbox Game Pass only until August 31st.
Super-speed arcade multiplayer shooter Laser League goes on sale on May 10 and will immediately be available to subscribers of the Xbox Game Pass. The game was created by Roll7 studio, known for OlliOlli and Not a Hero, which transferred its iconic gameplay to a new project. In the Laser League, you can fight 4-on-4 on the local network or 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 online in bright international stadiums with especially complex laser cards. To find the perfect strategic combination of six different classes, you will need to team up with your friends.
Overcooked is a chaotic cooperative game in which you cook with your friends. Visitors to your restaurant are very hungry, so you need to quickly serve them. Players are given a choice of some fancy chefs, in the role of which they will go to the kitchen, where there will be a hard test of your skills of interaction and coordination. We warn: there will be a lot of cries.
The Escapists is a jailbreak simulator in which all the beauty is in execution, not the result. You can freely explore the prison, establish relationships with prisoners, build up strength in the gym or read books to improve skills to carefully plan your escape. The choice is yours: secretly sneak up and go free without being noticed, or make weapons from improvised means and arrange massacres.
Well, the shooter Homefront: The Revolution is widely known for a boring and monotonous gameplay, an absurd storyline. In the role of Ethan Brady, you must master the art of guerrilla warfare – sabotage, penetration and deception – and fight in the war-torn suburb of Philadelphia.
Unmechanical: Extended is an adventure puzzle game that combines puzzle solving, enticing research and an exciting atmosphere. Players need to help a small robot get out of the trap of an underground complex.
In Sonic & Knuckles, the famous hedgehog and echidna combine to disrupt the plans of the treacherous Dr. Eggman. The goal of the heroes is to find the priceless emerald and save the island of Angel.
