Microsoft announces the first additions of Xbox Game Pass for the year 2021. PES and Torchlight are doing well.
After the winter break, Microsoft resumes its good habits and announces the new games that will integrate the Xbox Game Pass in the coming days.
January 2021 Xbox Game Pass games list
- eFootball PES 2021 Season Update (Cloud and console): January 7
- Injustice 2 (Cloud, PC and console): January 7
- The Little Acre (Cloud and console): January 7
- Neoverse (PC): January 14
- Torchlight III (Cloud and console): January 14
- What Remains of Edith Finch (PC): January 14
- YIIK: A Postmodern RPG (PC): January 14
We can note that in its announcement, Microsoft now speaks of available games ” in the cloud ” rather than ” on Android “. On the one hand, it helps prepare the arrival of the cloud gaming service on iOS and PC scheduled for spring, and on the other hand it makes it clearer that the games are not available for download on Android, but simply by streaming.
On the other hand, it’s a shame that Microsoft doesn’t specify when a game was already available on Xbox Game Pass on another platform. In this case, the game What Remains of Edith Finch is already available on Xbox Game Pass on Xbox consoles. What Microsoft announces today is its arrival on PC.
