Backstab your friends across multiple platforms! Other Ocean is proud to announce that Project Winter will be available on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC on January 26, 2021.
Project Winter is a 5-8 person multiplayer game focused on social deception and survival. Players are stranded in the frozen wilderness and must call in an escape before they meet an untimely demise. The majority of players will load into the game as survivors, but some will be randomly selected to be traitors. Only the traitors will know each other’s roles, the survivors must be vigilant while figuring out who the traitors are. Survivors must gather resources, repair objectives, and brave the wilderness together - but beware of the traitors within the group who will be steadily gaining strength as the match progresses and whose only goal is to stop the survivors by any means necessary. Communication and teamwork are essential to the survivors’ ultimate goal of escape.
I got stuck in Little Acre within 10 minutes and gave up. Was enjoying it up until then, though.
As My Friend Pedro was leaving Gamepass I gave that a go instead. I really didn't think I'd get on with it, but found it great fun - still think I was doing some of the moves by fluke rather than skill but hey.

I had not heard of this until about a month ago, but it sounds pretty cool.
Donut County should be nice breezy fun. I have been looking forward to The Medium since its announcement, and i dont know when i am going to fit in the Yak remasters. I only played Kiwami 2 when it came to Game Pass recently, so it wasn't really on my list.
Is Yakuza 3 the one that people are lukewarm on? Something to do with the fighting being too protracted?
Absolutely ridiculous value from game pass ultimate. I’m only on PC so don’t get the console stuff but with flight sim, gears, forza horizon, ori, I’m really pleased. Throw in control and desperados, it’s awesome!
