Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

KOEI Tecmo surprised with a brand new IP coming day one to Game Pass back in the June 2022 showcase. NIOH never made it to Xbox, so it’s good to see their latest title not only on Xbox but in the sub service

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty follows the dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.

The accuracy of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real time ray tracing on track lead to a generational leap in immersion. Forza Motorsport is the most technically advanced racing game ever made.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox

The game that Shpeshal Nick and Sikamikanico will be fighting to the death over. You are Benedict Fox, investigating his “last case” as a demonic curse is about to kill him. It’s a dark, dank metroidvania with lots of purple!

When they are attacked by one of these Shadows and all hope seemed lost, the power of the heart, their Persona is awakened. With this newfound power, they pursue the truth of the Dark Hour and face the destiny that awaits them.

Persona 3 Portable

The world-renowned Persona 4 Golden promises unforgettable adventures, meaningful bonds, and heartwarming experiences shared together with friends. They say your soulmate will appear if you stare into a television set on a rainy night… This strange rumor slowly spreads through the rural town of Inaba, the protagonist’s new home, just as a chain of mysterious murders begin. As the protagonist and his teammates chase after the truth, they find themselves opening the door to another world.
