Xbox Game Pass just revealed that it’s adding several big-name titles to its library in January.
On January 10th, Game Pass added classic fighter Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. Generally considered one of the better and more approachable Marvel vs. Capcom titles, UMVC3 boasts a roster of almost 50 characters to choose from for 3-on-3 brawls.
On January 17th, Game Pass is getting We Happy Few and The Lego Movie Videogame. The former was pretty much a buggy mess at launch, but it did contain some interesting ideas and might be worth checking out if you’re a Game Pass subscriber. Plus, Xbox recently acquired developer Compulsion Games, so the game’s addition to Game Pass is somewhat notable for that. As for The Lego Movie Videogame, it’s a LEGO game that follows The Lego Movie‘s storyline. It’s fun. What else do you want?
Last but not least, Game Pass is getting Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Saints Row: The Third on January 24th. Saints Row: The Third is arguably one of the best open-world games of all time and features the Third Street Saints fighting for their souls against the shadowy Syndicate. Shadow of Mordor is the first game in the Shadow series, and it most notably introduced the series’ unique Nemesis system.
Game Pass already added a couple of titles earlier in January, including Life is Strange 2‘s first episode, Ark: Survival Evolved, and Farming Simulator 17. Prior to that, in December, the subscription service got Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Mortal Kombat X, and Ori and the Blind Forest, as well as Ashen, Kindom Two Crowns, and Below.
