Xbox Game Pass for PC coming soon: Ori 2, Pikuniku and the LOTR Adventure Card Game

By Heidi Nicholas,
Xbox has just announced a new slew of titles coming soon to the Xbox Game Pass for PC service; a list headed by Ori and the Will of the Wisps, the much-anticipated sequel to Moon Studios' Ori and the Blind Forest.

March Xbox Game Pass for PC titles

The pre-download for Ori and the Will of the Wisps is already available for Xbox Game Pass for PC players, so that you'll be able to start playing as soon as it joins the service on March 11th. We had the chance to try out Will of the Wisps a few weeks ago, and you can check out our Will of the Wisps preview for what we thought about the sequel, as well as some thoughts from Xbox Game Studios' games producer Daniel Smith. Xbox hasn't yet given the dates for when the rest of these titles will join the service, but since several are shared with Xbox Game Pass for console, it's likely they'll arrive around the same time.

As their first March offering, the Xbox Game Pass for PC service is offering a fair few titles besides Ori's platforming adventures. As with the Xbox Game Pass for console service, players will also be getting puzzler Pikuniku, as well as the latest in trains with Train Sim World 2020. Xbox Game Pass for PC members will also be getting beat 'em up Mother Russia Bleeds and Middle Earth's tactical card game, The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game.

Again, Xbox hasn't confirmed when these titles will arrive; but console players will be getting Train Sim World 2020 on March 5th, and Pikuniku on March 12th, so it's likely Xbox Game Pass for PC will get these around the same time. Both services will get Ori and the Will of the Wisps when it releases in a week, on its launch day of March 11th. Xbox remind players that this isn't all they'll be adding to the service. On the down side, these new additions mark the end of the line for several other Xbox Game Pass for PC titles, which will all be leaving soon:
  • Apocalipsis
  • Lichtspeer Double Speer Edition
  • Shenmue I
  • Shenmue II
  • Thimbleweed Park
  • Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition
We'll let you know when Xbox confirm the dates for their March additions to the Xbox Game Pass for PC service.
