Ark: Survival Evolved, Life is Strange 2 and More Joining Xbox Game Pass this Month

Life is Strange 2-min

Xbox Game Pass offers ridiculous value, and it seems like it’s set to continue to do so in 2019.

Six games have been announced for the service in January, with one of them being very much a surprise: Life is Strange 2. While there’s currently only one episode of the series available, episodes 2-5 will apparently be coming to Xbox Game Pass as soon as they’re released.

As well as Life is Strange 2, Ark: Survival Evolved and Farming Simulator 17 will also join Xbox Game Pass on 3rd January, followed by Absolver on 7th January. Then, on 10th January, Just Cause 3 and Aftercharge will join the service. Needless to say, if you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, you’d be wise to check them all out.

Honestly though, Life is Strange 2 is the real standout Xbox Game Pass release this month. Both Life is Strange Season One and Life is Strange: Before the Storm are available on Xbox Game Pass too, so make your way through them if you haven’t already done so. And if Life is Strange isn’t your cup of tea, give Ark: Survival Evolved a try. Especially if you have an Xbox One X.
