Killer Queen Black, Outer Wilds, and more join Xbox Game Pass at launch

Today, Microsoft hosted its first ever "ID@Xbox Game Pass" episode. It's not an expansion to the subscription service, but a show about all the smaller games coming to Xbox Game Pass soon. During the stream, the company announced that three new ID@Xbox titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass the same day they release on Xbox One. Killer Queen Black, Outer Wilds, and Blazing Chrome have garnered a lot of interest over the past few months, so Xbox Game Pass members are in for a treat.

Killer Queen Black

From Liquid Bit, Killer Queen Black is an intense multiplayer action-strategy platformer designed for up to eight players. Hop on the snail, hoard berries or wipe out the enemy's queen to claim victory. ​

Outer Wilds

Remember Outer Wilds? Outer Wilds is an exploration game about curiosity, roasting marshmallows, and unraveling the mysteries of the cosmos. ​

Blazing Chrome

In Blazing Chrome, the world is dominated by machines that threaten the few humans remaining with total extermination. ​ The show was filled with other behind-the-scenes looks as well. For example, we got a better look at Afterparty and Outer Wilds. Both of them look really good and rather unique.

ID@Xbox is bringing a lot of stellar games to Xbox One this year like Void Bastards, Operencia: The Stolen Sun, Supermarket Shriek, and The Good Life. All of these games will launch on Xbox Game Pass the same day they come out.
