What you need to know

  • Several new games are being added to Xbox Game Pass for the month of October 2022. 
  • Some of these games, like A Plague Tale: Requiem and Scorn, were previously announced as heading to the service at launch. 
  • There's also some new games such as Chivalry 2.

As we head into the holiday period, a few more games are being added to Microsoft's mainline gaming subscription service. 

As shared on Xbox Wire (opens in new tab), a few titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass in October 2022, including previously-announced games like A Plague Tale: Requiem and Scorn. The former is a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence, and tells the story of siblings Amicia and Hugo as they once again struggle to survive against hordes of rats and nefarious human pursuers. 

Meanwhile, Scorn is something of a weirder game, a first-person Giger-inspired title that's heavy on exploration and puzzles. Notably, both games are current-generation exclusive, meaning they're built for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and high-end PCs. 

Another highlight is Medieval multiplayer title Chivalry 2, which allows players to take part in massive field and siege battles across fictional lands. 

Here's the full list of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the first half of October 2022:
