Microsoft unveils the list of games that will arrive in the Xbox Game Pass catalog in January 2022. Which will you test?
2021 is a thing of the past, it’s time for 2022, and new games! It is on this state of mind that Microsoft reveals to us which games will arrive in the Xbox Game Pass catalog for this first half of January, with a few more than interesting titles as a bonus. Here is the full list of added games:
- Gorogoa (Cloud, Console and PC) – January 4
- Olija (Cloud, Console and PC) – January 4
- The Pedestrian (Cloud, Console and PC) – January 4
- Embr (Cloud, Console and PC) – January 6
- Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Console and PC) EA Play – January 6
- Outer Wilds (Cloud, Console and PC) – January 6
- Spelunky 2 (Console and PC) – January 13
- The Anacrusis (Console and PC) – January 13
For this first half of the month, Microsoft is focusing exclusively on indie games, with the exception of the collection Mass Effect Legendary Edition. This is the remaster of the first three titles of the legendary RPG franchise, with additional character customization options, and a host of modern features, in addition to visual improvements.
We also note the arrival in the catalog of The Anacrusis, a retro game that particularly caught our eye when it was announced at E3. This is an online multiplayer game in which you have to fight against aliens on board a ’70s-looking spaceship. It will be available from the day of its release as a Game Preview.
