The latest addition to Xbox Game Pass is Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus Butterfly, a self-proclaimed “brew coffee and talk heart-to-heart simulator.” In the game, the player – as a barista – talks to customers (human or otherwise) and influences their decision about a hot drink, all while creating a wonderful Lofi atmosphere. Beyond that, Xbox Game Pass adds an Xbox One version of Medieval Dynasty, as the service already offers PC and Xbox Series X/S versions.
For Coffee Talk Episode 2, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can look forward to mixing ingredients and discovering new drinks, experimenting and discovering secret recipes to better connect with customers. They’ll also create latte art, learn about Seattle’s urban fantasy scene, and meet characters like elf freelance designer, succubus bisdev exec, and orc game developer (unlikely at Orcs Must Die!).
While opinions are clearly mixed, it’s worth noting that the first Coffee Talk’s review on comprehensive site OpenCritic is “fair,” with a top critic average score of 74 and 65% of reviewers recommending it overall. The sequel received “Strong” reviews on OpenCritic, with a top review average rating of 83, and 75% of critics recommending it. It goes to show how much the sequel has improved over the original, but of course, Coffee Talk Episode 2 does have rather niche appeal.
For Xbox One users, they can now view Medieval Dynasties. It combines Survival, Simulation, RPG and Strategy elements and tells the story of a man trying to build his dynasty in the Middle Ages. The release of both games on Xbox Game Pass means fans will be able to get them for free, and fortunately, those who prefer the other titles won’t have to wait long.
