A few days ago, Microsoft revealed a number of ID@Xbox games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the near future. While Demon's Tilt and Genesis Noir seem like intriguing experiences, gamers really wanted to know which AAA titles would be joining the service in October. Luckily, we just got that answer.

Today, Xbox Wire (opens in new tab) revealed more games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the coming days. Out of the lot, Dishonored 2, Fallout: New Vegas, and Panzer Dragoon Orta seem to be the highlights. You can read about all of the upcoming games below. We already knew that Yooka-Laylee is coming to Xbox Game Pass on October 10, and Felix the Reaper should hit the service at launch.

Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 is a first-person stealth action game that picks up many years after the events of the original. The throne has been taken by a usurper, and it's up to you to get it back. You can either play as Corvo, or step into the shoes of his daughter, the Empress, and you go from one level to the next. The best part is that you don't have to kill anyone in the game because you can always knock them out.

Dishonored 2 should join Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One on October 3. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced.

World War Z

World War Z is a shooter that requires you to embark on various missions and take out hordes of zombies. It loosely follows the events of the film, but focuses on the day-to-day stuggles of various people. Usually, games based on films are terrible, but World War Z is an incredible game. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already.

World War Z should join Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One on October 10. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced.

Fallout: New Vegas

What can be said about Fallout: New Vegas that hasn't already been said? The game is a first-person shooter that might be the best entry in the Fallout franchise. It's also made by Obsidian Entertainment, so it justifies Microsoft's acquisition of the team. From the vast open-world setting to the memorable story, there's a lot to love about this game. You need to play this one!

Fallout: New Vegas should join Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One on October 17.

Panzer Dragoon Orta

Panzer Dragoon Orta is another installment in the cult-classic franchsie. You step into the shoes of a young girl named Orta and ride on the back of a fearsome dragon as you fight to save the world from destruction.

Panzer Dragoon Orta should join Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One on October 17.

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is another first-person shooter from Obsidian Entertainment. While it's also coming to other platforms, you'll have to purchase it for $60 there. Luckily, it's going to be available through Xbox Game Pass, so you don't have to spend a lot for access. In many ways, it's like Fallout: New Vegas in space.

The Outer Worlds should join Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One on October 25. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced.

The genres of these games vary, but all of them seem like worthy experiences. We're most excited for Fallout: New Vegas because it's one of the best games ever made. However, you can't go wrong with any of these titles. Xbox Game Pass just keeps on giving!
