Game Pass Adds 10 New Games to the Service, Including Deathloop, Grounded, and Slime Rancher 2
We have a new wave of games being added to Game Pass this month, and on the same day PlayStation Plus updates its own Game Catalogue, what a coincidence! We have 10 titles to go through, plus another that was released earlier in the week, so let’s get into it!
First up, though, Aragami 2 was listed as leaving the service in the previous update. Thankfully, that’s not the case, and the game will remain on the service; and as always, you can check out our Game Pass vs PlayStation Plus article to see which service is best for you.
Speaking of “coincidences”, looks like Deathloop hits both subscription services at the same time. You’ll excuse us if we just copy-paste the description of the game: Deathloop is a First Person Shooter where you’re stuck in a time-loop until you kill all the key characters on the Island of Blackreef.
Something of note not just with this game, but with a lot of titles on this list, is that they’re only available for the Series consoles. This means that Xbox One consoles are being left behind, which was inevitable, but it’s still sad to see.
Available now on PC, X|S and Cloud today.
Hardspace: Shipbreaker is a slow-paced game where you float in space to cut off and collect various pieces of space debris to pay off an impossibly-high debt. In this game, your life is not worth as much as the tools you use to get rid of space junk.
Available now on X|S and Cloud today.
Amazing Cultivation Simulator
Despite what the name might have you believe, this is actually a gorgeous 2D strategy sim and management game inspired by Chinese mythology. Go in search of immortality while also dealing with pandas, fires and dragons.
Available now on PC.
Ok, who gave the spiders lightsabers? SpiderHeck is a 4-player brawler where you and up to 3 friends swing around both your laser swords and yourselves in order to try to stab each other, or you can play co-op to survive a swarm of insects. Not much else to say, other than “It’s over, Arachnid! I have the high ground!”.
Available September 22nd on PC and Console as a day 1 title.
A cute and creepy adventure game about changing fate. Go out into the world with Luka and his friends and uncover the secrets behind the strange events in their home town, while making out new friends and uncovering hidden truths.
Available September 22nd on PC, Console and Cloud as a day 1 title.
Slime Rancher 2 (Game Preview)
The sequel to the 2017 acclaimed title, Slime Rancher 2 is about managing a ranch full of slime. Obviously. You’ll make a living by wrangling a variety of slimes and taking them to the Far, Far Range.
If you’re wandering what “Game Preview” is, it means that the game isn’t finished and it’s still in active development. This is the equivalent to Steam’s Early Access.
Available September 22nd on PC, X|S and Cloud as a day 1 title.
A grim metroidvania with souls-like elements. You are clayborn warrior Grey Irma, a being made out of clay, who must uncover the mystery of their existence in a cruel and challenging world while facing off against relentless enemies and the mistress of the Moon.
Available September 27th on PC, Console and Cloud as a day 1 title.
Have you seen “Honey, I Shrunk the Children”? No? Well, you should, it’s a fun movie. On an unrelated note, Grounded is a game where 4 children the size of a pea must fight their way through their back yard in order to make it back home. The game, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, gets its final update this month, completing the story of the game and offering players the full package.
Available September 27th on PC, Console and Cloud.
Let’s Build a Zoo
A cute pixel-art management sim where you build a theme park. No, wait, that’s a different game. In this one, you build a Zoo, where you’ll try to keep your visitors happy and deal with various events. Your visitors are bored of your animals? Throw caution out the window and start splicing them to get new types of animals!
