A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced a number of great games coming to Xbox Game Pass at the beginning of October. However, it seems like that wasn't the complete list. This morning, the Xbox Game Pass Twitter account said that more were on the way. Secret Neighbor, Subnautica, and more will join the service in the coming days.

You can read about all the games below. Among these recent additions, The Outer Worlds and Secret Neighbor are probably the most prominent. It's an interesting mix of blockbusters and smaller titles, but there are still are few surprises here and there. Keep in mind that these games are only available on Xbox One.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill

Lonely Mountains: Downhill is basically Trials with bicycles. It's quite a challenging game that's surprisingly addictive.

Secret Neighbor

Secret Neighbor is the sequel to Hello Neighbor. However, this time around there's added multiplayer. A group of kids try to rescue their friend from the neighbor's creepy basement.

Secret Neighbor should join Xbox Game Pass on October 23.


This black-and-white game has to be completed in a minute. Well, that's impossible, but you'll have to keep on playing the game, unlocking new areas, in order to finally beat it in a minute.

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds is a first-person adventure game along the lines of Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout: New Vegas. It's a new franchise from the now-Microsoft-owned Obsidian Entertainment and it's garnering stellar reviews.

The Outer Worlds should join Xbox Game Pass on October 25. The game runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.


In Afterparty, you are Milo and Lola, recently deceased best friends who suddenly find themselves staring down an eternity in Hell.

Afterparty should join Xbox Game Pass on October 29.

Lego Star Wars III

Lego Star Wars III recounts the story of the prequels and is one of the biggest Lego games ever. Since it's an Xbox 360 game, it'll be available on Xbox One through backward compatibility.


Subnautica is a first-person survival game that requires you to explore the depth of an alien ocean. You'll have to survive by scavenging and hunting as you search for a way back.

Subnautica should join Xbox Game Pass on November 7. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced.

Usually, we recommend one or two games you have to play, but all of these titles are absolutely incredible. You have to play Minit, The Outer Worlds, and Secret Neighbor. There's no way around it. This is quite possibly one of the strongest months for Xbox Game Pass yet given the past additions.
