Among Us was hardly an expensive game as it was, coming in at about $5 on PC, but for Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers that haven't found a reason to try the game out yet, this is a fantastic addition. If you haven't played Among Us, it's easily recommended for its unique gameplay that pits players against each other just as much as it forces them to work together.
