The additions to Xbox Game Pass for mid-September 2022 bring many critically acclaimed games like Deathloop, Slime Rancher 2, Valheim, and more.

Xbox Game Pass September 2022

Deathloop

Available now on Cloud, PC and Xbox Series X | S.

“DEATHLOOP is a next-gen first person shooter from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind Dishonored. In DEATHLOOP, two rival assassins are trapped in a mysterious timeloop on the island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity. As Colt, the only chance for escape is to end the cycle by assassinating eight key targets before the day resets. Learn from each cycle – try new paths, gather intel, and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.” (xbox.com)

Deathloop comes to the Xbox Game Pass as the key addition. It will place you in the boots of Colt as he discovers new secrets and learns more about his targets in every loop he goes through. This game also supports multiplayer, as Colt will be hunted by his rival Julianna who can be controlled by another player. If you’re feeling devious, you can take on the role of Julianna and invade other players’ playthroughs and… mess with them a little. That being said, this is completely optional, and Julianna can be controlled by an AI, so you don’t miss out on any of the action.
