Xbox announces five new games coming for free to Game Pass – and four of them are day-one releases

XBOX fans are getting another batch of games to play for free, including four day-one releases and a very recent Batman game.

Microsoft announced on Tuesday the lineup of Xbox Game Pass games for the second half of September 2023.

A year later, Gotham Knights plays better than when it launched, and Game Pass subscribers will be able to play it for free

Party Animals is coming September 20, and it’s a brand-new game where you pick an animal to fight with against your friends.

The cute party brawler promises a variety of modes to play, and you can choose from a pool of 12 animals, from corgies to dinosaurs.

If pulling off the perfect money heist à la Ocean’s Eleven or Netflix‘s show of the same name is your fantasy, then Payday 3 is your game.

Launching into Game Pass on the day of its release, September 21, Payday 3 is a co-op shooter where you can team up with up to three friends to plan and execute heists.

The stealth system from previous games in the series has been rebuilt completely, so now you can go full-on sneaky mode.

On September 29, Game Pass subscribers are getting Cocoon as a day-one release.

From one of the creators of indies Limbo and Inside, this new adventure will have you leap between worlds to uncover a cosmic mystery.

Gotham Knights is coming to Game Pass on October 3, less than a year since the latest Batman game‘s original release.

Batman is dead in this one, so you’ll take the role of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin as they restore justice in Gotham City.

The game launched to mixed or average reviews, with an overall score of 67/100 on review aggregator Metacritic.

Since release, the developers have addressed many of the game’s issues with patches and updates, so it’s a much better experience than what we saw at launch.

The Lamplighter’s League is yet another title coming to Game Pass on the day of its release, October 3.

It’s a turn-based strategy game in the vein of XCOM and Gears Tactics, but it also adds real-time stealth.

Set in alt-history 1930s, it gives off strong Indiana Jones vibes and has an amazing art style to match.
