The first wave of October Xbox and PC Game Pass games is on the way, and all we can think about is A Plague Tale: Requiem.
It’s not that we aren’t looking forward to the rest of Xbox and PC Game Pass’s October line-up, we definitely are. But ever since we learned A Plague Tale: Innocence was getting a sequel, and coming to Game Pass, we’ve been racking our brains, wondering how it could one-up the original’s rat tornados. A horde of rats forming one Godzilla-sized mega-rat, maybe?
We won’t have to wait long to find out, either – A Plague Tale: Requiem hits Xbox and PC Game Pass this October 18th. But, ratnado obsession aside, there are eight other games joining Game Pass. Some are console only, some are PC only and some can be played through the cloud, providing you have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
So without further ado, here’s what’s coming in the first half(ish) of October:
- Chivalry 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC) – Out now
- Medieval Dynasty (Xbox Series X|S) – October 6th
- The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season (PC) – October 6th
- The Walking Dead: Season Two (PC) – October 6th
- Costume Quest (Cloud and Console) – October 11th
- Eville (Console and PC) – October 11th
- Dyson Sphere Program (PC) – October 13th
- Scorn (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – October 14th
- A Plague Tale: Requiem (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – October 18th
Eville, Dyson Sphere Program, Scorn and A Plague Tale: Requiem are all day one releases. Scorn is a squishy puzzle game that, while it won’t appeal to everyone, could be worth checking out if you’re a fan of the later H.R. Giger’s work. And if you’ve not played Telltale’s The Walking Dead, now’s the time to dive in, though be prepared for people to die. A lot.
A second wave of Game Pass games will also be announced mid-October. And the following titles are leaving at the end of the month:
- Bloodroots (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Echo Generation (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Into The Pit (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Ring of Pain (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- Sable (Cloud, Console, and PC)
- The Good Life (Cloud, Console, and PC)
