Xbox Game Pass Launches in 8 New Countries, 7 More Great Games Coming

Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Game Pass gaming subscription service to 8 New Countries.
Launched back in June 2017, Xbox Game Pass is a new digital gaming membership giving users an unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games for just $9.99 USD per month.

Fans in Argentina, Brazil, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, South Africa, Turkey and UAE can now take advantage of Xbox Game Pass starting September 1. In totality, the service is now available in 31 markets around the world.

Xbox Game Pass is part of our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games and to discover new experiences. We believe more is better, and each month with Xbox Game Pass, we add a new set of games to the catalog so you’ve always got something new to play.

Fans in new markets can start the 14-day free trial from September 1, and enjoy over 100 great games.

Additionally, Microsoft is also adding seven great new games to the catalog on August 29, and September 1.

Here is the list of upcoming games on Xbox Game Pass beginning August 29, 2017.

ReCore Definitive Edition
ReCore DE is coming – and it’s coming right to Xbox Game Pass!  ReCore is an ambitious action/adventure title that puts you in the shoes of Joule, accompanied by her three incredible corebot companions, as you traverse the dystopian world of Far Eden. Battle a wide array of enemies, complete side quests, and solve challenging puzzles in this innovative 3D platforming experience.
Metro: Last Light Redux
The post-apocalyptic fun continues in September with Metro: Last Light Redux, an absolute FPS gem from our friends at Deep Silver. Last Light lands you in Moscow in the year 2034, where you play as the character Artyom, navigating the Moscow metro tunnels and combating a hearty mix of human and mutant adversaries.  Blending in strong survival and strategy elements, Metro is a compelling sequel to the FPS classic Metro 2033 and an experience Xbox Game Pass members will not want to miss.
Fable II
Also coming to Xbox Game Pass in September is the legendary action RPG, Fable II, published by our very own Microsoft Studios.  You play as Sparrow, a young child (you can choose male or female) on a journey to gain vengeance against the evil Lucien.  Combat enemies, complete side missions, and find allies on your way to becoming a true hero.  With both single player and co-op modes, September is a great time to explore the magical open world of Albion.
Garou: Mark of the Wolves
Xbox Game Pass’ stable of awesome fighting games gets a boost in September with the NEOGEO classic, Garou: Mark of the Wolves.  Fight with one of 12 characters in Arcade mode, defeat both bosses, and become the King of Fighters.  Or, find a friend and battle it out for couch co-op supremacy.  If you’re a fan of Fatal Fury, or just classic fighting games in general, you are going to love getting your rounds in with Garou.
10 Second Ninja X
Requiring skill, speed, and precision, 10 Second Ninja X delivers a heck of a lot of fun and plenty of challenge to Xbox Game Pass members.  The premise is simple – you have 10 seconds, a sword, and three shurikens to complete each of the 100 levels in this awesome platformer from our friends at Curve Digital.  Explore the different paths to accomplishing each level’s objectives, unlock costumes, gather achievements and find all nine collectible items as you work your way from Level 1 to Level 100.  You only get 10 seconds per level, but we won’t be surprised if you lose whole days chasing victory in 10 Second Ninja this month.
Curve Digital is also giving Xbox Game Pass members access to Hue this September, another terrific Indie puzzle-platformer from our [email protected] program.  Hue is both the game title and the name of your main character, who is on a mission to bring color to an otherwise monochrome world and solve the mystery of Hue’s lost mother.  Read letters from Hue’s mother, learn to control the colors you progressively unlock, and leverage those colors to solve challenging puzzles.  With a unique and engaging art style, Hue is a must-play in Xbox Game Pass.
The Bridge
As if your brain wasn’t getting enough of a workout, the brilliant minds at The Astrophysicists Guild bring you The Bridge.  A 2D puzzler, The Bridge is tons of fun and very engaging.  And while the puzzles will keep you thinking, it may be the black-and-white art design we love most about this game.  The Bridge feels like an artist’s sketchbook, with each puzzle occupying a single screen, which allows you to closely analyze each level and decipher the best path to completion.  Just don’t be tricked into thinking logic alone will help you succeed in The Bridge – without a fair amount of finesse, and meticulous execution, you may find you need multiple attempts to solve each puzzle and complete the game.
