Game Pass for PC Games October

No date has been given as to when these will be added to the service this month, other than The Outer Worlds (October 25), but we will update you as soon as we know. Let's take a look at the new games announced:

23/08/2018 - Carousel

First up we have F1 2018. Become immersed in the world of Formula 1, by building your reputation on and off the track. F1 2018 features all official teams, drivers and all 21 tracks of the 2018 season. For the first time, you can now race at the French Grand Prix circuit, Circuit Paul Ricard, and the German Grand Prix circuit Hockenheimring is also making a return.

lonely mountains downhill

Lonely Mountains Downhill will have you racing down a mountain landscape; through thick forests and raging rivers. Race, jump and slide from the highest peaks to the bottom without crashing. Each mountain comes with the challenge of finding your own route to the bottom.


Minit is an adventure game that is played in 60-second chunks. You will journey from your home to help those in need, uncover secrets and overcome enemies all in hopes of lifting a strange curse that ends each day just after a minute.

31/07/2018 - Carousel

In State of Mind, you will take on the role of journalist Richard Nolan and five other characters to reconstruct Richard's past. This sci-fi thriller delves into transhumanism in a world that is "torn between a dystopian material reality and a utopian virtual future."


Stellaris is a space strategy game from the creators of Cities: Skylines. In Stellaris, you will explore and discover a constantly evolving universe. Interact with a variety of species and forge an empire by sending out ships to survey, explore and build space stations around newly discovered planets.

Also coming this month is the single-player first-person sci-fi RPG, The Outer Worlds and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. These two titles have already been previously announced as coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC, so they aren't too much of a surprise.

Leaving Xbox Game Pass for PC

One game is leaving Xbox Game Pass for PC this month, and that's Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption. The Xbox Wire post doesn't mention a date when the action-RPG will be leaving the service, but if you've started and want to finish it, get playing!
