New Xbox Game Pass Games Include Two Huge Surprises

Microsoft has added six new games to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, one of which is Marvel's Avengers, and two of which come as a complete surprise. We knew Game Pass -- across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC -- was adding Dandy Ace, Unsighted, Astria Ascending, and Marvel's Avengers. Obviously, of these four games, Marvel's Avengers is the noteworthy addition. However, these aren't the only games Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now play. 

One of the two surprise games is Scarlet Nexus, an action-RPG from Bandai Namco that debuted back in June and right now, in a light year, is one of the more notable releases so far. The other surprise is 2019's AI: The Somnium Files from Spike Chunsoft, which isn't just a surprise Xbox Game Pass stealth release, but a surprise release on Xbox. Until today, it wasn't available on any Xbox console. Now it's available on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
