This month Xbox Game Pass takes more from you than it gives you: premieres and farewells

With the arrival of February, Xbox GamePass has announced the novelties that will be included in its peculiar and endless catalog, and although once again the service delights us with a huge addition of games (10, no less), on this occasion, many users could feel sorry for the disappearance of some great titles that have given much to talk about in recent months.

Some arrive and others leave

contrast

Like every month, the Xbox Game Pass games catalog keeps recycling. It is a movement that continually keeps the service fresh, and although it is usually the additions that most surprise users, sometimes it is time to say goodbye to other games that have been quite liked. It is true that with the additions of February we can not complain too much.

Among the 10 titles that arrive, two are “day 1” additions, which allow subscribers to the service to enjoy the games completely free of charge from the first day they go on sale. These are Crossfire X, InfernaxYEdge of Eternity. The first is an expected shooter developed in part by Remedy that presents us with a single player campaign in which to complete the most colorful military operations; in Infernax we will enjoy a metroidvania with a lot of blood that is especially fun, and in Edge of Eternity We will have a quite spectacular open world JRPG on a visual level.

The rest of the arrivals are:

  • contrast (Cloud, Console and PC as of February 3)
  • dreamscaper (Cloud, Console and PC as of February 3)
  • telling lies (Cloud, Console and PC as of February 3)
  • Beige (Cloud, Console and PC as of February 10)

Goodbyes

Control

And as we said at the beginning of the article, the month of February will be remembered in Xbox Game Pass for the farewells, since great games will disappear from the catalog after several months in the showcase. The affected are Control, Code Vein, Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age, The Medium, Project Winter Y The Falconeer.

all these games eliminate their cloud, console and PC versions, so there will be no chance to play them again on Xbox Game Pass unless you definitely buy the game. It was nice while it lasted!

Cases like Control and The Medium are especially striking, since they are very important games that have received very good reviews among the public. Launched in January 2021, The Medium has been available to subscribers of the service for a full year, so it hasn’t been bad at all.

These changes are just one more reminder that the xbox game pass catalog it is amazing, but not permanent, so in case you fall especially in love with a game, you should be very clear that sooner or later it may leave you forever.
