At least five new games are coming to PC Game Pass in March, with more to be confirmed later in the month. The highlight is Guardians of the Galaxy, if only because it’s only five months old and still sells for $60 on Steam. It will join the service on March 10 and is apparently worth a look: our reviewer described it as “a surprisingly good time“which is a good appreciation when it comes to licensed superhero games.
Also in the barrel is Far: Changing the Tides, a contemplative post-apocalypse game about navigating a sci-fi ship through miserable lands. Launched today, it is the sequel to Far: Lone Sailsthat Andy dug in 2018.
Elsewhere, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 arrives on March 3, Kentucky Route Zero on March 10, and Young Souls – a beat ’em up 2D RPG – on the same day. If you’re using the Xbox cloud gaming service, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Kentucky Route Zero, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Young Souls will also be available there.
As always, a handful of titles will leave the subscription service in March, so if you haven’t taken the chance to play Nier: Automata, Phogs!, Torchlight 3, and The Surge 2, it might be time to start them before they disappear on March 15. You can also buy them directly with a 20% discount on the usual price.
Formerly known as Xbox Game Pass for PC, Microsoft’s “Netflix for Games” has gotten a wise PC brand change at the end of last year, it’s now PC Game Pass.
