As we celebrate entering pre-spooky month with the arrival of September, Xbox is giving us something more to look forward to with the latest Xbox Game Pass-specific news. With an incredibly busy August adding tons of excellent games to Xbox Game Pass, September has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, Xbox has now revealed the games heading to Xbox Game Pass in Sept. 2021 (opens in new tab), which will continue to grow the service with new titles and increased variety.
The highlight of this month's additions is undoubtedly Final Fantasy XIII, Surgeon Simulator 2: Access All Areas, incredible-looking indie The Artful Escape, and much more. There's something for everyone here, but this time around the additions are mostly dominated by indie titles. Still, the best Xbox Game Pass games continue to face increasingly challenging competition, as Xbox Game Pass adds new entries to its growing roster.
The games on this list can head everywhere that Xbox Game Pass is available, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. It's easy to lose track of everything coming to and leaving from Xbox Game Pass, which is why we've got you covered.
