Xbox Game Pass members loved the stunningly realistic, world-class simulation basketball and engaging Spike Lee MyCareer story that NBA 2K16 had to offer — it was one of the most-played games in Xbox Game Pass when we launched last Summer.
Well, consider the ante upped this February as the critically acclaimed NBA 2K17 enters the Xbox Game Pass catalog and brings everything you loved about NBA 2K16, plus so much more. NBA 2K17 once again delivers all 30 NBA-licensed franchises and arenas, as well as an even deeper roster of international and classic teams and players. And as fans of the franchise have come to expect, NBA 2K17 delivers perhaps the best single-player career experience in MyCAREER. If you’re into developing dynasties and managing front offices, NBA 2K17’s stellar MyGM mode might be right up your alley.
The next level leaps are most evident in MyTeam, a deep and diverse game mode that offers you the opportunity to build your very own NBA dream team, complete a multitude of mini-games and challenges, and take on the computer or players online in competitive matchmaking.
Do yourself a favor and make some time to drop a few dimes, splash a few threes, and throw down a sick dunk or two in NBA 2K17 — the ball’s in your court! And if you really love NBA 2K17, check out the daily updated rosters, NBA matchups, and other great features in NBA 2K18, available for purchase today in the Microsoft Store.
With WWE 2K17’s addition to Xbox Game Pass on February 1, members can dive into a new round of more than 130 WWE Superstars, Legends and Hall of Famers, classic matches, fan-favorite creation options, and even more available via DLC, your favorite WWE-centric content is almost certain to be found in WWE 2K17.
Have you dreamed of entering the ring? If so, WWE 2K17’s MyCareer mode will help you launch your own path to digital stardom. You can also create your own WWE rivalries, interviews, and pay-per-view events in WWE Universe mode. And, of course, there is online multiplayer available if you want to test your skills and compete with other gamers over Xbox Live. WWE 2K17 even lets you take the action outside the ring, in the crowd, and into backstage areas! There’s so much to do in WWE 2K17, you may lose track of time! Just don’t lose track of your opponent or you might be introduced to a steel chair!
Halo Wars 2
Microsoft’s own 343 Industries is getting in on the Xbox Game Pass action in February, bringing you Halo Wars 2, the beautiful and challenging RTS sequel to Halo Wars. Build out your bases, gather and manage critical resources, and defeat enemy factions with your superior military strategy and combat. Solo or co-op, Halo Wars 2 is among the very best strategy games on Xbox, and we are excited to have it join the fray on Xbox Game Pass. And for those of you who have an Xbox One X, you’ll be pleased to know that Halo Wars 2 is Xbox One X Enhanced, with 4K HDR support, as well as super-sampled anti-aliasing for 1080P tv sets (it’s as impressive as it sounds).
Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition
Our parade of stellar sequels continues with THQ Nordic’s action RPG Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition. Many of our Xbox Game Pass members jumped into Darksiders Warmastered Edition so now’s a great opportunity to continue exploring the tale of The Four Horsemen — this time as Death. Discover his story through epic quests and challenging side missions while battling enemies, toppling bosses, and solving puzzles along the way. Defeat Corruption and prepare yourself for the next chapter in the story: Darksiders III, coming soon to Xbox One!
With the addition of the gorgeous and engaging remaster of the original Fable game, Xbox Game Pass members can now play through the entire Fable trilogy. Each game in the series offers a tremendous story and RPG experience. And with Xbox Game Pass, getting Fable is easy. The hard part will be putting the controller down once you’ve become engrossed in Fable’s incredible world of action and adventure!
If you enjoy immersive single-player puzzle-adventure games then indie gem Rime is for you. In Rime, you control a young boy isolated on a seemingly deserted island and must help him solve puzzles on his journey to escape the island. With a unique and beautiful aesthetic and a story inspired by the five stages of grief, Rime is an experience a bit unlike anything else in Xbox Game Pass. We’re hopeful you love its charm and ingenuity every bit as much as we do!
Riptide Renegade GP
Racers and jet ski fans, we’ve got something this month for you as well with Vector Unit’s fast-paced aquatic racer Riptide Renegade GP hitting the catalog in February. Riptide Renegade GP is a futuristic racing game with realistic physics and tight controls, as well multiple modes for you to enjoy. Complete events, enter tournaments, and start collecting victories against friends through local co-op, or online with Xbox Live!
Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey
Similar to Rime, indie diamond-in-the-rough Letter Quest: Grimm’s Journey offers a unique story-based experience for Xbox Game Pass members. In Letter Quest, your objective is to spell words to unlock attacks on monsters, new items, boosters, and new chapters in the storyline. With a unique style of play, replayable levels with multiple new challenges, and some RPG flair, you may be surprised at how much fun you’ll have in Letter Quest.

Games added in January 2018
Toss it up and throw it down! NBA Playgrounds is joining Xbox Game Pass this January and we could not be more excited to jump into the fast-paced, high-flying action. Saber Interactive has created an incredibly fun and addictive arcade experience with Playgrounds, which includes all 30 NBA franchises (and the Supersonics!) and an incredibly deep (and dare we say nostalgic) stable of over 300 current and former NBA players.
Complete challenges as you conquer tournament mode to earn new courts and card packs. Test your skills head-to-head in exhibition or online mode and grind out upgrades for your player cards. Or take a moment to polish your shooting stroke in the 3-point contest. With a ton of modes and content out of the gate, and the big Hot n’ Frosty DLC on sale now in the Microsoft Store — including new NBA players, like Lonzo Ball and Dennis Smith Jr., and secondary team options for a wide range of NBA players — there just might be more fun here than you can shake a stick at.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Superhero fans rejoice! January delivers one of the most engaging fighting games of the 360 generation in Warner Bros.’ Injustice: Gods Among Us. Experience a complex saga in story mode, or choose from one of 24 legendary DC characters, including Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman and defeat all opponents either solo, online, or through local play for some old school, couch competition. With a stacked roster, a deep stable of moves and specials, and the same familiar fighting mechanics as NetherRealm’s other smash fighting franchise, Mortal Kombat, Injustice can’t help but impress. And, if you have a great time playing Injustice in Xbox Game Pass, we think you are going love Injustice 2, available today in the Microsoft Store!
Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition
January also sees the addition of Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, the final installment in Capcom’s exciting hack-n-slash franchise — this is most decidedly not a button masher. If you’ve played any of the previous Devil May Cry games, then you know DmC requires a challenging mix of strategic defense and powerful attacks. Combat grand enemies, solve puzzles, and collect items as you seek to topple the Order of the Sword. If you’ve played Devil May Cry HD in Xbox Game Pass, get ready for even more excitement in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition.
Break out your party pants because Fuzion Frenzy, an Xbox Original and one of the greatest party games ever to grace the platform, is coming to Xbox Game Pass in January. Released on Xbox One in October through the Backward Compatibility program, Fuzion Frenzy delivers four-player action across more than 40 different mini-games. Choose from one of six characters and jump into Mini-Game Frenzy mode or take on Tournament mode and compete for the right to conquer each zone and reign supreme over your friends as the Fuzion Frenzy champion. Fuzion Frenzy may not be one of the newest games you’ll find in Xbox Game Pass, but we think you’ll find it to be one of the most fun. Enjoy!
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes
In November, we were thrilled to bring Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to Xbox Game Pass. So many of our members have jumped in to play MGS V for the first time, and many others took the opportunity to revisit the incredible experience of that game. Now, we’re giving members a chance to learn more about what led to The Phantom Pain’s storyline with the addition of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Set in 1975, just after the conclusion of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, you resume the role of Snake and are tasked with rescuing two key hostages from Camp Omega. With seven intense missions to play through, Ground Zeroes is a relatively short campaign, but one that is long on action and suspense.
Deadlight: Director’s Cut
Seattle, 1986. You are Randall Wayne, zombie apocalypse survivor and a man on a mission to find his family. This is the gritty plot behind Deadlight: Director’s Cut, Tequila Works’ incredibly engaging cinematic survival platformer. Zombies are known as Shadows in Deadlight, and it’s up to you to guide Randall through the infested streets of Seattle. The Shadows can be defeated, but combat comes with a great risk of death in Deadlight, so be cautious in deciding when you taunt them into battle. Collect hidden items as you move through the story and learn more about Randall, his family, and the tragedy that has befallen this apocalyptic purgatory.
Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection
Do you ever get the urge to stroll through a beautiful zoo, taking in stunning creatures hailing from all over the globe? If so, you’re in luck, because the recently re-released Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection is about to land in Xbox Game Pass. Fully remastered in 4K with HDR support, Zoo Tycoon has added a host of new animals from Australia and South America. Rooted in the same spirit as the original Zoo Tycoon from 2001, there’s never been a better time to enjoy the rich visuals and variety of activities Zoo Tycoon Ultimate Animal Collection has to offer.
WRC 5: World Rally Championship
Racing fans, we’ve got something great coming to Xbox Game Pass for you this month as well! WRC 5: World Rally Championship, a thrilling rally racing game featuring over 50 officially licensed teams and drivers, also comes to Xbox Game Pass this January. With stages from 13 different countries, WRC 5 is a deep experience that offers a ton of challenge while remaining very accessible and fun for the more casual rally racers among us. Jump in the driver’s seat and kick up some mud as you begin your own rally racing dynasty!
If you’re a fan of Devil May Cry or other hack-n-slash games, January is twice as nice because Sega’s classic hit Bayonetta is joining the Xbox Game Pass catalog as well! Take on the role of Bayonetta, a shapeshifting witch with dual sidearms and hair that carries the ability to eat angels. Yes, angels. Bayonetta has awoken with no memory, but she sure can fight. Combat in Bayonetta is top notch, tasking you with using a combination of kicks, punches, and weapon strikes to take down foes large and small (and there are some very large enemies in this adventure). Put together the perfect combo and watch it unfold on your enemy’s face. Use your Xbox Game Pass membership to fight your way through all 16 chapters of this incredible saga in 2018!
Tecmo Bowl Throwback
Finally, we are pumped to add Tecmo Bowl Throwback to Xbox Game Pass in January. Throwback stays true to its roots, with the same exciting, top-down arcade experience as Tecmo Super Bowl, arguably the greatest arcade football game of all time. Throwback rosters are fully customizable so you’re just a little elbow grease away from building out your favorite pro, college, or dream football team.With over 100 great games, for just $9.99 a month, plus new games added every month, Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Thanks for reading January’s Xbox Game Pass update, and don’t forget, you can start your Xbox Game Pass membership for just $1 between December 21 – January 4.

And that’s just in the single player campaign – there is more excitement to be found in multiplayer or Horde mode. As an added bonus, The Coalition is kicking of December with a double XP incentive.
Darksiders: Warmastered Edition
Also headlining December is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, THQ Nordic’s third person action adventure journey based on the lore of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

This War of Mine: The Little Ones
Xbox Game Pass gets another diamond in the rough this month with This War of Mine: The Little Ones, a civilian-based perspective on the Bosnian War, developed by 11-bit studios and published by Deep Silver. This War of Mine is equal parts strategy and survival, requiring you to take on the role of a bystander to war and scavenge for resources, ration supplies, and try (oft unsuccessfully) to avoid the perils of war. This War of Mine is a demanding game covering a very sobering topic, and one you are not likely to forget anytime soon.
Casey Powell Lacrosse 16
If you’re a sports fan, fun times await this month with Casey Powell Lacrosse 16. Lacrosse is a fast-paced, action-packed sport requiring keen strategy and tactical precision and CPL 16 delivers pace and excitement reminiscent of the real thing. If you’re new to Lacrosse, jump into the Lacrosse Academy to develop and polish your skills.

Mega Man 10
Did we mention we love Mega Man? The adventure continues in Xbox Game Pass in December with Mega Man 10 joining the catalog. Mega Man 10, the last and final installment in the legendary platforming saga, allows you to assume the role of either Mega Man or Proto Man and take on classic boss battles with Blade Man, Chill Man, Sheep Man, and more!

There’s never been a better time to join the action and defeat the evil Dr. Wiley!
We are beyond excited to bring Mass Effect to Xbox Game Pass on December 1! One of the greatest single-player action RPGs of all-time, Mass Effect is a true classic that has aged extremely well.

Choose from six different classes and up-level your character as you seek out and complete combat missions, resource gathering expeditions, and other side quests. Winner of multiple awards, Mass Effect is an incredible experience that we highly recommend you make time to check out in your journeys through the Xbox Game Pass catalog!

Now let’s learn more about the new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in November:
We’re excited to announce Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is joining Xbox Game Pass for the next three months. If you haven’t played Konami’s critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning latest installment to the legendary Metal Gear franchise, wait no longer.
In The Phantom Pain’s single-player campaign, you must stealthily guide Snake through an open world full of countless, dangerous enemies, while navigating the rugged terrain of Afghanistan to take down the evil Patriots organization.

There’s so much to do, so don’t miss out on all the fun and intensity Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain can offer while it’s in the Xbox Game Pass catalog from November 1, 2017 to January 31, 2018. And, if you love Metal Gear Solid V, get ready for next chapter, Metal Gear Survive, which is set to release on Xbox One February 20, 2018.
Halo Wars Definitive Edition
November signals a return to the Halo universe with Halo Wars: Definitive Edition. Halo Wars is an incredibly exciting top-down real-time strategy experience, which requires you to master everything from tactical troop deployments to base building to resource management. Play though the Campaign as you lead the UNSC’s Spirit of Fire against the Covenant forces in this epic adventure. At 1080p, 60fps, and paired with a dynamic soundtrack, now’s the best time to experience this RTS classic.
Resident Evil HD
There’s no better time to bring Resident Evil HD to Xbox Game Pass than during Halloween. As a franchise, Resident Evil is a cornerstone of today’s thriving survival-horror genre within gaming. Dark, ominous, and sure to elicit an involuntary response or two, Resident Evil HD takes you back to 1998, where you take on the role of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, members of the STARS special forces team sent to investigate a series of very unusual murders. Cornered and sheltered inside a seriously spooky old mansion, you’ll find that your health is precious, and your ammo even more so. Can you survive the dangers of the night and uncover the evil intentions of the Umbrella corporation?
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty
The hits keep coming in November with Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, an iconic 2D platformer that deftly strikes a perfect balance between Oddworld nostalgia and next-gen polish. In New ‘n’ Tasty, you control the lovable Mudokon, Abe, who is thrust into the position of hero-to-be once he realizes the meat processing plant where he works is about to get into the Mudokon-processing business. Not keen to become meat snacks, Abe sets out on a quest to escape the guards, Sligs, Scrabs, and other creepy creatures inhabiting the meat factory. Help Abe sneak his way to survival!
The World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap
For the action RPG and tower defense fans out there, our friends at Neocore have a treat for you: World of Van Helsing: Deathtrap. Jump back into the gothic realm of Incredible Adventures and protect the Silent Forts from the hordes of monsters seeking to destroy Borgovia. Build, protect, and defend solo or cooperatively, and even battle online against your friends and fellow Xbox Game Pass members. We love this Indie gem and we hope you do too!
Mega Man 9
More Mega Man, they said. More Mega Man, we bring. Our blue buddy returns to Xbox Game Pass with more to explore in Mega Man 9. For the uninitiated, Mega Man is a legendary 2D platforming shooter delivering hours of fun battling a wide array of bosses, from Hornet Man to Splash Woman and many more in between.
Sky Force Anniversary
If flying and shooting is your thing, then you better make time in November for Sky Force Anniversary. Brought to you by developer Infinite Dreams, Sky Force Anniversary is an exceptionally fun and fluid vertical scrolling shooter, demanding laser focus, nimble thumbs, and a deft trigger finger. With a deceptively simple but engaging progression system, collect as many stars as you can to strategically build out your weaponry, fortify your defenses, and achieve all four objectives for each stage. Beat all nine levels at each difficulty level and defeat the evil General Madness to unlock a bonus! Having trouble completing your missions as a squadron of one? Pull a friend onto the couch for some local co-op and take down General Madness together![/quote]

ReCore Definitive Edition
ReCore DE is coming – and it’s coming right to Xbox Game Pass! ReCore is an ambitious action/adventure title that puts you in the shoes of Joule, accompanied by her three incredible corebot companions, as you traverse the dystopian world of Far Eden. Battle a wide array of enemies, complete side quests, and solve challenging puzzles in this innovative 3D platforming experience.
Metro: Last Light Redux
The post-apocalyptic fun continues in September with Metro: Last Light Redux, an absolute FPS gem from our friends at Deep Silver. Last Light lands you in Moscow in the year 2034, where you play as the character Artyom, navigating the Moscow metro tunnels and combating a hearty mix of human and mutant adversaries. Blending in strong survival and strategy elements, Metro is a compelling sequel to the FPS classic Metro 2033 and an experience Xbox Game Pass members will not want to miss.
Also coming to Xbox Game Pass in September is the legendary action RPG, Fable II, published by our very own Microsoft Studios. You play as Sparrow, a young child (you can choose male or female) on a journey to gain vengeance against the evil Lucien. Combat enemies, complete side missions, and find allies on your way to becoming a true hero. With both single player and co-op modes, September is a great time to explore the magical open world of Albion.
Garou: Mark of the Wolves
Xbox Game Pass’ stable of awesome fighting games gets a boost in September with the NEOGEO classic, Garou: Mark of the Wolves. Fight with one of 12 characters in Arcade mode, defeat both bosses, and become the King of Fighters. Or, find a friend and battle it out for couch co-op supremacy. If you’re a fan of Fatal Fury, or just classic fighting games in general, you are going to love getting your rounds in with Garou.
10 Second Ninja X
Requiring skill, speed, and precision, 10 Second Ninja X delivers a heck of a lot of fun and plenty of challenge to Xbox Game Pass members. The premise is simple – you have 10 seconds, a sword, and three shurikens to complete each of the 100 levels in this awesome platformer from our friends at Curve Digital. Explore the different paths to accomplishing each level’s objectives, unlock costumes, gather achievements and find all nine collectible items as you work your way from Level 1 to Level 100. You only get 10 seconds per level, but we won’t be surprised if you lose whole days chasing victory in 10 Second Ninja this month.
Curve Digital is also giving Xbox Game Pass members access to Hue this September, another terrific Indie puzzle-platformer from our ID@Xbox program. Hue is both the game title and the name of your main character, who is on a mission to bring color to an otherwise monochrome world and solve the mystery of Hue’s lost mother. Read letters from Hue’s mother, learn to control the colors you progressively unlock, and leverage those colors to solve challenging puzzles. With a unique and engaging art style, Hue is a must-play in Xbox Game Pass.
As if your brain wasn’t getting enough of a workout, the brilliant minds at The Astrophysicists Guild bring you The Bridge. A 2D puzzler, The Bridge is tons of fun and very engaging. And while the puzzles will keep you thinking, it may be the black-and-white art design we love most about this game. The Bridge feels like an artist’s sketchbook, with each puzzle occupying a single screen, which allows you to closely analyze each level and decipher the best path to completion. Just don’t be tricked into thinking logic alone will help you succeed in The Bridge – without a fair amount of finesse, and meticulous execution, you may find you need multiple attempts to solve each puzzle and complete the game.

More than 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles will be unlocked to download if you purchase a £7.99/$9.99 Xbox Game Pass.

At Xbox, we put gamers at the center of everything we do and remain committed to giving you the freedom to play the games you want, with the friends you want, on the devices you want. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one for gamers. As we prepare to launch Project Scorpio this holiday, bringing the most powerful console ever made to the Xbox One family of devices, we continue to make platform improvements to connect the growing community of players on Xbox Live and add to a robust and diverse portfolio of games across Xbox One and Windows 10.
Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games with Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service coming later this spring. Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games – all for $9.99 per month.
With great games from top industry publishers such as 2K, 505 Games, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SEGA, SNK CORPORATION, THQ Nordic GmbH, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Studios, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and you will always find something exciting to play across a variety of genres. Some of the fan favorite titles coming to Xbox Game Pass when it launches to the broader Xbox community in late spring include, Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II.
One of the best things about Xbox Game Pass is that you can discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One. That means continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth or connectivity issues. In addition, all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members, so you can make the games you love part of your permanent library to play whenever you want. Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.
It’s important to us that Xbox Game Pass provides an enjoyable and seamless experience. Before the program rolls out to the broader community later this spring, we’ll be testing Xbox Game Pass with select members of the Xbox Insider Program in the Alpha Preview ring, starting today with a very limited number of titles. The titles that are available in Preview are just a small glimpse at the expansive catalog of games that will be available when Xbox Game Pass launches late spring. Xbox Live Gold members will also be receiving exclusive access to Xbox Game Pass prior to the program launching to the broader community. We’ll have more details on timing closer to launch.
We hope you enjoy Xbox Game Pass and all that it has to offer. We’re looking forward to hearing the feedback from the gamers in the Xbox Insider Program and then from the rest of the Xbox community when it’s broadly available later this spring. Your feedback will make this program better for all gamers.
Thank you for your continued passion and support of Xbox.

Xbox Game Pass will be available in at least 27 Xbox markets at launch, quickly growing to as many new markets as catalogue availability permits.
If you love a game currently in the catalogue and want to own it, you can buy it and instantly save 20 per cent off the price of the base game with your Xbox Game Pass membership, plus get 10 per cent off any related game add-ons and consumables while the game is still in the Xbox Game Pass catalogue.
No, you do not need to have an Xbox Live Gold membership to access Xbox Game Pass. As with all Xbox Live titles, you will need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play multiplayer in Xbox Game Pass titles.
