A few days ago, Microsoft announced a number of games coming to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One. Unfortunately, the PC side was left out of the conversation until the Inside Xbox show which took place today. During the event, the various presenters announced that Bad North, Cities: Skylines, Dirt Rally 2.0, and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected are coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC soon.
While we knew about Bad North, we didn't know about Cities: Skylines, Dirt Rally 2.0, and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. If you missed our past post, you should know that Bad North is a real-time tactics roguelite where you defend your lands from Viking invaders. You can read about the other titles below.
Cities: Skylines is a city-building game that requires a lot of patience to master. Just like Sim City, it's all about balancing the budget and expanding only when you have enough resources to do so.
Dirt Rally 2.0
If you like the Forza Motorsport series, you'll love Dirt Rally 2.0. While it's not that different from Dirt Rally, it still features excellent handling and stunning courses.
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is a third-person action game that features an over-the-top story and weapons to match its bizarre nature. You basically have to save the world once again while destroying everything in your path. I think this one involves aliens or something. However, that's not the point of the Saints Row franchise. The point is to just have a ton of fun blowing stuff up.
I would recommend checking out all three because they're great. You'll spend hundreds of hours in Cities: Skylines alone. Keep in mind that certain games leave Xbox Game Pass from time to time, so if you like a game, make sure you purchase it right before it's replaced.
