Xbox Game Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on PC and Xbox One have added not one, not two, but six new games, including three games that just released today and yesterday. More specifically, the PC version of the subscription service has six new games to play, including one of the highest-rated games of the year, Microsoft Flight Simulator. Meanwhile, subscribers on Xbox One only have three new games to enjoy, the most notable being the new Battletoads remake, which is also available on the PC version.
As always, Microsoft does not divulge how long any of these games will be available in each respective service. That said, a couple of the games are games from Xbox Game Studios, which means they will be hanging around forever. The others could be permanent additions, or they could be around only for a few months. In other words, be sure to check out these titles sooner rather than later.
Below, you can read more about all six games, as well as check out trailers for each:
