Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC are due for a treat on March 10th. Subscribers to Game Pass will get four new games in five days, including two well-known and well-received titles. Lawn Mowing Simulator, which is not one of the aforementioned critically praised games, will only be available on the Xbox One edition, while the other three will be available on all platforms.
Young Souls, Kentucky Route Zero, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy round out the list. While Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Kentucky Route Zero both have Metacritic scores of 83, they stand out from the rest of this year’s new releases. The latter has received Metacritic scores ranging from the mid 80s to the upper 90s, depending on the platform. Our Best Single-Player Award went to Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, with a score of 80.
The Guardians of the Galaxy: “An all-new Guardians of the Galaxy adventure sets the stage for an exhilarating trip throughout the galaxy. In this action-adventure game, you assume the role of Star-Lord, guiding the Guardians of the Universe through a series of escalating catastrophes. You’ve got this. Probably.”
In the words of the developers, Kentucky Route Zero is a “magical realism adventure game” about a hidden highway that runs through the tunnels beneath Kentucky and the enigmatic people that frequent it.
Xbox Game Pass users will receive a 20 percent discount on each of these titles and all of their DLC once they become available through the subscription service. Having said that, we have no idea how long any of these games will be available as part of the subscription service, thus we have no idea how long this discount will be available at the time of purchase.
