Xbox Game Pass Adds 2 Games Today

The latest Xbox Game Pass update added the full version of Everspace 2 for PC Game Pass subscribers, and Iron Brigade for console and cloud users. The two games are the latest to join the Xbox Game Pass lineup in April 2023, with a new game added earlier this week.

April 2023’s new Xbox Game Pass titles are off to a strong start thanks to the addition of Loop Hero on April 4. Loop Hero is a unique RPG where the hero controls himself and the player manipulates the world around him. It launched to mostly positive reviews and turned out to be a surprise hit in 2021, often hailed as one of the best new games of the year. While it wasn’t billed as an Xbox Game Pass Day 1 game, one could still argue that it fit the bill, since Loop Hero made its way to Game Pass the same day it debuted on Xbox.

Everspace 2 is another Xbox game that wasn’t marketed as a “day one launch,” but its full release still qualifies as it. Anyone with a PC Game Pass subscription or an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription can check out the full release of Everspace 2 starting today. Meanwhile, console and cloud users can try Iron Brigade, an older game originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2011 before coming to PC in 2012.

It was also recently confirmed that farming/living sim Homestead Arcana is coming to Xbox Game Pass on April 21st. However, the full game roster for the second half of April 2023 has yet to be announced, so it’s possible Xbox Game Pass subscribers have more to look forward to this month.
