Dead Rising 3, DiRT Rally, Limbo and more hit Xbox Game Pass next month

Microsoft has announced the latest expansion of Xbox Game Pass – its Xbox Live-based subscription service providing access to a library of digital titles for a flat monthly fee. After the service's public debut back in June, Xbox Game Pass has received its second monthly refresh, adding seven new games to its offerings.

A range of Xbox One titles are making an appearance in the Xbox Game Pass library next month: DiRT Rally, Dead Rising 3, Limbo, So Many Me, Ultratron and Pharaonic. Metal Slug XX is also being added as a backward compatible Xbox 360 title, joining its predecessor, Metal Slug 3, in the collection.

Among the highlights of next month's titles is DiRT Rally – a realistic rally experience from Codemasters. Dead Rising 3 is another unmissable classic for fans of action/adventure games – a title which was praised at launch for the pure scale of its sprawling zombie-filled city. On the indie front, Limbo is an iconic platformer originally from the Xbox 360 era, re-released with enhancements for the Xbox One.

Each of these new titles will be available from August 1, 2017, for those subscribed to Xbox Game Pass. Subscriptions for the service start at $9.99, with an ever-growing library, currently 100 titles large. Make sure to let us know what you think of this month's additions in the comments section.
