Marvel's Avengers see out a strong September

Although it's technically arriving one day before October, Avengers is coming to the service on September 30th. Coming with the full game, this gives you the chance to play Kamala Khan's story.

This is sure to give a nice bump to the playerbase too, making a fun multiplayer experience.

A few more

There were a few games we missed last week, some new releases and some more obscure ones.

We're happy to say that the following games are also coming to Game Pass:

  • Moonglow Bay - October 7th - Console and PC
  • Into the Pit - October 19th - Console and PC
  • Bassmaster Fishing 2022 - October 28th - Console and PC

New Games and New Releases!

There are currently only four confirmed titles for October but fear not, it's still early days. The titles that we're aware of are three brand new releases and one addition. Here's what to expect and when;

  • Pheonix Point - 1 October - Console
  • Back 4 Blood - 12 October - Console, PC, and Cloud
  • The Riftbreaker - 14 October - Console and PC
  • Age of Empires 4 - 27 October - PC and Cloud

It's incredible to have a third-party AAA game like Back 4 Blood launch on this service on release day. Age of Empires 4 is also a highly anticipated title and subscribers won't have to pay any extra to enjoy it as all first-party titles go straight into Game Pass.

Games Leaving this month

It's still a bit too early to tell which games are set to leave Game Pass in October. Microsoft will make the first proper batch of announcements towards the end of September.
