Undertale & Octopath Traveler headline Xbox Game Pass late March additions

Toby Fox's highly popular Undertale and the previously Nintendo Switch-exclusive Project Octopath are among new titles coming to Xbox Game Pass soon.


Undertale is perhaps one of the most interesting RPGs to come out of the indie scene in years with its subversive style and charming cast and story. Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch fans have been enjoying a more traditional JRPG experience in Square Enix’s exclusive Octopath Traveler for quite some time already. What do these games have in common? Well, they’re both arriving on the Xbox Game Pass as part of its late March additions.

Shortly following after the major announcement that Outriders would be coming to Xbox Game Pass on its April 1 launch day next month, Xbox followed up with the announcement of a large collection of other games coming to the program throughout the later end of March. Notable among them were Undertale and Project Octopath. Xbox was the one console that the stellar Undertale had not made it to yet. Meanwhile, Octopath Traveler had been on Steam for PC since 2019, but was otherwise console-exclusive to Nintendo Switch until now. Undertale is available now and Octopath Traveler will be available on March 25, with both coming to both console and PC versions of Xbox Game Pass.

Here’s the full slate of titles coming soon to Xbox Game Pass as of today’s announcement:

  • Undertale (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 16, 2021
  • Empire of Sin (Cloud, Console, and PC) - March 18, 2021
  • Nier: Automata (PC) - March 18, 2021
  • Star Wars Squadrons (Console via EA Play) - March 18, 2021
