Game Pass Adds 6 Titles to the Service, Including Monster Hunter Rise and Two Persona Games

New year means new games on Game Pass! The first wave of January is a little light, 3 new games on the service and 3 more coming later, but the titles added are fairly high quality. Let’s take a look!


Mortal Shell: Enhanced Edition

A Souls-like where you take control of various characters (the titular shells) for various power-ups. The game features a dark and foreboding world that will test your combat skill all throughout.

Available now on PC, Cloud, and Console.


Stranded Deep

A survival game set on a tropical island in the middle of the ocean. Survive on the island, build a new home for yourself, and find a way to escape the scorching sun and salty seas and return to civilisation.

Available now on PC, Cloud, and Console.


Persona 3 Portable & Persona 4 Golden

Persona 5 is one of the most well-loved turn-based RPGs of all time (and the Royal version is also on Game Pass), but its predecessors are no slouches. 3 Portable and 4 Golden use a similar style of gameplay where it’s split between interacting with your friends during one half of the game and exploring elaborate dungeons during the other.

Available on PC, Cloud, and Console on January 19th.


Monster Hunter Rise

The latest entry in the monster slaying series. As the name implies, you get to hunt gigantic monsters with a wide variety of weapons and classes. If you’ve played Monster Hunter World, this is very similar, albeit more fast-paced.

Available on PC, Cloud, and Console on January 20th.


Game Updates

In terms of updates to existing titles, Vallheim gets a new biome for you to explore in the form of the Mistlands. That’s about it. Yeah. Did we mention this is a light update?


Leaving Soon

The following games will be leaving the service on January 15th. If you have any unfinished business in them, now’s the time to wrap it up.

  • Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Nobody Saves The World (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Pupperazzi (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • The Anacrusis (Game Preview) (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • We Happy Few (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Windjammers 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
