Today, Remedy Entertainment revealed that Alan Wake was coming to Xbox Game Pass on May 21. It's unclear if this was to be revealed since the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account usually teases such announcements. Either way, it's happening!
Xbox Game Pass has also proven to be quite beneficial for DayZ. Today, developer Bohemia Interactive sent Windows Central the following press release.
DayZ reports hundreds of thousands of new players, after becoming available on the Xbox Game Pass... The hardcore survival game is flourishing now more than ever, and has become one of the Most Played games on Xbox. Game Pass users can access the game for free and they can also purchase the base game and its DLC for a discounted price... If you have yet to play DayZ, then the Game Pass is the perfect opportunity to try your hand at surviving this harsh post-apocalyptic wasteland. DayZ is an unforgiving, authentic, open-world sandbox online game where each one of 60 players on a server follows a single goal – to survive as long as they can, by all means necessary. Every decision matters – with no save games, and no extra lives, every mistake can be lethal.
It seems like another game, called Golf With Your Friends is also coming to Xbox Game Pass soon. It should be available on May 19 from the looks of it, when it launches on all platforms. Cities: Skylines may also be returning in a few days. Lastly, Xbox Game Pass for PC is getting Plebby Quest: The Crusades.
