S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Is One Of 20 Indies Coming To Xbox Game Pass On Day One

1 post in this topic

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and numerous other games have been confirmed as day one Xbox Game Pass titles, helping expand the service in a massive way. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is one of many various highly-anticipated games coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one, making it accessible to both fans and those looking for something entirely new to play.

As Xbox Game Pass continues to grow, it has has added massive additions. Not only will Square Enix's upcoming Destiny-like shooter, Outriders, come to Xbox Game Pass on day one. but even the back catalog has been increasing exponentially. With the recent acquisition of Bethesda, Microsoft was able to add 20 of the best games of the last three generations ranging from Morrowind to Fallout 4. The service has been hailed as one of the greatest values in gaming, simply due to how many incredible games are available for the reasonably priced subscription. Today's ID@Xbox showcase continued to prove why the value of Xbox Game Pass isn't being exaggerated.

Xbox console-exclusive S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is one of 20 games that will be coming to the service when they launch. The highly-anticipated RPG is one of the biggest among the line-up as it will scratch the itch of those looking for an immersive survival game not too dissimilar from something like Fallout. The open-world game doesn't have a concrete release date quite yet but is currently slated to release in 2021.

Not only is it exciting that Microsoft was able to snag S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 as an exclusive, but to be able to offer it on Xbox Game Pass is an incredible deal. The otherwise-niche series will get its time in the sun now, possibly giving it a huge new audience. Whether or not it'll be enough to spawn more sequels is unclear, but Bethesda's Todd Howard has previously stated that Xbox Game Pass is good for developers, as it allows for more exposure and experimentation in gaming.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will help pad out what appears to be a rather quiet year for Microsoft in terms of major exclusives, especially given the fact it's only on Xbox Series X and PC. Halo Infinite will also come out later this year, another Xbox Game Pass addition, but it's nice to see Microsoft investing in diverse titles for its console. All of the indie games coming to the subscription service will not only give players totally new experiences for no extra cost, but also give otherwise unseen developers a whole new audience.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will be available for Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2021.
