Yesterday, the upgraded version of Halo: Reach launched on Xbox One and PC. While it's available on Steam, if you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can play the game through your subscription. Just downloaded the add-on for Halo: The Master Chief Collection. However, if you thought that there weren't any surprises left for Xbox Game Pass after the tremendous X019 reveals, you'd be wrong. Today, Microsoft announced even more games coming to the service very soon and there are a number of surprises in there.
Titles like Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker and Tom Clancy's The Division may be the stars of the show, but almost all of these games appear to be compelling experiences. You can read about them below.
