At X019, Microsoft announced that a number of games were joining Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Life Is Strange: Episode 5. However, that's not all that's coming to the service. The company didn't reveal all of its cards and dropped another surprise today. No, Untitled Goose Game isn't that surprise because we already knew about it last week.
Pillars of Eternity, the incredible role-playing game (RPG) from Obsidian Entertainment, is coming to Xbox Game Pass on December 19. This was just revealed in an Xbox Wire (opens in new tab) post by the company.
If you haven't played the game, be sure to check it out in a few days. That's also when The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt drops so there's going to be some competition. If you want a truly unique experience where every choice matters, you should go with Pillars of Eternity because all of your actions have consequences.

Console only, then? Please clarify with these news.
Yeah they said 'game pass for Xbox'. Kinda weird though, you'd expect both versions to come up on game pass.
Hell yes. Been waiting for this.
Nice, never got a chance to play this on PC so I'm glad to get the opportunity now.
