Game Pass adds three new Xbox games today

By Sean Carey,

The Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass libraries grow again today, with three new games dropping into the subscription services, including Let's Build a Zoo and Valheim.

Let's Build a Zoo and the delayed Despot's Game join Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass today, while the highly-acclaimed survival game Valheim comes to PC Game Pass. Valheim is available to play now with PC Game Pass, and sadly, it looks like it doesn't support Xbox achievements. Perhaps developer Iron Gate will add achievements when Valheim eventually comes to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass in spring 2023.
