Final Fantasy XV, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and more coming to Xbox Game Pass

By Sean Carey,
New games are making their way to both Xbox Game Pass for console and Xbox Game Pass for PC this month. For both platforms we have Final Fantasy XV, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Console players will also get Death Squared while those with Xbox Game Pass for PC will be able to check out the 2D platformer Death's Gambit.

Final Fantasy XV Screen 6

Final Fantasy XV (Console and PC)

Coming on February 6, we have 2016's Final Fantasy XV. The store listing reads, "Noctis, crown prince of the magical Kingdom of Lucis, embarks on a quest to reclaim his homeland in this action RPG. Take up the steering wheel and hit the road with your colourful companions to explore a vast and breathtaking world. Invoke the power of your ancestors and effortlessly warp through the air in thrilling combat." This is might only be the base game which doesn't include any of the DLCs. The base game contains 50 achievements worth 1000 Gamerscore, and it's likely to take you around 60-80 hours to complete — so be prepared to spend some time with FFXV for the full completion. According to notes listed on the achievement page, the "Comrades" and "Comrades Update" DLC achievements are unobtainable on the Xbox One but can be completed on the Windows 10 version.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood (Console and PC)

Also coming on February 6 we have Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Set 19 years after the events of Wolfenstein II, players will take on the role of BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph Blazkowicz who are forced into action after their father disappears during a mission in Nazi-occupied Paris. Looking at the achievement list, you're in for another long one with 60 achievements taking around 50-60 hours to complete for Youngblood's 1000 Gamerscore.

February 13

Death Squared

Death Squared (Console only)

Some of you may already have this one thanks to it being a Games with Gold title a year or so ago, but Death Squared is also being added to the Xbox Game Pass lineup on February 13. The co-op puzzle game supports up to four players and will have you working together to guide robots to specific colour coded goals while avoiding traps. Compared to the other two previously announced games, Death Squared is somewhat more straightforward with just 25 achievements and an estimated 6-8 hour completion time — check out our Walkthrough for more on that one.

Although no date has been given for this one, we have the challenging 2D platformer with role-playing elements, Death's Gambit coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC. "The promise of immortality lies at the heart of Siradon. As Death's right hand, challenge the undying guardians of the realm and endure the eternal struggle to purge their souls. But what reward awaits a faithful servant of Death?" The game supports both PlayStation Trophies and Steam Achievements, so we are hoping to pick up an achievement list for this one soon.

If you missed it yesterday, changes have been made to the Xbox Game Pass Quests system which now offers up more ways to earn Microsoft Rewards Points.
