Boss battler 'Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption' joins Xbox Game Pass this week

Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is a boss-rush game which centers around defeating the "Seven Deadly Sins." The main mechanic in the game has to be its "downgrades." Before each battle, you must sacrifice an attribute and "level down" to enter combat.

This makes each encounter that much more difficult. You can think of it as "opposite Dark Souls," because you're leveling down instead of leveling up. According to the developer, skilled players should be able to complete the game is six to eight hours, but the rest of us might be stuck for a while. However, that's not all. According to a press release by Microsoft, Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption is joining Xbox Game Pass in a few days. You can read the information provided to us below.

  • Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption
  • October 18
  • Xbox Game Pass
  • Face eight terrifying bosses in this boss battler ARPG, the first seven of which are based on one of the deadly sins that can be fought in any order. You must choose aspects of your character to weaken (stats, equipment, abilities) before facing each boss, where each one will be tougher than the last as you wage war against sin itself in this thrilling and challenging experience. Unlocks for Xbox Game Pass members as well on October 18.

It's great to see that the Xbox Game Pass library keeps on growing. A lot of gamers have been clamoring to play this title, so this makes it even more accessible. Those who may not want to try it due to its daunting difficulty might give it a go. I know there are many gamers out there who are apprehensive of such experiences.

When Dark Souls released, everyone said it was the most difficult game ever created. I avoided the title as a result of this because I didn't want to purchase a game I would never be able to finish. The same applies for many others out there. Years later, I played Dark Souls Remastered and absolutely loved it. As a result of this, I bought the other entries in the series too. Had Xbox Game Pass existed back then, and Dark Souls was on it, I would've picked it up way sooner. Hopefully people will feel the same way about Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption.
