Desperados III, Cyber Shadow, and more coming soon to Xbox Game Pass

By Heidi Nicholas,
It's been all about Xbox Game Pass for the past few days. Five games were announced as leaving soon, followed by three more games leaving Xbox Game Pass this month. On the plus side, a new wave of titles has been confirmed as arriving this month to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Some, like the Yakuza Remastered Collection, we already knew about, but several are new announcements: Desperados III and Donut County are on the way for Android, console, and PC on January 21st, with Cyber Shadow on the way for Android, console, and PC on January 26th.

Desperados III

Desperados III

Description: Desperados III is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario. Play smart if you want to succeed. A good plan can make the difference between survival and finding yourself at the business end of a pistol. In this long-awaited prequel to the beloved classic Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, John Cooper will join forces with the runaway bride Kate, the shady hitman Doc McCoy, the giant trapper Hector, and Isabelle, a mysterious lady from New Orleans. On Cooper’s quest for redemption, his adventures lead him and his gang from rural towns, over swamps and riverbanks, and finally to a dramatic showdown worthy of Wild West legends.

Donut County

18/12/2018 - Carousel

Description: Donut County is a story-based physics puzzle game where you play as an ever-growing hole in the ground. Meet cute characters, steal their trash, and throw them in a hole. Raccoons have taken over Donut County with remote-controlled trash-stealing holes. You play as BK, a hole-driving raccoon who swallows up his friends and their homes to earn idiotic prizes. When BK falls into one of his own holes, he’s confronted by his best friend Mira and the residents of Donut County, who are all stuck 999 feet underground… and they demand answers!

Cyber Shadow

Cyber Shadow

Description: The world has been taken over by the evil Dr. Progen and his merciless synthetic army. A desperate plea for help sets Shadow, the sole survivor of his clan, on one last mission to uncover what started the path to perpetual ruin. Your robotic companion, L-Gion, is your only guide through the ruins of Mekacity. How far will Shadow go to protect his clan and the one he loves? Is there more to their bond than meets the eye? Only you can unlock the secrets to your clan's ancient powers. Hurry before you run out of time! The road to redemption awaits in Cyber Shadow, the quintessential Ninja Action game.
