Microsoft confirmed today via its Xbox Wire blog that the upcoming Outriders and Octopath Traveller will soon release on Game Pass.
The news comes alongside the announcement of several other titles, including Yakuza 6: Song of Life, Star Wars Squadrons and Nier: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition.
This batch of game announcements arrives only days after Microsoft released a collection of Bethesda titles on the service, further expanding on the impressive library of available titles.
Outriders, which releases April 1st, is one of Microsoft’s biggest scoops for the service to date.
The Square Enix developed cooperative shooters aims to follow in the footsteps of Destiny 2, by providing players with a deep RPG system, fast-paced FPS gunplay and plenty of loot to collect.
Square Enix recently released a demo for Outriders, providing eager fans the perfect opportunity to preview the game ahead of its release date.
Outriders will launch on Game Pass on April 1st, the same day as its global release.
The rest of March and April will be busy for Game Pass subscribers, with a number of titles coming to the service.
Much like other content drops before this, games release on a weekly basis and can be console limited. Here’s a list of all the games arriving in the next few weeks, along with which platforms they will be available on.

It’s interesting that Outriders is releasing on Game Pass for consoles, but not for PC. Perhaps Square Enix thought this might affect sales too much? Or maybe it could arrive at a later date?
