Xbox Game Pass January - Tekken 7, Frostpunk: Console Edition & Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet

56
Posted 7th Jan

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

January 9

Frostpunk: Console Edition (ID@Xbox)
A society survival game where heat means life and every decision comes at a price. As the leader of the last civilized society on Earth, you’re tasked with building a city for your survivors to live in, discover new technologies, explore frozen wastelands and most importantly, manage and rule society to prepare it for life in an unforgiving world. Choices in this world aren’t as easy as they seem and holding power over people has a cost as heavy as the responsibility you feel in caring for them.

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet
Dive into an original story where you are the protagonist in the virtual reality world of Gun Gale Online where you’ll encounter enemies and familiar faces from the “Sword Art Online” anime series. Develop your avatar as you see fit, master a wide array of weapons and skills, and learn to survive in your own personal warzone. You can also experience co-op and PvP using the weapons you find with your customized character.

January 16

Tekken 7
The storied fighting franchise returns for another round in Tekken 7. With the faithful 3D battle system and gameplay intact, Tekken 7 takes the franchise to the next level with photo-realistic graphics and new and innovative features and fighting mechanics with the attitude, competitiveness, and showmanship rooted in its arcade DNA to provide the ultimate fighting game experience on Xbox.

In Case You Missed It

Sometimes we sneak one in there, and the game we added earlier this month (it’s only January 7?!) is one you don’t want to miss.

Grand Theft Auto V
When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

As Frostpunk says Console Edition I would think this is Xbox only. At least for that one anyway.

Wow. Been thinking about buying the Tekken 7/Project Cars 2 bundle from PC World/Currys that costs a fiver. Guess I won’t have to now.
We’re also getting Yakuza Zero, Kiwami and Kiwami 2 this year

Love the Yakuza series
Is it just me or are they really skimping on the PC version lately?
Why does the year say 2019...

Why does the year say 2019...


Presumably because it can be quite hard to get of the habit that you've followed for a year, even for Microsoft! It's not a fake, though, the games are there in the mobile app.
man! i still haven't finished halo 2...
Nice Frostpunk is a very nice addition indeed, one of the highest rated survival strategy titles out there. I have it on Steam but still interested to see how the console one plays by comparison, really hope it's X enhanced as it's quite graphically intensive and could see it chugging quite badly on original Xbox (or being horribly pared back).

Other two a bit meh for me personally but I'm sure some will like em. Hope Control is coming too. I know there was a rumour about it coming last year, think someone at MS announced it then quickly retracted the statement or something (there was some info on twitter about it) but hopefully they have it for realm this time....

No, I have noticed too, hardly seems to have been anything terribly exciting in the last month or so. Last game I really wanted to play on there was the new Age of Empires 2. Of the latest additions TABS has been free on Epic very recently so bit of a wasted inclusion, stuff like infinifactory ok, but very old now.

Shame they couldn't have got Frostpunk for PC, I wonder if it being on Origin Access at the moment prevented them from getting it as it seems odd otherwise why they wouldn't add it to give better parity with the console offering...

Oh I believe it's not fake, just fun seeing an error,
Looking forward to them, especially frostpunk
Does this mean we finally get a tekken 7 patch? 900p rez on an xbox x when even the base ps4 is 1080p is shocking dev support
how come none of the call of duty games are available on gamepass?
Can you play the games after the month? I recently bought a game pass for my son, but no idea how it works. Thanks.

Doubt it

“The spec is enough (Of course TEKKEN7 is 4K compatible with Steam)”, the game director said on Twitter when asked about Tekken 7 Xbox One X 4K support. “But It requires a significant update of Unreal (UE version of TK7) for X. With the new hardware, we've to change the way access our memory greatly.”

As long as you stay subscribed to gamepass you and play the games. Unless Microsoft remove them which they do from time to time.

Probably because it would cost far too much compared to the benefit that they would bring, if Activision are even interested at all.

Games entering the Game Pass library remain available until they're removed from the library by Microsoft. There's no need to purchase/redeem to keep them available while they're still in the library, but they could be removed at any time. There's typically several weeks' warning before removal.

Games are on the service for a set amount of time (usually 6-12 months) apart from first party Microsoft Games which are on forever. Games leave each month and are announced before the end of the month which ones are leaving.

Game pass is a subscription service. Once you stop subscribing you lose access to the games on the service.

You can buy them if you wish for a small discount during your subscription and then get to keep them afterward but otherwise they will not work after your subscription ends even if they are on the Xbox’s disk drive

fair enough but you would think that they would at least have one of the older COD titles.
Even Black Ops 2 is still £39.99 on the Microsoft store?!!! How is that even possible lol I need a digital copy as my console has no disk drive. Prob be better off grabbing the latest modern warfare one I guess.
Super stuff - somehow missed the post - not sure how FrostPunk is a cracking addition.

Yes, but I've just learned the hard way that if you are into a game then you should buy it if a good deal comes up - my son is well into Lego City Undercover but I just had notification that it's coming off Gamepass soon. It is currently £39.99 - it was £12.50 in November. Grrr!

I think the more popular Game Pass becomes, Activision will be forced to.

Yep, I hate it when games you are playing (or really wanted to play) get pulled. While it is commendable that MS seem to be consistently adding more games than they remove, I still hate to see titles go (well except the truly awful ones). I truly wish Game Pass was an instant game collection you could keep (as long as you keep paying the sub of course!). I know it would be expensive but if there is one company has enough money to do it it's Microsoft.

As to Lego City Undercover, don't even consider paying £40 for it, a quick eBay search reveals it can easily be had for no more than £10-£15 physical...

Control has gotta be coming soon, Phil Spencer mentioned this on a livestream last month. Control is a really good game so would be a feather in the cap for Gamepass

Plus it didn’t sell too well so will be good for Remedy to let people try it out.

Was added to game pass last June.
May be off topic question but do xbox game pass code expire? I bought one via cdkeys and want to use it in some time. How long can I keep it?

If you just want a cod game with a decent campaign, infinite warfare digital can be had for less than a fiver at allkeyshop. Also Titanfall 2, if you haven't played it, is a superb campaign. Also under 5 squid.

Whaaat?

This just gets better by every month!

I mean seriously, who cares about PS5 and their exclusives with Game Pass delivering every month?😜

Looking forward to Control!
