September 1st saw the next bunch of titles added to Xbox Game Pass. Leading the way are three huge titles, Halo: Master Chief Collection, Onrush and Quantum Break. We had already heard about Halo, but the addition of the 2018 released Onrush does come as a bit of a surprise. It’s no secret that it didn’t sell as well as expected, with Codemasters letting go of most of the senior studio team after release, but it is a really solid and fun racing game that will be in my thoughts when it comes to my 2018 GOTY nominations. You can read my review on TiX.
Quantum Break is not as much of a surprise, released in 2016 to middling reviews, most were waiting for it to appear on Games With Gold. Game Pass should give it some new life, as gamers like me missed out on the initial release, but will be happy to revisit the title now it’s free!
Other titles added are Manual Samual, Aven Colony, Sky Force Reloaded, Shadow Warrior, Inner Space and Giani Sisters Twisted Dreams. Of those, I have only played Aven Colony which is a great space city builder, with the inclusion of missions and challenges to complete, which I reviewed on This Is Xbox.
