Furthermore, the following week will bring two additional titles to the library, including Afterparty on October 29 and LEGO Star Wars III on October 31. This doesn’t include Subnautica, which is set to arrive on Xbox Game Pass for Console on November 7. This means you’ve got a few weeks of great new games upcoming for the monthly Xbox subscription service, adding even more bang for your buck.

If you’ve never picked up Xbox Game Pass, you can do try the service out as a new customer for just $1 for your first month. For more info on that, head over to the Xbox website. Of course, probably the most exciting additions to Xbox Game Pass is The Outer Worlds.

Set to release this week, we recently posted our review of Obsidian’s new RPG, where Bill Lavoy wrote, “The Outer Worlds demands players put in the time and effort if they want the best it has to offer. It’s a fine game under any circumstances, but it’s a top-notch RPG with heavy consequences at almost every turn for those that are willing to immerse themselves. The Outer Worlds doesn’t tell you a story, it gives you a world full of interesting characters and asks you to tell your own.” For more info on the newest upcoming Xbox Game Pass titles head over to Xbox Wire.
