Microsoft has announced several new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC starting today, including Night Call today, and Observation, The Messenger, and Streets of Rogue on June 25.
Get the details below.
■ Coming Soon
- Night Call (Console, [email protected]) – As a cab driver working the Paris night shift, you’re many things to different people: friend, confidant, counselor, voyeur. You have the keen ability to get people to talk; and that’s exactly what you’ll need to do. In seven nights, a corrupt detective plans to pin a series of murders on you unless you can aid the investigation. Pick up passengers, listen to their stories, and gather clues to solve a mystery in three unique cases.
- Observation (Console & PC, [email protected]) – A sci-fi thriller uncovering what happened to Dr. Emma Fisher, and the crew of her mission, through the lens of the station’s artificial intelligence S.A.M. Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station’s control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma in discovering what is happening to the station, the vanished crew, and S.A.M. himself.
- The Messenger (Console, [email protected]) – Already available on PC, welcome to Console! As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor.
- Streets of Rogue (Console, [email protected]) – A rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. Taking inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites, that adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of immersive sims and RPGs. Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life who are going about their daily activities.
■ In Case You Missed It
West of Dead (Console & PC, [email protected]) – Descend into the grim and gritty world of Purgatory in this fast-paced cover shooter which combines the fluidity of twin-stick controls and tactical cover usage. Dodge behind cover as you try to outgun your enemies in the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds.
