It’s a Diverse Roster for Xbox Game Pass

Just because Black Friday passed, you thought you had plenty of games to play for the holidays. You were wrong, and Xbox is here to remind you of how wrong you were. This coming month, players can look forward to additional gems on the Xbox Game Pass service.

For the price of $9.99, players will gain access to The Gardens Between, Mutant Year Zero, and Strange Brigade. That’s right; for less than one-tenth the cost of retail, Xbox One owners will have access to all three games. Whether you’re a fan of third-person shooters, isometric adventures, or turn-based strategy, there’s a little something for everybody. And that’s stacked on top of the games announced at X018. Gamers have plenty to look forward to, this December, which is why Black Friday was just the beginning.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new titles announced for Xbox Game Pass:

The Gardens Between (November 29)

Follow two best friends Arina and Frendt who fall into a surreal world full of dreamlike garden islands. Together they’ll embark on a nostalgic journey through a world built around objects from their childhood, lighting constellations and illuminating threads from a time when friendship was the most important thing in the world. Manipulate time to solve puzzles and traverse each precious memory to reach the summit of each island in this single-player puzzle adventure.

Mutant Year Zero (December 4)

A tactical adventure game with turn-based combat and real-time exploration of a post-apocalyptic world, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden puts you in command of a unique squad of mutant soldiers as you scavenge through the remains of civilization to survive. From the creators of Hitman and PayDay, experience a mix of story, exploration, stealth, and strategy in the brutal environment of a decimated planet Earth as your band of heroes embark on a quest to discover the legend of Eden.

Strange Brigade (December 6)

Join an elite agency of extraordinary adventurers and investigate the darkest corners of Egypt, where mythological menaces manifest! Strange Brigade offers a rip-roaring, 1930s-style campaign full of peril, intrigue, and good old derring-do for one to four players as you tackle an army of mummified monsters! Solve mind-bending puzzles, defy dastardly traps, unearth incredible treasure in a mysterious, ancient landscape and use the most marvelous firearms known to man in thrilling third-person combat to defeat the witch queen Seteki and send her petrifying minions back to the afterlife.
