As of October 22, Hello Neighbour, Observer, Outlast, and Dead Island Riptide: Definitive Edition are available on the service. We've previously praised Observer as one of Xbox One's best horror titles, while Outlast is an equally frightening experience, especially if among the faint-hearted.

These titles join an already strong lineup of Xbox Game Pass horror games, including Microsoft's newly-released State of Decay 2, Layers of Fear, and the Resident Evil franchise. If you're looking for more spooky titles this Halloween, don't miss our roundup of Xbox One's best horror games.
