January 16, 2019 / MIKE MINOTTI

Microsoft announced more new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass in January. These include the creepy dystopian game We Happy Few, the Tolkien-inspired open-world game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and the over-the-top open-world game Saints Row: The Third.Xbox One console exclusives from Microsoft like Forza Horizon 4 come out to Game Pass on the same day as their retail releases. Adding new titles to the service, including third-party games, can help improve Game Pass’ library.Game Pass is a standout program for Microsoft. While Sony has a similar service with PlayStation Now for PlayStation 4, Xbox Game Pass is outclassing it in terms of library quality. Nintendo only offers retro games in any kind of subscription-based service (which is tied into its general online gaming plan). Having a steady stream of new games is important if Game Pass wants to be successful in 2019.
