A bunch of new games have been announced for both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC and are all making their way to the service this March. Bleeding Edge, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid and The Surge 2 will be coming to both services. Console players will also be getting ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown and KONA, while PC players will have Astroglaster to dig into.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (Console only)

17/01/2019 - Carousel

Take to unknown skies in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown when the vehicular combat flying sim lands on Xbox Game Pass for console tomorrow. Here on TA, the community has rated this one highly with a 4.16/5. Looking at the achievement list, not many have completed it – you'll probably need to crack on with this one sooner than later. Two achievements are flagged as time-consuming, and you'll also need to play through Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown a couple of times to unlock every achievement.

KONA (Console only)


KONA is an adventure game that should take you around 8-10 hours to complete for its attached 1000 Gamerscore. Our official site review gives Kona a 3/5 and cites an interesting story that will keep you intrigued until the end. 35 achievements the list with plenty of them being flagged as collectable and/or missable.

The Surge 2 (Console and PC)

The Surge 2 Achievements

The Surge 2 is coming to both console and PC and will take you an estimated completion time of around 40-50 hours to unlock. Not too many interesting achievements to shout about on The Surge 2 achievement list, although there are a couple of tough ones in there that not many seemed to have unlocked.

March 24th

Bleeding Edge (Console and PC)

Bleeding Edge release date closed beta

Bleeding Edge is released on March 24th and comes to both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC. We don't have an achievement list for this one yet, but we did get the chance to travel up to Ninja Theory's studio to preview the game. We had a great time checking out the team-based action brawler, and you can read more about Bleeding Edge here. If you're interested, we also sat down with Bleeding Edge's creative director, Rahni Tucker and senior game designer, Gerald Poon and spoke about Game Pass and life as an Xbox Games Studio.

March 26th

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid (Console and PC)

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Achievements

Coming on March 26th to both services is Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. This one has some whopping TA scores attached to its achievements. The Morphenomenal achievement has a TA score of 1369. Looking at the achievement list, quite a few others have similar scores too. Unfortunately, not many have completed this one so we can't give you an estimated completion time.

No date has been given for this one, but Astroglaster will be coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC. Unfortunately, this game doesn't support achievements. If you're interested, it's a comedy title set in Shakespeare's London. You'll play as Simon Forman who is tasked with treating patients with nothing more than the power of astrology.
