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.
