Xbox Game Pass dropping 7 new free games for October

Xbox Game Pass dropping 7 new free games for October

Xbox Game Pass users will soon gain access to 7 more games, including multiple day one releases.

The latest batch of Xbox Game Pass additions have arrived, and I for one, cannot wait to dive in.

With many gamers saying they can no longer justify dropping £70 on a brand new unfamiliar game, subscription services are rising in popularity. Both PlayStation Plus and Xbox Game Pass are prime examples and while both are excellent, it’s probably fair to say that Game Pass is perhaps quicker to nab and add newly launched games, whether that’s as a day one release or a couple of weeks after launch day. The latest line-up proves just that.

Starfield is available on Game Pass. Take a look at our favourite wins and fails below.

As of right now, you can download 2014’s Like A Dragon: Ishin! on cloud, console, and PC. Then, on 19 October (tomorrow), you can nab F1 Manager 2023 also on cloud, console, and PC. On 24 October, users will be able to download and enjoy day one release Cities: Skylines II. The bad news is that it’s PC only, but an undeniably huge win for PC users. The long-awaited sequel once again allows players to create their own thriving metropolis.

Dead Space is then coming to EA Play on 26 October (cloud, pc, and Xbox Series X/S), so you’ll need to be subscribed to EA Play or Game Pass Ultimate in order to gain access. I’m then very excited about the addition of Frog Detective: The Entire Mystery (cloud and console) also on 26 October. The collection includes all three Frog Detective cases.

It’s going to be a busy day because also on 26 October, you can download the recent indie release Mineko’s Night Market. The game didn’t receive the best reviews, but if you’re happy to wander around followed by cute kitties, this may still be the cosy game for you.

Back to the day one releases, Headbangers: Rhythm Royale (cloud, console, and PC) lands on 31 October - the same day that day one release Jusant (cloud, console, and PC) also arrives. All in all, a great month.
