Just Cause 4 joins Xbox Game Pass, more coming soon (update)

Updated March 6, 2019: Aside from Just Cause 4, Lego Batman 2 also joined Xbox Game Pass last night. However, next week F1 2018 and Fallout 4 are also coming to the service. Fallout 4 joined Xbox Game Pass a few months ago, but was removed. It's great to see that it's making a return because usually that doesn't happen.

The Just Cause series consists of over-the-top third-person action games which revolve around destroying everything in your path. While the titles may not have the best stories, they're a lot of fun to play because the goal is to constantly blow up buildings and vehicles. Just Cause 4 continues this tradition.

According to numerous reports on Reddit and other forms of social media, Just Cause 4 is available on Xbox Game Pass right now. This is somewhat of a surprise because the game launched a few months ago. Usually you have to wait another couple of months for these "AAA" blockbusters to make an appearance.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service which costs $10 every month. It gives you immediate access to over a hundred games on your Xbox One or Xbox One X. Just Cause 4 is somewhat of a visual showcase because it achieves native 4K resolution on Microsoft's new console.

In our review, we said, "After the struggles of Just Cause 3, we were expecting Avalanche Studios to come out swinging with Just Cause 4. Even so, we're still absolutely amazed at how incredible of an experience they've been able to craft."
