January has already been a pretty big month for Xbox Game Pass, with titles like Just Cause 3 and Ark: Survival Evolved already having hit the service. But Microsoft isn't over: the company today teased four more games will be added to Xbox Game Pass' lineup before the month is out.

Microsoft didn't outright reveal what games are coming, but its teaser, posted to Twitter, makes it pretty clear (despite a cheeky bit of blurring) what's coming. This week, it appears we can expect both We Happy Few and Lego Movie: The Video Game to be added to the catalog. The following week, it looks as if Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Saints Row: The Third to make an appearance.

Updated January 16, 2019: Microsoft has formally unveiled the next titles headed to Xbox Game Pass, following its teaser. We Happy Few and The LEGO Movie: Videogame hit the service on January 17, while Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Saints Row: The Third debut on January 24.

  • Resident evil 7, please 😁
  • I got it for $20 during black friday. It's not bad. First person camera is ok, but everything is just dark. RE2's camera angle is better but it's also very dark is almost every scene. But at least you are blasting zombies in RE2 which is way more fun. Though RE7 does have that scary family to deal with lol.
  • Cool, I might actually get around to playing We Happy Few then.
  • January has been a pretty disappointing month for gamepass additions. Shadow of Mordor is pretty good though.
  • Its not as bad as some other months in 2018. But if this is true about We Happy Few and SoM then it shouldnt be too bad. Plus Crackdown 3 next month. Hope it goes back to its roots like the first game.
